There are not one but two dive bars in my neighborhood well within walking distance. They are small and Spartan, if you know what that means. So it's only you and what you bring to the bar that makes it an enjoyable and intoxicating experience. It's where everyone knows your name and you are always welcome.
Don't forget the dank.
Yes, very dank. Dank is the key. Dank dank and more dank with an aerosol spritz every 20min of Pinesol mist. You know then that you have finally made it. You are no longer lounging on the sidewalk but have found a cushy bar stool out of the sun. The room may even have a/c!

If I can't smell the piss and mildew from a block away it ain't a dive bar and I ain't going in.

Don't forget the smell of cigarette smoke and despair. There is always the distinct odor of despair.

I think you are mistaken there. That smell is hope. Hope that no matter how far from grace you fall with the family and the drys, there will be sanctuary. A sweet sense of hope that when all else in your life is a complete cataclysm, the Dive will welcome you with no judgment.

That is beautiful. I wonder if I can find someone to embroidery that on a pillow for me.

First off, I also want something embroidered with that whether it is a pillow or a wall hanging thingy. Maybe even a quilt? Undies?

Secondly, if the smell is indeed "hope", I may not agree if it is combined with piss, smoke, and mildew...sounds kinda despair-ey.

Throw in a rotten carcass smell and we have a winner!

My best buddy`s sister once had a boyfriend who got paid to clear (not clean) flats where old people died in. I once helped my friend get an old wardrobe from one of these. That smell is strangely sweet actually, like rotting candy

Yes, was at my local dive bar this afternoon for 3.5hrs of serious drinking. It worked for me. It was a successful Friday happy hour! Cheers!

This club is quickly trending as the hippest late nite club in Hollywood. It's a '70's themed place with people dressing in vintage clothes.

Not from what I hear. It's doing business out the wazoo. If you go at typical city cocktail hour about 10pm, expect a 90min. wait in line. People do it. It's the hip place to be.

That was hilarious...and pretty spot on. I've watched Jon Taffer many a time. I like in the beginning the guy was wearing the MDM Fez with some Mardi Gras beads. HA!
