On the outside, dive bars may seem dodgy and probably not the sort of place you would ever want your folks catching you and your mates at. Tucked away in some of the tiniest cracks, these neighbourhood joints are often hard to find.

These are the spots where you can expect to chit chat with bartenders till the cows come home, occasionally witness some drunk-driven drama or simply get sloshed without being judged. As much as we love our bespoke cocktail bars, it’s time to give those a miss because dive bars are where the fun is at.

One type of beer that we will never be able to get enough of is craft beer. Aside from the personalised touch to the drink, there is an emphasis on traditional brewing methods which contributes towards better flavours and standard of the beer, as opposed to generic ones that you can pull off the shelf at the supermarket.
