Bar opening up in Montreal with pool theme circa 1935 — An odd mix!

I don't get this at all save for the fact that swimmers generally like alcohol.
Club Pelicano is its name, and it should be opening in the next few weeks with a focus on natural wine, local beers, and bar snacks from two excellent Montreal chefs, Marcel Larrea (who spearheads the upstairs kitchen at Tiradito), and Fabrizia Rollo, of Mile End Italian counter Fabrizia
Managing partner David Schmidt tells Eater that while the history of Pelicano’s basement space is unknown, it has a distinctive lowered concrete rectangle that suggests it could have once been a swimming pool. 
“We decided that we would do an ode to the Montreal bathhouses that are turned into cultural centres.”
