Bust out the Hawaiian shirts. Blue Kahunas is a new bar that brings a touch of tiki escapism to Newcastle (and a whole lotta rum, too).
Owners Prudence Farquhar and Byron Marzinotto have brought a touch of the tropical to a site which was previously a newsagency. They’ve got a short sharp list of 12 cocktails, with standard bearers like the Mai Tai and Zombie sitting alongside some signature serves from the bar.
You can find Blue Kahunas on the Instagram here, and in real life at 3/146 Hunter Street Newcastle, open Wednesday to Sunday from 5pm.
