SARASOTA, Fla.—After an eight-week renovation, Lido Beach Resort has debuted a new version of its poolside Tiki Bar.
The old canvas awnings and metal framing at the gulf-front bar have been replaced with palm fronds, solid wood posts, and bamboo siding. New tile flooring, furniture, lighting, fixtures, ceiling fans, and granite countertops provide a more modern feel, while the addition of flat-screen TVs embrace the pub environment.
The Sarasota bar serves a variety of starters, salads, burgers, and sandwiches. The menu includes crispy crab cakes, chicken quesadillas, the ocean reef salad, Lido burger, BBQ pulled pork sandwich, all-beef kosher hotdog, Louisiana shrimp po’boy and club sub. The venue also continues to serve draft, premium, and imported beers, wines by the glass and custom tropical drinks.
The reimagined bar complements the 2013 renovations to the Lido Beach Grille. The restaurant offers an eclectic selection of entrees and house desserts in an intimate, casual atmosphere.
