Ollie Vee’s, Leighton Buzzard’s vintage and retro emporium, has officially launched its tiki cocktail bar in time for Christmas after transforming its cafe and basement into a tropical hideaway.
The shop, in Market Square, is celebrating the opening with free entry to its Hawaiian Christmas party on Friday, November 28, followed by an entire weekend of cocktails and music.
The launch comes as Ollie Vee’s aims to become the most exclusive music venue in Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, with live acts new to the region, the only tiki speakeasy in the surrounding area and limited ticketing for truly intimate gigs.
The tiki bar will open from the Friday night for the turning on of the Leighton Buzzard Christmas lights and fireworks display, with mulled wine and tropical cocktails available until 1am as DJs spin hula rock ‘n’ roll vinyl records from a bamboo hut.
On Saturday, November 29, Hazel and the Finger Choppers will play live rockabilly blues downstairs in the tiki lounge. Tickets available DJs and drinks will continue until 1am.
The bar will also open on the Sunday afternoon while the rest of the vintage shop will be open all day as usual.
