Tropical Liqueurs opened it’s first bar in downtown Columbia Missouri in the fall of 1985. We had seen several places like it and were convinced that the frozen cocktail concept would make a great addition to Columbia’s assortment of restaurants and bars. Although there are other operations like it, Tropical Liqueurs is totally independent and locally owned and operated. The first Trops was located at 12 S. 7th St. in Columbia Missouri for six years.
After it’s first six years the bar had outgrown that location and moved to its current downtown Columbia, MO location at 515 E. Broadway. This location was a lot larger and had space that could be turned into an outside patio area. These two qualities made the location much more appealing to the business and it’s customers.
In the spring of 2001 it was time for Trops to expand again, and so we opened the 3805 S. Providence bar on the south side of Columbia, MO. The south Columbia location also has a patio for outdoor seating. The inside of the second location is much larger than the downtown location, so it can accommodate two pool tables and much more seating.
In 2004 Tropical Liqueurs opened a third bar in downtown Springfield, MO. The Springfield location is very similar to our downtown Columbia location in size and layout. It is in a historical building and also has a patio to accommodate outdoor seating.
