Introducing Tiki Barge, South Baltimore's new tiki bar

Oh. My. Goodness.

Tiki Barge, a floating barge with a swimming pool and two tiki bars, has opened at the end of a dock in Harborview Marina, at 500 Harborview Drive.

Take a second, have a look at the photo, and digest what I just told you. OK.

Bud Craven, who, with his daughter Shawna, helped run the tiki bar outside Bo Brooks in Canton, took over a swimming pool barge a couple months ago and started renovating it ...

They built two bars and set up real palm trees. Tiki Barge officially opened Memorial Day weekend, using the marina's liquor license, Craven said. 

Beers are about $3.50, and rail mixed drinks are $3.75. Swimming in the pool costs a $10 fee, which includes one free drink.

The whole setup is pretty killer, according to Midnight Sunner ryan97ou, who is currently chilling down there in the pool as I type this. Consider me jealous.

Tiki Barge is open 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Sundays-Thursdays and 11 a.m.-midnight Fridays and Saturdays. The pool opens at 10 a.m. and closes at 8 p.m.
