Honi Honi Launches "Maka Hiki Lounge" Pop-Up At The Upper House
Maka Hiki Lounge, a collaboration between Honi Honi and The Upper House has launched this January. Meaning "new beginning", the pop-up is located within the lush greenery of The Lawn and Level 6, which has been transformed into an elegant tiki haven with two distinct designs and features. The pop-up aims to become an urban oasis and city escape with a day-to-night concept that will hopefully draw crowds from hotel guests to locals.
Offering an extensive menu of drinks and bar bites inspired by islands from around the world, Maka Hiki Lounge is also hosting regular events, giving everyone the opportunity to experience this new take on tiki culture. From 8am, an all-day cafe serving light breakfast and daily specials are available, with teas from the homegrown brand, Plantation by teakha, CBD-infused beverages and "12 Noon" juices also included.
From 12pm onwards, bar bites will takeover featuring poke miso cones, Cubano pulled pork sandwich, codfish acras, Jamaican jerk chicken skewers, BBQ pineapple beef mini burgers and more. For sweets, Maka Hiki Lounge is introducing its rhum baba infused in a delicious rum syrup. A curated wine selection is also available.

To go with the food, a number of events will be open to the public such as Naugh'tiki Tuesdays, Wine Not Wednesdays, the exclusive Cigar and Rum Tastings, Tiki Cocktail Clubs, a fun behind-the-bar cocktail making workshop led by a tiki cocktail expert, and a monthly guest bartending shifts from Hong Kong's most well-known mixologists.
"We are very excited to collaborate with The Upper House—providing a sanctuary for people who are craving a sense of escapism from the bustling city and their everyday lives. Maka Hiki Lounge was designed around the reinvention of the classic tiki concept and represents a sophisticated ‘tiki-chic’ Polynesian vibe with timber and bamboo, with an unmissable outdoor terrace showcasing an oasis of lavish greenery. The exciting events that we have lined up will also give people the opportunity to experience tiki culture in the heart of the city," says Max Traverse, Honi Honi's managing director.
