    Interesting find, I'm surprised it was just abandoned there. Am I seeing correctly that it's still watertight, and dry inside? I wonder why the owners didn't at least try to salvage some of the materials.

    Don't read the comments below the content, that section is a cesspool.

      Sounds like it's not too far into the ocean if they're able to have a stairwell going down into it. I would try to go inside!

    I wonder if they just stocked and reheated food while it was a restaurant or if they actually had a kitchen underwater as well? Seems like ventilation and utilities could be problematic, but it's hard to say without seeing how much of the structure is above the water.

    Regardless, I have to imagine there are a lot of hidden fees associated with maintaining an underwater structure. That, combined with the boom and bust cycle that any tourist attraction suffers from, were probably some big factors in why both the restaurant and the club closed if I had to guess.

    I'm not sure what the proprietor was thinking; is an underwater view of the Mediterranean is really the best backdrop for pole dancing?

      It used to be an underwater restaurant. The restaurant closed and it was turned into a strip club.

      I feel many would go just for the uniqueness and coolness factor of it. E: then again, it did close down. So maybe I'm wrong.
