The newly launched Tiki-shack KoKoMMo at InterContinental Mahabalipuram will change the way Chennai parties. By Shikha Pushpan
Set against the Bay of Bengal at the InterContinental Mahabalipuram, KoKoMMo is the new uber-chic beach shack Chennai has so long been waiting for. Named after The Beach Boys’ hit number Kokomo, the place nails the vibe of a vibrant beachside shack with great food and affordable beverages, while also keeping it low key with its limited seating of 40 guests.
Open to both hotel guests and city revellers alike, KoKoMMo is an evening dining and entertainment destination for those who like to enjoy their drinks under the stars, with toes tucked in the sand. While the place offers a mix seating of 4, 6, and 8 guests by the beach, the private picnic table steals the show for its intimate setting.
Here, the food comes from a colourful truck, where Chef Indrashish Saha curates a Globally Local (Glo-cal) inspired menu, offering interesting plates of tapas, grilled meats, and coastal curries. However, the real star at KoKoMMo is its elaborate Liquid Menu. The drinks are inspired by Hawaii’s Tiki-ti-Bar concept, so look forward to a lot of funky yet artisanal cocktails and the house-favourite sangria. Oh yes, they also serve Tamil Nadu limited beers and wines for those who enjoy the local flavours.
Another first for the city, KoKoMMo is the first in Chennai to introduce the trend of Full Moon Parties and also offers exclusive screening of matches and movies by the beach. So, the next time you want to take your partner for an exclusive movie screening, or cheer for your favourite football team with your gang of friends, you know where to head. Also, it’s advisable to make prior bookings to avoid disappointment.
Come September, and the place will be host to ‘Inspired Social’, a monthly, themed concept where young entrepreneurs and artists will share the platform to showcase their talent.
