Find. Eat. Drink.'s Great Dive Bars Across America

Posted: 09/13/11 03:04 PM ET

"The thing that makes these places special is that they are relatively untouched. The feel loved, worn, weathered, and not at all fabricated. The history is real, and you can feel it in the bones of the space."

-- Bartender Brooks Reitz (FIG in Charleston and creator of Jack Rudy Cocktail Co)

Pictured is the Dublin House Tap Room, recommended by bartender Brian Bartels (Fedora in NY) and sommelier Levi Dalton (Bar Boulud in NY).
