Earlier this summer, I heard about a new bar/club called the Shark Bar that was going to open at the Kansas City Power & Light District. Naturally, any place with "shark" in the name piques our interest here at The Sandbar.
One night in July, the manager (I think) of the soon-to-be opening Shark Bar visited The Sandbar. He left plastic cups with the bar's logo along with some of his business cards, and on the back of the cards he graciously gifted us with no waiting in line/no cover. Dave said this guy had started coming to The Sandbar quite a bit, which only added to our curiosity about the Shark Bar.
Well, the place opened on 8/8/08. We haven't been there yet, but the Kansas City Star's publication, Ink, provided a peek inside.
A few things seem to be Sandbar-ish, like the bikini-top-clad servers (apparently, a long time ago, the female bartenders at The Sandbar used to wear bikinis and dance on the bar) and the drinks. Other than that, though, it's definitely a lot more "club" than "dive."
We're anxious to check it out, though, to see how palm trees and beach themed decor mix with black lights and dance floors.
Tell me where this drink name came from……….Lots of beach-inspired beverages, including Pina Coladaburg ($7) with Cruzan coconut rum, dark rum, coconut milk and pineapple juice.
Bring back the bikinis!
i don’t know about the drink name…but the ingredients sound pretty familiar!
i don’t want to see joe in a bikini, sorry.
Pina Coladaburg is the name of a song by a fictional Jimmy Buffet-type character in the movie “Club Dread”. It was done by the Broken Lizard people(the ones who brought you “Supertroopers” and “Beerfest”. The More You Know. TM
Knowledge is POWER!
Oh, by the way… HOLY CRAP! Did you see that hot server in the bikini? Dang Dave, get with it! Granted KC sucks balls but we should road trip over there and pretend like we are in Florida or something. Then we can scoff at their trendy beach bar/club.
Danny wins..tell him what he won…….
