The South Pacific Restaurant and Guam Outpost (opened in 1954 by Wayne C. Sit), was a pre-tiki establishment located in the Loop in downtown Chicago.

Incredible neon signage created by the White Way sign company of Chicago.

You would enter this downstairs restaurant through a foyer with a tiki and a splashing fountain. Beaded curtains separated the cocktail lounge from the long dining room. Glass panels in the ceiling lit the room. Lots of greenery and a huge fake tree along one wall.

Lunch and dinner were served 7 days a week.

Closed in 1981.

Wayne C. Sit died in 2006 at the age of 88.

*NOTE: The below photo depicts Sit’s nephew Tom Go in 1962.
