Humuhumu’s description

Trailer Happiness is a retro-California lounge in the Notting Hill section of London, opened by John Downey in 2004. Rather than a finding its inspiration in midcentury Polynesian restaurants, it aims for the feel of an American, kitch-heavy, basement rumpus room.
The tiki-heavy drink menu was developed with a helping hand from famed cocktailian Dale DeGroff.

I was served by Rasa at the bar on a Sunday evening. Her skills are quite good. Drinks were pretty good and tasty.

Lovely paintings throughout and nice and dark. Some other nice decor touches such as a mug display (outside) and a beautiful bar setup. However, even on a Sunday night, the music was super loud pop and the patrons were a mix of drunk revelers and middle aged men creeping on young drunk women. Ugh.

My wife and I had an excellent time there. The team of Tom and Joe were great to hang out with. They get it. It's a passion, not a job. The place isn't anywhere near as beautiful as the oldest tiki bar in London (no named shade being throw here) but what it lacks in old school tiki atmosphere it makes up with hospitality. You definitely are welcomed to their basement vs feeling like you're in a hotel bar. Good job! And the drinks were fantastic. Boom!

I had a really good experience at Trailer Happiness. The folks there took very good care of me. The drinks were very well made. They also had a really nice selection of rums.
