Dive Bar is a must for Sac nightlife, but beware gentleman! They will check to see that you are wearing proper footwear (for guys) even though the mermaids don’t have shoes! Probably the same for all the downtown Sacramento clubs, so do note that this...More

An interesting bar with a 40 ft tank over the bar that has mermaids swimming with the fish. Great bar service, average wine chiices, no food.

It’s a “full bar” (several types of hard liquor + mixers) with a limited selection of beer on tap and wine. Also kind of a mini night club. Main feature is the live mermaid performer who swims in a large aquarium. On... More
