It took five years for Dive! to go under. And a location in Vegas (and a franchise in Barcelona) had to open first. But eventually the restaurant — a creation of director Steven Spielerg, owned in part by producer Jeffrey Katzenberg — did fail.
This goofy, submarine-themed restaurant served nautically-themed fare and "gourmet" subs — Spielberg's inspiration, because, supposedly, he couldn't find anyone to make a sandwich — in an enivronment with computer "underwater" special effects, catwalks, exposed conduits, gauges, throttles, control panels, and "dives" every half-hour where sirens and lights go off while commands of "Dive!" echo around the dining room.
