Stop by to shop or to attend any one of Bayshore’s upcoming summer events – including their Sounds of Summer live music series – and you’ll be treated to a brand new offering at The Yard, Bayshore’s central community area.

That’s because Mike Eitel, owner of Caravan Hospitality Group which operates Nomad World Pub, SportClub and Panga Bar/Nomad Board Sports, is bringing a brand new concept to the fore.

Flip Flop Tiki Bar is a new beach-inspired concession stand which is serving up a menu of grab-and-go appetizers, wraps, sandwiches and salads, along with beer, wine, seltzers, soft drinks and Nomad Nitro and cold brew.

Beginning in June, the menu will also expand to include a full tiki menu including slushies, tropical tiki drinks and margaritas.

Eitel says he’s been excited about all the new developments and summer festivities at Bayshore and feels it’s the perfect spot for the ttiki concept.

“The energy that we are seeing at Bayshore is palpable,” he says. “And there’s a renaissance happening here that we are happy to be part of.”

The Flip Flop Tiki Bar is open Wednesday through Friday from 3 to 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
