Now this would be a magical way to enjoy a meal.

The Rise of Professional Mermaids

While the legend of the mermaid has been around for centuries, the popularity of the mythical mermaid took on a life of its own ever since Disney's The Little Mermaid came out in 1989.  It makes sense that the generation that grew up with Ariel would also be the generation to help make professional mermaiding an actual job.


In recent years we've seen a trend of professional mermaids skyrocket. Professional mermaids are people who not only dress up like a mermaid but they are expert swimmers with their mermaid tail and monofin and trained to entertain people while being underwater.   According to Aqua Mermaid, professional mermaids are a fun way to bring a unique kind of entertainment to a party or event.  In this case they're bringing a unique kind of entertainment to a restaurant in Tennessee.

Aquarium is a restaurant in the Opry Mills Mall that is worth the visit on its own because it makes you feel like you're literally dining inside of an aquarium.   While eating food you're surrounded by thousands of gallons of water and hundreds of fish and underwater species.  Now you can also add mermaids to that list too!
