Best Dive Bar


3117 Brereton St., Polish Hill

This dark, narrow bar is a favorite of those in search of cheap drinks and no-nonsense service. (Most regulars will pledge their undying love to long-time bartender Tim Quinlan.) Head to the back room for live music, which could be a touring punk band or local noise artists (or both).
