It's the Polynesian-esque club famed for its champagne treasure chests and A-list clientele – and Mahiki is hoping to make a comeback as it opens a swanky new venue on Prince Harry's doorstep.

Mahiki Kensington has conveniently opened its doors next to Prince Harry's home, Kensington Palace, and is hoping to lure back its old clientele with its slick new venue.

The new haunt is dubbed by founders as a 'grown up Mahiki' and they hope the blue-blooded clubbers that frequented the venue ten years ago will take a night off their babysitting duties and enjoy a more sophisticated night on the town. 

The Duchess of Cambridge famously enjoyed wild nights out at Mahiki during her brief split from William in 2007 and Prince Harry was often seen stumbling out of the venue in the small hours.

The venue has replaced Alpine lodge-themed Bodo's Schloss, which was a firm favourite of the A-list (with rumours that Prince Harry had a tunnel leading from his house into the venue).

The new souped up club has a swanky Pan Asian restaurant, Pufferfish, with the ex head chef from Aqua Kyoto hand searing sushi at diners' tables, as well as a raw bar.

Fans of Mahiki's signature champagne treasure chests (including Prince William who cites it as his favourite drink) will be delighted to know it's still a menu staple – but doesn't come cheap at £100 a pop.

The venue is also offering brunch parties on Saturdays and Sundays with never-ending mimosas and bottomless bloody Mary's. Waiters and waitresses don uniforms designed by 'Queen of Vintage' Vivien of Holloway, creator of the 1950s style dresses worn by the likes of Amy Winehouse and Paloma Faith.

The venue is the brainchild of the co-founders of Albert's private member's club, Fraser Carruthers, Carlo Carello and Jake Parkinson Smith (pictured), who are all good friends with the royals, as well as Mahiki founders and entrepreneurs, Piers Adam and David Phelps

Speaking about the new launch, Piers Adam told MailOnline: 'Mahiki are so excited to be opening its second London site. After 10 years, Mahiki is now an institution and an authority on award-winning cocktails. 

'Mahiki Kensington will not only retain its reputation for fun, but it will also be introducing a world class head chef specialising in Asian cuisine.'
