Voodoo Tiki Bar & Lounge will close and reopen as Caroline’s Aloha Bar in honor of former manager Caroline Smith-Adams, who died in September. Smith-Adams was Voodoo’s manager for nearly 15 years.
“Her smile would light up the whole room and there wasn’t a person she met that was a stranger. Our hearts are broken,” Voodoo wrote on social media last month.
The Avondale bar and restaurant temporarily closed after the death of Smith-Adams, who relocated to Charleston from Columbia when she was a child. She performed ballet at the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in the early 1990s and later attended James Island High School and the University of South Carolina Aiken, The Post and Courier wrote in September.
According to a press release, the 15 Magnolia Road space “will have a new look, new menu and new hours.”
“We are grateful for the love Charleston has given us over the last 15 years,” Caroline’s Aloha Bar owners Jen and Mike Kulick said in the release. “We’re excited to take this next step with family and friends.”
Voodoo Tiki Bar & Lounge will reopen as Caroline’s Aloha Bar on Oct. 22. For more information, visit carolinesalohabar.com.
