For all those who have wished for sipping on cocktails or grabbing a beer in a beach shack, here is some good news! You need not make plans for Goa.

InterContinental Resort Chennai (located just before you hit Mahabs on ECR!) has launched city’s first tiki shack, KoKoMMo where you literally have drinks by the beach. The place has an awesome vibe, great music and delicious food and cocktails. To top that the bright and colourful bar, thatched cabanas and bamboo fence almost make you sing with joy.

The joy of sipping on sangrias or coconut-based cocktails at a beach shack as the golden sands serenade you and the orange glow of the setting sun makes for a postcard setting. KoKoMMo is open from 4 pm to 11 pm. The cocktails and appetizers are a fusion of local and international flavours. They have drinks prepared with curry leaves, juniper leaves and ginger. Items on the food menu include the likes of podi baguettes, crab gassi, scallop pollichadu, pork ribs and lots of other options.

With the city gearing up for the IPL and keenly looking forward to CSK’s comeback, KoKoMMo also plans to set up screens to catch the matches right at the beach. In due course of time, the bar will also host flea markets and film screenings.

You can legitimately drink on the beach at KoKoMMo. Ensure you have someone sober to drive back home!
