Dive bars offer more than budget drinks and a small cast of colorful regulars. These low-key establishments also offer respite from the daily grind and crowds who often frequent the city’s trendier (and overpopulated) watering holes. It’s hard to beat a dive bar on some nights. Sometimes all one really wants is to relax solo with a good book or with a group of good friends and to escape the frenetic pace of life with loaded nachos and wings paired with a cold beer, rum and Coke, or a well shot.
