A very popular nightclub in the Fairbanks area, amongst the tourists and the UAF college students. This is a very lively place with loud music blaring through the night. A couple of pool tables around the front deck are an add on. The smoking area is separated from the front and is made of patios mostly. The Alaskan and craft beers are of great quality. And there is a fair variety of liquors.The staff members are friendly, the seating arrangement is comfortable and the service is quick. Marlin is a dream destination for party lovers.

Marlin Reviews & Ratings
Karaoke with Cherie was Awesome, everyone was laid back no bougee or snobbish vibes. Great well rounded music selection and the bartender (Gretchen) I believe took care of the whole house, didn’t miss a beat. I will be back❣️
This is where you go for real fun and fine friends, not a pickup place. If you meet someone you better treat them like they might be your best friend for life and then go home together. Live music every Friday & Saturday and cherieoke Thursdays & Sundays run by the legendary Cherie Bowman ♡ she's allot of people's best friend cause she's sexy, sassy, and raunchy and has the most comforting mom hugs♡ I feel swaddled by her aura.
Was a great band the night I went. A fun place for a good time.
It is a laid back bar where you can be comfortable either alone, or with friends.
I love the Marlin, it's mostly the only place in town where I can sit and have a drink in tranquility. It literally reminds me of the intro song of Cheers. Everyone is so friendly and the employees treat you like family. So if your comfortable in a the dive bar life the Marlin is the place to go.
