For centuries wits, writers, artists, and ne’er-do-wells have gathered to drink and amuse each other. For Shakespeare’s crowd (think Ben Jonson, John Donne, John Fletcher, Francis Beaumont and others) the Mermaid Tavern was THE pub. They called themselves the Fraternity of Sireniacal Gentlemen, and they fondly mention this famed drinking establishment in their plays and poems. The legacy of The Mermaid and its denizens inspired leagues of other literary greats to form their own coteries of bantering friends.

This Dive Bar(d) t-shirt is everything you've dreamed of and more. It feels soft and lightweight, with the right amount of stretch. It's comfortable and flattering for all.
