Bradley's Spanish Bar, Fitzrovia
A dive bar is typically a small, unglamorous, eclectic, old-style bar with inexpensive drinks and may feature dim lighting, shabby or dated decor, neon beer signs, packaged beer sales, cash-only service, and a local clientele. The prevailing decorative elements are red Naugahyde , wood-toned Formica , and cinder blocks. Dive bars adhere to a minimum level of effort needed to provide guests with drinks; i. They often don't serve food beyond pretzels and snacks. The owner or one of his family members is often working the bar.
Bar trends come and go. But one American drinking institution that will never change is the humble dive bar , that dark, dank, slightly disreputable den of sin where ancient old men and wily young pool sharks come together under the banner of stiff drinks, good company, and a moderate amount of danger. America is packed with holes-in-the-wall ranging from comfortably scuzzy to terrifying.
