The S.O.S. Tiki Bar
Located in the old Paper Plane property, this intimate, kitschy spot has fantastic, boat-sized drinks alongside random carved Tiki heads and hula girls throughout. The menu is small but packs a big punch (both in terms of portions and flavors). Don’t miss the tender but crispy coconut shrimp, which come with a bitingly fresh jalapeño sauce, or the Polynesian spare ribs. Lined with cushy booths and intimately lit throughout, you'll actually be inclined to visit this tiki bar on nights that aren't even your birthday.
Atlanta is far from the tropics, but a visit to S.O.S. Tiki Bar could easily lead you to believe otherwise. With its dim lighting and retro decor, S.O.S. is one pour of rum away from moonlighting as a cozy cocktail bar in Maui. In actuality, S.O.S. Tiki Bar is located at the end of a small alley in downtown Decatur. During the warmer months, this alley becomes the ideal location for sipping an expertly made Zombie as you chat it up with friends. Given that you’re sure to work up an appetite after your first round of tiki-inspired cocktails, Asian-inspired bites from Mushi Ni are available to order at S.O.S.
