Sip 'n' Dip Lounge, Great Falls, Montana
The Sip 'n' Dip Lounge
Located in the O'Haire Motor Lounge in Great Falls Montana, the Sip 'n' Dip Lounge is a Tiki bar with a twist. The lounge features a glass wall behind the bar that allows you to watch swimmers in the hotel's swimming pool and daily mermaid shows mean you can live out your Little Mermaid fantasies. The bar opened in 1962 and the mermaids were added in 1995 to up the "fun factor". Fun fact: Daryl Hannah once donned a tail and swam here.
The menu features an array of tropical concoctions, replete with little umbrellas, Montana microbrews, and fishbowl cocktails. There's a full food menu including something called Hog Heaven which is an artery-clogging combination pulled pork, macaroni and cheese, and bacon bits. Sip 'n' Dip hosts a Mermaid Brunch every other Sunday from 10 am - 2 pm.
If you're more the outdoorsy type, in that you like getting drunk on patios, Sip 'n' Dip has an outdoor patio with a full bar that's open from June through September.
The kitschy bar is open Sunday 11:30 am to midnight, Monday 11:30 am to midnight, and Tuesday – Saturday 11:30 am to 2:00 am. Mermaid hours vary but typically start at 6 pm. Wednesdays through Fridays feature live piano bar entertainment by "Piano Pat" Spoonheim starting at 9:30 pm.
