Flip Flops is the latest bar incarnation of the space on Old Greenville Highway opposite Lower Fike Field that was previously operated as the Fiesta Mexican Grill. Opened in the fall of 2009, the spare open interior features Mardi Gras-type slushy drunks with names like "Jet Fuel". A modest bar menu is offered.
From the web: "Flip Flops is a full service bar/restruant [sic] that features a wall of frozen drinks. Similar to the 'Fat Tuesday's' chain with a Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville vibe. Locations in Atlanta, Columbus, Auburn, - From the owner."
Flip Flops features live music on occasion and has played host to Greek parties, as well. WSBF-FM hosted a live show by Charleston band, Chronicles of the Land Squid, there in March 2010.
American Express, Mastercard, Visa and cash accepted.
Although the management had considered plans for soundproofing the building to avoid disturbing the adjacent residential neighborhood, these plans would not see fruition as the business shut its doors in May 2010.
