Life’s a beach for Tiger Tiger

Hula hosts and tiki makers sought as Aberdeen venue gets Pacific flavour


A CITY centre venue in Aberdeen is aiming to being a hint of Hawaii to the Granite City when it says ‘aloha’ this Saturday (September 8).

The relaunch of Tiger Tiger will see the Shiprow venue transformed into a Polynesian-themed cocktail bar with a list of exotic drinks made by tiki cocktail makers and served by hula hosts.
Drinks have been named to tie in with the Pacific theme, such as Dead Man’s Chest and Krakatoa.
Inspired by the laid back beach huts of the south sea islands, the new Kanaloa bar, named after the Hawaiian god of the sea, is billed as a “tropical oasis”, offering guests a more relaxed approach to life.
“Kanaloa is going to be an exciting addition to the Aberdeen night life,” said the venue’s general manager Chris Askew.
“The space within the venue will be totally unique; with staff welcoming guests with floral leis and creating some fantastic sharing cocktails never before seen in Aberdeen.
“We need staff who are happy to have a good time, enjoying mixing with people and know how to limbo.”
The move is expected to safeguard 50 jobs and create new opportunities for up to 25 new recruits.
