Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States
The Polynesian Room was in the Yankee Clipper hotel, which opened in 1956. The hotel still stands, but has been re-named the B Ocean Resort and the Polynesian Room closed sometime in the mid-'70s. The Polynesian Room had seating for 300, and a full Polynesian floor show. The architect for the Yankee Clipper also designed the nearby Mai-Kai. The hotel still has a nautical-themed bar, the Wreck Bar, that dates from the same time as the Polynesian Room. The Wreck Bar has a window that looks into the hotel's swimming pool, and originally the hotel had "mermaids" swimming there to entertain guests of the bar. The mermaid shows were discontinued in 1965 but returned in 2006, when Marina and the Aquaticats brought back the shows as an homage to the past.
