From the palm trees and flamingos to the frozen cocktails served in coconuts and pineapples, S.O.S. is one of the best places you can go for tiki drinks in the city. This popular Decatur spot is a great pre- or post-dinner stop if you’re hitting up The Iberian Pig or No. 246 nearby. They’re always throwing luaus or rum-themed parties and while we’re not sure what they’re celebrating, you don’t really need an excuse to enjoy a drink served out of a skull mug.
