Going to be in town either this coming weekend or the next. Was told of a place by relatives called Mermaids. Anyone have any information?

The place on some nights has a diversified crowd. I have never seen any problems there. Good security, drinks are a little high, but yet they are good. They have a great DJ....the play all kinds of different music. If you like to dance this is the place to be while you are in Hiawassee. Another great thing is they do not allow smoking inside, but you can come and go in and out if you happen to be a smoker. Dress code, no holes in jeans for men, and I do not think they have one for women, at least it does not look that way to me when I have been there. There is a $5.00 cover charge. Hope this helps, have a great time if you go

Agree, it is a fun place, we need more bars around town. I heard a new bar is going up next to the new car wash/drive thru Beer store in town. I believe RR is building it. Wonderful news, just what we need. Can anyone verify this ?

Can't happen, unless it's part of a "resort" or a "bottle club," like the VFW.

The place has the reputation for drugs. There is another link here about all of that. Got a lot of bad publicity for putting up portapotties instead of real restrooms. We go to the club in Murphy NC about 20 minutes away. It is bigger, cleaner and has a better crowd. Watch out of DUI when you go to Mermaids. The cops watch the road leaving it.

I would agree to the port a potties, although they still have the restrooms inside, it just helps the overflow. Most of the guys use the porta potties, so they like to use the restroom outside, so they should feel right at home. Going to Murphy is a lot farther, and the Police watch that place to. At least you have the option for a Taxi at Mermaids, not sure if they have that service in Murphy as of yet. But I am sure if someone is smart they will have them over there as well.

They put in portapotties so they can recycle the beer, times are tough. I saw one of the potties behind the bar with a keg tap on it.

I can tell you most locals do not patronize that bar or any of the restaurants in the resort. The ones that do are looking for trouble or to make a buy. The food is horrible and the service is worse.

The place could stay open for several reasons.
1. laundering money
2. The banks simply have not called the note yet
3. Someone is waiting for enough time to pass after transferring assets to file bankruptcy
4. Someone has a lot of money but no sense
5. Someone likes the spotlight to much
6. None of the above
What is obvious is that, it is not staying open because it is making money.
