The bar was architect Alfred Arribas, a great friend of Javier Mariscal, who was commissioned to do something really original. This had the idea of playing with the name of the establishment and make a shrimp that is actually a crayfish. Aided by the artist Manuel Martín faller, Marshal succeeded in achieving a great visual attraction on the pier when the wood became in 1987 the first reform directed by Manuel de Solà-Morales, who eliminated former sheds. Crayfish ownership was in dispute between the owner of the premises and the tenant. Once cleared, it is now established that the crayfish Marshal ceded to the city. In December 2004 it was restored. Manuel Martin died in May 2005, when the crayfish had regained its original good looks.
