This super cool and comfortable spot gets its name from a captured Union ship scuttled by Confederate forces off the coast of Savannah in 1864 to prevent its return to the North, but no one was sad to see it go, as seaman lore held that the ship had always been cursed. It had been captured off the Ossabaw Sound earlier that summer and with it came its whispered tales of misfortune and frequent appearances of sailor superstitions indicating disaster. It’s because of this mysterious and exciting history that staff invites you to “come aboard” the Water Witch and “get sunk” by their menu of crafted tropical cocktails. I’m a fan of the Ruby’s Jewel!
Owner Brigitte Harley moved to Savannah from New York City in 2010. Brigitte’s career as an attorney and finance executive left her wanting a creative outlet, which led to the opening of Water Witch in 2020. Thinking about a business that would fit in well with the Savannah culture and with her personal interests, a modern tiki bar fit the bill. The Starland District is edgy and filled with creativity which makes it the perfect home for Water Witch.
