Halloween is around the corner, which means it’s time for sipping spooky cocktails. At Last Rites, a Polynesian Noir adventure bar, get lost in the narrative of a doomed plane crash in a savage jungle perfect for Halloween scares. The bar itself is made from an airplane fuselage while the arm rests at the bar stools made from actual airplane seats
Drink next to tall stone idols in dark corners shadowed by banyan tree roots, foliage, and parachute fabric that envelopes the ceiling, and walls that flicker with small lanterns. At the bar, pick your poison sitting in real vintage airplane seats under an airplane fuselage bar back while ominous skull heads line the shelves.
