The Entech Innovative Engineering team engineered and fabricated the massive icon for the center bar at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Designed by and furnished under the direction of The McBride Co., the restaurant features a giant spinning hurricane with a large tequila bottle at its core for us to fabricate.
The tequila bottle descends out of the rotating hurricane clouds to dispense gallons of “tequila” into a huge blender. The effect is topped-off with misty smoke, confetti and shark fins that pop out of the bands of the hurricane.
Size, engineering, specialty metals, fiberglass, controls systems, scenic paint – this iconic feature has it all and all of it was completed in just 68 days! We were up to the challenge and it was a lot of fun to design and build.
