On the corner of Portobello Road in Notting Hill sits the fabulously retro cocktail bar Trailer Happiness – in their own words – ‘a brilliant lounge bar, den and kitschen’. Heading downstairs the chic hangout has the easy luxe feel of a Californian-style bachelor pad, with a tiki twist. J.H. Lynch and Tretchikoff prints hang on the walls and 60′s beaded curtains provide decoration. The couches and stools are low to the ground, but this isn’t about pastiche, it’s about fun. The food is hearty: expect such dishes as Uncle Leroy’s Lamb and Lemon Racks, Alabama Black Snake Sesame Shrimp and Where You Been All My Life? Crispy Roast Duck. Washed down with one of the Tiki Classic or Homage cocktails it’s a surefire way to start a classic night out. For a more educational night the bar also offers cocktail classes – perfect for the suave bachelor in training.
