Goodbye classy cocktail glasses. Hello tiki mugs.

Decatur’s Paper Plane is reopening tonight, Nov. 6, as The S.O.S. Tiki Bar.

The company’s Facebook page says, “We’re erecting a tiki temple, a house of thrill repute, a hidden beach within four walls, an intoxicating lagoon of hidden pleasures!!! Welcome to The S.O.S….leave all your troubles behind. Exotic drinks & food await you!!”

In August, Paper Plane teased patrons by announcing a closing.

“We’re happy to report that Wal-Mart will set up a small store in that space. Perfect for the Decatur-ite looking for guns, bullets, lawn chairs, half-off Christmas gear—really, anything,” the company said. “Of course, we are kidding. Put down your protest signs. We’ve got something even more (coco)nuts than that. See you soon, and until then, Mahalo, Y’all!”

Back in March, it was revealed that award-winning bartender Paul Calvert was parting ways with the establishment.

The S.O.S. Tiki Bar opens at 6 p.m.

    The author of this article is apparently quite misinformed in making a distinction between ‘classy cocktails’ and tiki mugs. A great number of now classic cocktails owe their existence to the tiki bar tradition, as does the fact that cocktail culture still existed in some popular form long enough to be rediscovered by this generation’s hip crowd.
