Welcome to Avantiki—a quirky fusion of Christmas cheer and tiki escapism found in LoHi and Boulder. As we gear up for the holiday season, Avanti Food & Beverage unveils a pop-up opening this Friday that’s as unexpected as it is enticing.
Imagine this: hula dancers swaying, Santa ditching his classic suit for a Hawaiian shirt, and snow intermingled with sand—all set against the backdrop of festive lights. This ain’t your typical winter wonderland, folks.
Avantiki isn’t just about the setting; it’s about the drinks. Think spiked eggnog, boozy punch bowls, and cocktails that transport you from the Rocky Mountains to a Polynesian paradise in a single sip. And let me tell you, they do not skimp on flavor.
Sure, there’s an entrance fee—$5 to be exact—but here’s the kicker: part of that dough goes to the Culinary Hospital Outreach Wellness. So, you’re not just getting into a magical holiday oasis; you’re also spreading some goodwill while you’re at it.
The menu? It’s a curated selection of bites that complement the whole tropical-meets-holiday vibe. Ham & Cheese Mini Tortas, Chicharrones with Roasted Avocado Salsa Verde, and some funky Tiki Snacks—it’s a culinary adventure waiting to happen.
Avantiki’s vibe is an eclectic mix of festive trimmings and island vibes. It’s where you forget about your worries and dive headfirst into a cocktail dilemma—because deciding between holiday-inspired drinks here is the toughest decision you’ll make.
So, whether you’re in it for a new kind of Christmas celebration or just need a break from the winter chill, Avantiki invites you to embrace the aloha spirit amidst the festive fervor. Here, the holidays are reimagined in a way that only Avanti Food & Beverage could pull off. Cheers to that!
