“It ties in a little bit to the overall theme of being connected to the ocean,” says co-owner Travis Howard. “We didn’t want this place to just feel like a carbon copy of Yellowbelly, but to have that connection.

There are also floor-to-ceiling windows, light wood tables, and seating along two walls. Events manager Lauren Wiggins designed the interior furnishings, including creating some of the artwork. Wiggins insists that she doesn’t think of herself as an artist, but her work is key to the cozy contemporary feeling that The Hideout exudes.
