Whatever happened that everyone is talking about here is very unfortunate. Any form of intolerance is not okay at all.
Please keep in mind the Otter now has a new name, has new ownership and management, and has almost entirely new employees.
The Otter's Saloon (as it's known now) is welcoming to any and all. Unless you're underage or obviously intoxicated, absolutely everyone is welcome to enjoy the bar, sing karaoke, and have a good time. As the new bouncer, I personally guarantee it.

I used to love going to the U Otter - small bar, karoake, everyone was friendly. Last night my friends and I stopped in. A guy opened the front door for us and we walked in - the bartender about jumped over the bar, looked in my face (he was wearing CREEPY brown contacts that covered his whole eye) and said ""You can't read the sign?"" I didn't know what he was talking about...""the sign that says use the other door???!??!"" I said ""no!"" and he pointed me to leave out the door and go around. We should have let then but it was getting late. We came in I bought one drink and the place was pretty empty for a Saturday night. They have the lights on so bright no one wanted to be in there. Such a shame how bad this place is now.
A friend got beaten at this establishment for doing nothing wrong. He hand his friends were beaten as the clubs security watched and made jokes about the fight.
My friend did nothing other than be there, and talk amongst his friends. They were beaten for ""acting gay"".
Security did nothing but laugh.
Boycott this place.
I love this bar and I'm truly sad at the fact that people are taking out the U of M Student that was attacked outside of the Otter , on the U Otter. It's not the bars fault that there are ignorant people out there. If the bar is locked from what I'm reading and a patron tried to break up the fight. Why should the bar be blacklisted. I think it's sad that someone was hurt and attacked but I feel bad for such a great place. I intend on standing up for a place that has always treated myself and my girlfriend with respect.

If elbowing your way to the bar through Abercrombie & Fitch-clad jocks is your thing, than this tiny establishment is for you. Arrive extremely early for limited seating, or be prepared to stand all night. Karaoke fans will enjoy the decent selection and the enthusiastic crowd. Drinks are of the American variety, so expect something watery.
