Tiki trend winds (Painkiller, Réunion) are approaching gale force. Avoid the tropical depressions of coconut bras and blue scorpion bowls by taking shelter at Michael Stillman’s new AvroKO-designed supper club.
At this Polynesian oasis, clean water is in no short supply — would you like still, sparkling, or fresh coconut? And pests are of no concern, thanks to Roman shades made from mosquito netting.
Go late and take refuge on a green crocodile banquette while scoping the scene in the bar’s mirrored hatches, which can be battened down if gusts (or guests) squall. Fortify with one of 42 numbered cocktails. We’ll have a No. 73 — Knob Creek, fresh lime, jicama, and cayenne in a fresh red pepper. Grab a card to jot down which numbers you sipped — and any other number you might want to save.
After nibbling on pupu platters, head downstairs for a fountain-poured rum and shoe shine ($8), and to admire bone friezes on the bathroom walls. The nightclub opens next month, so brace yourself for the inevitable aftermath.
The Hurricane Club, 360 Park Avenue, at 26th Street (212-951-7111 or thehurricaneclub.com). Opens Monday.
