Cane Rhum Bar + Caribbean Kitchen plans to open this fall at 251 East Bay St. First, the crews have the task of transforming the former Big John's Tavern space into a more tropical atmosphere. A few paint samples on the exterior of the building hint that a more ocean-colored hue may soon grace the space.

Cane wants to capture a "laid back tropical oasis" feeling, which will take some work to clean up the dark dive bar that once stood at the address. Keep eyes here for more progress reports on the Caribbean-themed restaurant.
