Back when I was in the Navy, in '87 we pulled into Pearl Harbor for some liberty leave. I remember a bar at the Reef Hotel called Davy Jones Locker that was at basement level and had windows behind the bar that looked into the swimming pool. I remember a similar bar/pool in the movie Where the Boys Are that was supposed to be in Ft. Lauderdale, but I don't know of any other places having such a cool attraction. Are there other bars out there like that in the world? It has always seemed to me to be a great idea for a Las Vegas casino bar - especially with bikini styles of today!

Pirate Bar looks awesome. Have you ever tried the HMS Bounty on Wilshire, just west of Vermont?

Here's an odd one that sticks out in my mind for some reason - there was this place in Donegal, Ireland called the "Schooner Bar" - where the main eating/drinking area was the cargo hold of the ship (half barrel tables and chairs, bent ceilings, the whole deal - it really looked like a cargo hold!) and the main bar area was the cockpit/main deck. It was a great place to put back a few pints and listen to traditional music.

ahhh...ireland.

someone should open a place called the Poop deck,

but then again, nobody would probably want to go there.

Yes, I have.
Nautical, but not pirate.
Very dark.
Nice red booths.
A perfect place to go for lunch with the co-worker you are having an affair with.

How did this become a pirate bar thread? I think Okolehao was mostly asking about subterranean bars with windows looking into an adjoining pool, as that was the main feature of Davy Jones Locker. You'd think there would be something like this in Vegas, but I've never heard of it.
