Sharkees is known as the dirty college bar in Santa Barbara. Thursday night is college night downtown and the bars are runnover by 20-23 year olds. Sharkees has great drink specials ($1 well drinks) and they of course have the infamous "bucket" which is a large bucket filled with different fruit juices and different alcohols. There are about 5 different types of buckets, but be careful, "bucket nights" can get a little crazy. Sharkees is known for having the swimming mermaid behind the bar on thursdays and saturdays. Many of my friends have swam and it is a great job and entertaining to watch! Good travels!
