Polynesian-themed bar South Seas Tiki Lounge opened this summer to give Charleston a taste of the vacation life. The space turned into an instant hit with the menu of mai tais, zombies, and more. People couldn’t get enough of the bamboo and kitschy mugs, so South Seas decided to expand its footprint on Ann Street.
South Seas general manager Yoanna Putri and bar manager Michael Leslie recently showed off the new space to Eater. There’s booths for lounging, authentic hulu skirts on the walls, a cozy fireplace, a fun, hanging lounge chair, a beverage cart for group punches, and lots more bamboo.
Take a look at the photos here. South Seas is open Wednesday through Sunday, starting at 5 p.m., and noon on Saturdays. Find the tropical bar at 23 Ann St.
