Dive Bars in Washington DC

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.
