The Capital Region’s 5 Best Dive Bars According To You [Ranked]
Like the famous line from the Cheer's TV theme song, "Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name."
That usually means a non-pretentious bar with modest surroundings where salt-of-the-earth locals are friendly, the beer is cold and cheap, the bartenders are a little rude but lovable, the jukebox is loaded with nothing but great tunes, and great pub grub is readily available.
These are all the elements that make up a great dive bar!
We all have that favorite down-home spot here in the Capital Region. It is the one spot you love going that feels like you are hanging out in your basement or garage to simply enjoy some great conversation over your favorite brews. And when you leave after all those beers, you still have some cash left in your wallet!
So in an effort to find more of these places for you to check out locally, we asked our listeners which Capital Region Dive Bars were their favorite to come up with the best ones in the area. We had a lot of great spots that got votes, but these were the 5 dive bars that got mentioned the most. So cheers!
