This popular Portobello Road basement bar calls itself a tiki bar, but the hilariously dodgy decor resists simple categorisation. It looks like a suburban-American rumpus room circa 1964; even Alan Partridge might find it a bit much. But underneath the thick layer of kitsch is a very good cocktail bar. Staff go to great lengths to make sure you order the right drink for you, and the bartenders know their business. They also spin a great ’60s playlist.
On weekdays, even though there can be sizeable crowds, you’ll be okay without booking. The semi-private room at the back is great for larger groups; the booths near the entrance are cosy, but have cramped leg-room.

Cool bar but the most uptight barmen I have ever experienced in the world. And that is sayong something! Spent £100 on a round and was told posit blank I couldn't have lime and salt for my tequila!! They weren't joking! Wtf?
Great vibe, nostalgic decor, cocktails that will make you go whoooosh maaate. This is a great place to hang out.
great staff, i mean you are part of the family, the family that works there for 24/24 hours a day, if you want if not you may enjoy the finest beverages, tropically made with fresh fruit for another refreshing experience, has all the moods you could need, from quiet chill tuesdays to a lit weekend banger with free entry and flexible funky music, rock on guys! You make consumerism amazing.
I've had some really superb evenings at Trailer -- fantastic drinks, great ambience, delicious food and super friendly staff. Everyone I've taken there has felt the same so I can't be wrong about it!
