Photos: A Rock N' Roll Bar With A 5000 Gallon Fish Tank Opens In DTLA
Embracing literally both the highs and lows of downtown Los Angeles, there's a new rock n' roll bar and lounge nestled in the same downtown building as Perch (one of our favorite rooftop bars in L.A. ) that opens today. But instead of high up on the rooftop, this one goes down into the basement—and there's a massive 5,500 gallon fish tank that wraps around the space above the bar.
LAist visited Mrs. Fish on Thursday night for a soft opening. It's equal parts a space for live music and a place for small bites and craft cocktails. And it's owned by the creator of Perch.
We enter the bar and find ourselves walking through a metal-like tunnel down a staircase with an ornate, wrought-iron banister. Although this may seem like something that would have been an original vintage design of the historic Pershing Square Building that it's housed in, the bannister was created specifically for the bar. This is just a first glimpse at the intricate details throughout Mrs. Fish. The basement once was home to a restaurant in the 1920s, and Mrs. Fish's owner took three years to heavily remodel the space.
