Park Lane reopens after undergoing striking Tiki-style transformation

Park Lane reopens after undergoing striking Tiki-style transformation

Park Lane has been transformed into a into a new tiki-style venue aiming to bring Caribbean vibes to the city.

The Market Street restaurant has been rebranded as Tiki Park after being given a striking new look in just three weeks.

Owner Forbes Innes decided to take the bold move to completely transform the venue after feeling it had fallen under the shadow of sister restaurant Granite Park.

Mr Innes explained: "We were experiencing a lot of overspill from our main restaurant Granite Park and tried to recreate that in the city centre [with Park Lane] but it just didn't really work.”

Despite a operating a popular lunch time service, the restaurant remained in the shadow of Granite Park since it opened in August 2013, and the decision was taken to give the city centre site its own identity with a new look.

Announcing the closure of Park Lane to Facebook fans on June 24, the team swiftly ripped out the furnishings to add bamboo, rope and woven grass features to reflect Park Lane’s changed guise into a more relaxed and laid back Caribbean-inspired restaurant.

Mr Innes added: "We've gone for a total revamp and changed it into a themed bar. We’ve built a beach hut over the bar with a grass roof with lots of bamboo and want to give the bar a holiday feel.

"We’ll be serving lots of marinated meats and fish influenced by the Caribbean which will be full of flavour. We’ll have tiki-style cocktails, lots of pina colada flavours but we’re still keeping our beers and wines and of course the fizz on tap."

With such a quick turnaround, the bar area will reopen to the public from Tuesday with Mr Innes confident the restaurant will be serving food by Friday – just in time for the weekend.
