“Rollicking nightspot where mermaid-costumed women swim in water tanks above the bar.”

tep off the streets of Sacramento and into the tranquil ambiance of Dive Bar. In direct contrast to its name, Dive Bar is a haven of cool and class in the middle of one of the nation's most eclectic cities. Dive Bar's approachability and charm are dedicated to vintage good times. The huge aquarium above the bar has a beautiful live mermaid or merman making an occasional appearance, a dramatic example of a play on words. After basking in all the glory of the large chandeliers above, let one of the plush leather high back chairs wrap around you and your party so you can enjoy a moment of serenity after a busy work day or after dinner. From serving specialty cocktails to draft beers, Dive Bar's knowledgeable staff will not discriminate. A typical dive bar denotes a few things in ones mind: no frills, approachable, slightly dangerous, and a leftover relic from another era.

This bar is overrated. It's a bland setting and a tight squeeze to get into when the crowds start pouring in. They are trying to make it more of a lounge, but the seating is so limited that you are forced to stand up the entire time with your back against a wall to allow other people to move around. I thought it would be themed to the ocean or something along those lines, but it's just a bar with the fish tank directly above, which quite frankly makes it far more difficult to get a drink since everyone is facing the show and not paying attention to people trying to get in line.

The tank itself is amazing, I will give it that. The actresses are super dedicated and authentic looking. The show lasts a few minutes though and then you are just in a bar with an empty fish tank above it.

My suggestion is to buy one drink, see a mermaid and take a photo, then move on to other things. That's what it has to offer.

I work around the corner from this bar. My suggestion is to walk in and see it then go to the pizza place next door to see the big rig coming out of the wall. If you want great vegetarian walk across the street to Mothers for some of the best I’ve ever had.
