London: Cocktails at Trailer Happiness in Notting Hill

Just off of Portobello Road in Notting Hill is a basement level gem of a tiki bar called Trailer Happiness. While the name could be misleading, it’s actually a charming little place and perfect for a fun weekend night out.

The atmosphere is lively – meaning, expect loud music and conversation to match. While there are some tables (first-come, first-served), the small size means that people also mingle throughout.

Described as offering, “classic and original cocktails with a tiki twist,” the drinks have fun names like Polynesian Princess, with Finlandia vodka, homemade watermelon syrup, citrus and champagne and Port Light, banana infused Woodford Reserve Bourbon agave citrus with a Trailer grenadine float.
