"Synonymous with a deep-sea search for a new experience," the Octopus Bar gets on the Bait Shop/Anchors Down/Grog/etc. bandwagon with "Jacques Cousteau inspired journals, diagrams and illustrations, netting, maps, vintage sails, salvaged wood and diffused light formed by previously forgotten pieces worn by the elements." Also: small plates from a former 50 North chef.
