How You Can Tell It’s a Great Dive Bar

You know it’s a dive bar when the brightest thing in the room is the pool table, but the patrons are well lit!

You know it’s a dive bar when today’s soup is TEQUILA!

You know it’s a dive bar when today’s drink special is $1 PBR cans.

If there are no “colorful” locals, it is not a dive bar.

If the barmaid doesn’t call you “sweetie”, it may not be a dive bar.

If there is nothing in a big jar that is pink, red or purple, it may not be a dive bar.

If everything in the bathroom works and there are no holes in the wall, it may not be a dive bar.

From the panhandle to the Keys, Florida has some of the best dive bars in the country. We are here to share some of those! Places like Flora-bama that is part in Florida and part in Alabama. We call it a 5000-seat dive bar! Then, about as far south as you can go is The Bull in Key West. Back north again is Harry’s Bar in Carrabelle, Florida – you have probably never heard of Carrabelle or Harry’s! Then in the town of Crystal River, you will find a classic dive bar called Norton’s. This is where the local fishermen hang. If you are ever in Islamorada, there is a place owned by a former Pittsburg Steeler called The Oceanview Inn. Not sure we know what ocean view it is – we must not drink enough to see an ocean!
