No. 22 – Dorman Street Saloon

Best Dive Bar

Opened in 1908, this Cottage Home bar caters to a loyal following of urban hipsters and neighborhood transplants who flock to it for cheap PBR and the divey digs. Alas, in a recent remodel, sheetrock and shiny new wood floors replaced the place’s patina of age. Still, the addition of an inventive cocktail program is to be applauded. So let’s stop complaining and get to work breaking in the place again.
