16. S.O.S Tiki Bar


With its retro graphics, over-the-top fruit garnishes, and its menu-topping pupu platter, S.O.S has fully embraced tiki kitsch, but it’s still a serious cocktail destination—albeit one with a focus on rum rather than bourbon. Despite its small size, the bar likely has the most impressive rum selection in metro Atlanta.
