But will there be a pool for the mermaids?
California Family Fitness has announced that it will open a new health club on K Street the week of April 28. The club will stand next to Dive Bar – also known as the “mermaid bar” – along a stretch of restaurants and bars on the 1000 block of K Street.
Randy Karr, president of California Family Fitness, said “this location will be a great addition to the downtown community.”
City officials have sought to attract more amenities to downtown in an attempt to lure residential development.
Never miss a local story.
The City Council approved the lease for Cal Fit in 2012. The property was part of an agreement in 2009 that dedicated $5.4 million in redevelopment money for the revamping of four properties on K Street.
The five-level gym will include fitness equipment and classes, a rooftop basketball court and lounge, a sauna, steam room and smoothie bar.
