Bad News - the pitt rivers is closed for a refit until the spring...

Good News - the refit is only the entrance, they are not messing with the wonderful old school museum feel of the rest of the space. I'll keep you posted.

What say we make a point of organising a TikiCentralite's visit to the Pitt Rivers on its opening in Spring?

However, would like an excuse to visit the new bar a bit sooner than that!

I'm going to be passing through Oxford during the Xmas break on the way to visit relatives - does anyone know the opening hours on the 30th of Dec?


Also, do they sell the mugs?

I'm going to be in Reading for the next couple of weeks, and I was wondering if anyone in the local Ohana has been here yet. If so, is it worth a visit, or is it just a weeklong student debauch? When is the best time to go so I don't have to be surrounded by drunken Oxford 20-somethings looking to bash my skull in?

Mahalo in Advance,

Mr. BH

The first idea I ever had at what a tiki bar could look like was right after viewing some Shag work. Very crisp, clean, modern tiki and I think that place nails that. Classy and soon to be a classic.

Love those Blue Puffers (time to switch out the bulbs in my blow fish and buy a couple more).

update....

I went during the holiday perion (on the 30th of December to be precise) - unfortunately they were closed!

They only seem to open as a late bar (10pm - the early hours) so check before travelling.

RE: the mugs - apparently they aren't allowed to serve drinks in them - probably some stupid food hygene law - so they have been selling them on eBay.

Good to know. Sounds like I'll have to give it a pass, as this is way past my bedtime...

Amazing to see this place in my old stomping ground.
Jamie - you've done an incredible job, judging by the photos!

I'm in Oxford this weekend for my brother's stag night and with a bit of luck I'll be able to steer
the stag party in that direction.

Does anyone know if 10:00 pm is still the opening time? It's just that by that time we'll have been drinking solidly for 7 hours.......

I went there holloween night. It was a shame that the toilets aren't so great. Its also annoying that the glasses/bottles are plastic. I didn't see any mugs?

Looks great though, massive place.

Thanks Woody, good to see you are back, give them a call to see what time they open.
Hadjuk, unfortunately Oxrord city council have decided that most bars cannot use glass anymore. They are looking at producing resin or acrylic tiki mugs.

What an absolutely redicul-arse reason to be not able to use tiki mugs in a bar, bloody nanny state.
I'm always worried that any future Scottish tiki bar won't be able to serve four people volcano bowls due to the fact it might "encourage over drinking".
