After shutting down iconic Decatur cocktail bar Paper Plane earlier this year, the Victory Brands team is ready to launch a new concept in the space. Word on the street says The SOS Tiki Bar, led by Shanna Mayo of Victory Sandwich Bar fame, is soft opening and pouring up tiki beverages.
Paper Plane's Instagram account and Facebook page have been updated to reflect the changes, and Eater Atlanta has reached out to Victory Brands for further details. The tiki bar concept isn't a huge surprise considering the language used to announce Paper Plane's revamp.
"Aloha, gang. We have an announcement to make over this airplane intercom thing. As many of you know, Paper Plane has stopped food service this month. And at the end of August, after two-and-a-half years, we will stop all service. Paper Plane is taking its last flight, soaring off into the Decatur sunset. ... Many of you have asked what's going to replace Paper Plane. ... We've got something even more (coco)nuts than that. See you soon, and until then, Mahalo, Y'all!"
Update: November 5, 4 p.m. The SOS will officially open to the public Friday at 5 p.m., according to a Facebook announcement.
