Visitor Tips and News About Wreck Bar Mermaid Show
Great news! The Wreck Bar has re-opened intact through the Yankee Clipper renovation!
Marina (MeduSirena.com) and her Fishtailed Pod can again be seen swimming through the portholes of the legendary Wreck Bar at the newly renamed Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel starting January 29th.
Marina's Swim shows will be Fridays at 6:30 PM, as well as at special events. HUZZAH~ Marina the Mermaid still has a habitat! It's great to see her efforts to preserve such a unique spot in Fort Lauderdale have been rewarded.[Retro-cat, 01/27/2010]
Built in the 1950's, the Yankee Clipper Hotel is an interesting attraction by itself -- located right on Ft. Lauderdale Beach, as it is shaped to resemble a large ship.
Inside, you will find the Wreck Bar, an oasis of nautical kitsch resembling the interior of a ship wreck, complete with aquariums and briny decor throughout. Then there is also an extra bonus- large portholes that look into the hotel's pool from behind the bar. Friday evenings, a live "mermaid" named Marina swims past the portholes, offering patrons a view of a more unusual Florida aquatic species.[Wendy, 05/08/2007]
