Wreck Bar Mermaid Show

The only mermaid burlesque show in the US! Beautiful historic Wreck Bar, total nautical theme you don't see much any more. Medusirena is the hostess mermaid with the mostest. She is the lead of the four mermaids that put on an hour show Fridays, and I think Saturdays, at 8:30 pm. Doors open at 6:30 for dinner before the show. $45 credit to food and drinks per person. Delicious food prepared in house by the Naked Bar Restaurant.

We went last Friday for my birthday. DJ, great bartenders, service and great personalities and extremely entertained. Thursday night they have a Merman show. Love the mermaids! No hoses, no nose clips, highly recommend!

The Wreck Bar is in what is now the B Ocean Hotel. The bar opens at 5:30, and we weren't able to go in, but you can see everything -- all the windows with swimmer's legs kicking about in the pool...funny! It's almost like a preserved museum: the hotel has been renovated and is ultra-modern and then there's this old wooden ship-looking wall with a door, and it's all old wood and nautical kitsch inside. Love it.

Wreck Bar Mermaid Show

The mermaids are great and the hotel and the themed bar itself is just as funky and fun. Six big windows look out into the hotel's pool and that's where the mermaids appear at 6:30 every Friday and Saturday evening. The bartender told me that since the pool is also open to hotel guests he often sees other very interesting things that go on in the pool! The carved rail on the bar has had initials carved into it since it was built in 1956, along with the rest of the Yankee Clipper Hotel.

A scene from the 1999 film "Analyze This" (with Billy Crystal and Robert DeNiro) was filmed in the bar, as mermaids swam in the background.

Wreck Bar Mermaid Show

Great news! The Wreck Bar has re-opened intact through the Yankee Clipper renovation!

Marina ( 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.
