The Sorrow Drowner


A Hideaway for the Adventurous at Heart

In 1893, Edward Bartholomew Wheatley III made a discovery in the mysterious ruins of Nan Madol that was destined to change history as we know it. So, whatever happened to that knowledge? Decades later, the Institute that he founded holds the key!

The Lemurian Institute cordially invites you to wander its Hallowed Halls! For thirty-odd years, what happens behind these doors has been a secret, but due to the generosity (and mismanagement) of the Institute’s defacto custodians, The Sorrow Drowners, those once locked doors have been opened to you!

The Sorrow Drowner is a Tiki-Inspired Adventure Bar from The Lemurian Institute and world renowned bar designer and former Imagineer Brandon Kleyla. It features tapas style dining and a full menu of tropical and exotic craft cocktails. Something is happening every night, but on Fridays and Saturdays expect a full Vaudeville style revue featuring music, comedy, magic, burlesque, and more! 18+
