How did this become a pirate bar thread?.



One of Davy Jones' primary characteristics is as a pirate:



Davy Jones’ Locker
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Davy Jones' Locker)

For the villain in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, see Davy Jones (Pirates of the Caribbean). For the fictional place in the third film, see Geography of Pirates of the Caribbean.

Davy Jones’s Locker is an idiom for the bottom of the sea — the resting place of drowned sailors. It is used as an euphemism for death at sea (to be sent to Davy Jones' Locker).[1] Where as the name Davy Jones is a nickname for what would be the devil/saint/god of the seas. The origins of the name are unclear, and many theories have been put forth, including incompetent sailors, a pub owner who kidnapped sailors, or that Davy Jones is another name for the devil – as in, “Devil Jonah”. This nautical superstition was popularized in the 1800s.

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.



Try the Albion Hotel in Miami Beach.

They had great photo albums of some of the more memorable folks in the pool also. It was great going from the beach to the dark cool dungeon-like bar.

There is this place in Oceanside.

I've been in there once, too busy for my taste. It was decorated with lots of skeletons and fake gold (Pirates of the Caribbean kinda look)

The old Brookdale Lodge, just south of Boulder Creek in the Santa Cruz Mountains, had a pool that could be viewed from below in a room called the Mermaid Room where they used to have a mermaid show. A 13 yr old girl drowned there in 1972 forcing the room to be closed. Supposedly the room is haunted by her ghost as well as by another young girl of one of the lodges owners who drowned in the creek (Clear Creek) that runs thru the dining room of the lodge...

The old Hacienda Hotel on Hwy 99 in Fresno had a bar with a pool window and a "mermaid" show. It was called - what else - the Mermaid Room! My parents used to tell me about it but I never found a picture until recently.

There's a Poop Deck in Hermosa Beach...

Closed two weeks ago.

Check out the poly-pop elements evident in this bamboo and carved wood beam:



Anyone been there lately? Or know anything about the Beach Broiler that used to exist nearby?
