"Cane will be a Caribbean-themed, laid back tropical oasis in a refurbished
and refreshing location.
Rhum Bar and Caribbean Kitchen. This is going to be a great thing for Charleston, Paul is a great chef as well as a world renown mixologist.

It's probably safe to assume
that the "195 year old brickwork, 2 fires, an earthquake, a ton of
history, a truckload of memories and now a new lease on life, signaling that Rhum Bar and Caribbean Kitchen will

oasis in a refurbished and refreshing location."
Congratulations Paul on this spectacular adventure, This is a great location with a lot of history, perfect for "Cane". I hope that it flourishes under your guidance and expertise. I'm looking forward to visiting there once you get it open. ;o)
