'Goodbye for now...': Wet Willie's not renewing lease in Columbia

The company announced on Facebook that it hopes to open another location in the Columbia area if possible.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Fifteen years are about to come to an end for a local establishment known for its ice-cold daiquiris.

Wet Willie's Columbia announced that it would be closing its location on Gervais Street after recently deciding not to renew its lease. And while this is definitely the end for the current Vista location, it may not be the final chapter for Wet Willie's in the Midlands.

"We hope to come back and open in a new location in Columbia as you all have been so good to us over the years," the location said on its Facebook page. "Stay tuned!"

The page added that Sunday is its last night and food will be limited.

"Thank you all for being such wonderful friends and guests," the announcement concluded.

According to the company's website, two other South Carolina locations remain - one in Beaufort and another in Myrtle Beach.
