Top Ten Dive Bars in Broward County

Ah, the dive bar. Some might think the term is an insult, but we mean it as a compliment - an endearment, really. Basically, it refers to any establishment where the cigarette smoke obscures your view of the aging barkeep, fights break out at 2 a.m., the jukebox plays only country or old rock classics, and red-faced patrons stumble in and out according to the after-hours sign on the door. And everyone's favorite slogan is "It's 5 o'clock somewhere." It's that grungy, comfy home away from home where everybody knows your name.
