5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Went in when it was pretty busy and managed to get served really quickly. It was by one get one free too! Definitely will go back! I loved the starburst and solero! And music was hip hop/ rnb/ reggae...good times :)

“Great bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Kon tiki is my number one choice for starting a night out in swansea, great themed venue with plenty of atmosphere. they have a huge list of unique cocktails and shots which are made fresh in front of you! its a shame the venue is quite small and on busy nights or later on in the night it can be hard to move. But this hasn't stopped me from returning every time i go out!

“Great cocktails, shame about the noise.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

The place looks fantastic, and as one of the few places in Swansea that primarily serves cocktails, they certainly deliver one of the best experiences.

A group of 10 of us went here for a celebration, and although it was great to share a few cocktails amongst friends in an aesthetically pleasing locale, we all found it incredibly hard to talk because of the blaring music. It's not a large place, so the music just fills the room, drowning any attempt at chatting.

The noise level was on par with a club, rather than a bar. I'd recommend the owners turn the music down a notch or two. Other than that, it's worth checking out for the drinks alone.

Love it here! Awesome drinks, awesome tunes! Sometimes it's too busy in there but that's not surprising. A little bit expensive, but i never remember my own name when i leave ;-)

“Treasure chest cocktail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Went here for the first time last night, what an amazing place! The staff were friendly and efficient and the cocktails are fabulous! We were out celebrating and decided to buy their treasure chest cocktail. Pricey at £50 but made with quality alcohol and there was enough for 8 of us to share! I loved the fresh fruit that came with the cocktails too- I can't wait to go back!
