Max’s South Seas Hideaway is a three-story tiki bar and restaurant located on Ionia Street near Stella’s Lounge. This unique restaurant transports guests into a fantasy world of perpetual tropical twilight outfitted with original and vintage tiki artwork and décor. A hand crafted cocktail menu created by award winning cocktail expert, Martin Cate, includes classic exotic cocktails pioneered by places like the legendary Don the Beachcomber and Trader Vic’s alongside original tiki libations exclusive to Max’s South Seas Hideaway.
“Exotic” and “tropical” were the two words that drove the creative direction of this site. Tiki bars are known for an oasis atmosphere with dim lighting and a sense of excitement, so the website had to convey the same vibe. Fun images of vintage décor alongside a dark ambiance work together to emit this strong sense of relaxation and adventure.
