The drinks menu also offers that sense of island escape, with mai tais, piña coladas and, of course, the “ultimate margarita”, made with casamigos blanco tequila straight on tap.
“This place, you walk in, and you can just see it was meant to be fun,” said Denise Scherrer.
“Fun” is part of the Thirsty Parrot philosophy. The owners described their staff as a family that enjoys working in the company of each other.
An employee, Chris Barns, said he drives 40 minutes a day to come to work at the Thirsty Parrot.
“There are a hundred other restaurants I could work at, but why not help the people I love? Said the barns.
The owners of Legends and Thirsty Parrot have said they are delighted to provide a unique experience for their visitors. Guests can start the evening at Legends, savor a meal, and then end the night next door with tropical cocktails.
The bar is still in its infancy, and its official opening is still on the horizon. But the Scherrer-Vassos team is more than up to the challenge.
“We still have work to do, but we are excited,” said Lexus Scherrer. “We are really happy to be here.
