Dive Bars

Dive Bars Hands down, the best way to truly get to know a city is to visit its dive bars. Dives are the places where the locals go after a long day, where there s no pressure to look cute or to impress anyone. Dive bars, in their plucky nature, also have no need to appease anyone or to fit into any category, so it s common to walk into one to find an odd atmosphere that seems to be a blend of a lounge, a goth bar and a billiards bar. In Washington DC, dive bars are the place to find a tired member of congress hiding on the corner barstool drowning his hectic day woes in a cheap cocktail and chatting with the other regulars.
