The Sip n Dip is in Great Falls Montana, at the O'Haire Motor Inn. Sounds glamorous, doesn't it? But if you're a fan of Tiki Bars, mid-century kitsch, and mermaids, this is the place for you!

Why is the Sip n Dip a Must-See?

GQ Magazine named it one of their Top-10 bars in the world, and the #1 bar worth flying for. What's the big deal? Where else are there mermaids swimming behind the bar, just between the vodka, rum, and bitters? The Sip n Dip lounge has a window looking into the mermaids natural habitat, the O'Haire Motor Inn swimming pool. The fin-tailed beauties can see inside, and they'll pose for pics. You can even get a selfie with them.
