It this place a gimmick? Yes, but it's a good one. The decor and lighting inside are well done, presenting a nice ambiance for visitors. The large fish tank over the bar is attractive with many tropical fish as well. The "mermaid" comes out to...More

The been selection is a little shy unless you like lighter beers or IPAs, but the highlight is the 'mermaid' who swims in the aquarium above the bar. Very entertaining and a must-see when in Sacramento!

Been a few times.... It's a nice place to bring guests who are visiting.. They have a nice selection of beers and cocktails. Every once in a while, the mermaids swim around. It's amusing. We would go back.
