Valentine’s, Schmalentine’s! Whether you’re happily single and ready to mingle, or want to enjoy a low key evening out on the town without being surrounded by couples all night, Yelp’s got you covered!
To celebrate Anti-Valentine’s Day, we’ve pulled together the Top 100 Dive Bars in the U.S., which includes bars with everything from karaoke and pool tables to jukeboxes and arcade games. If you’re looking for some fun on February 14th, but want to avoid restaurants with a prix fixe menu and pink balloons, this list offers some inspiration for a lively (and cheap!) evening out.
Suzie Wong’s Hideaway in Honolulu, HI tops this year’s list as the best dive, with Yelpers loving the local beer selection and casual, tiki-themed ambiance. Other highlights on the list? A famed Voodoo Daiquiri in New Orleans (#12), a haunted bar with live jazz in Memphis (#26), and a vegan dive bar and music venue in Oregon (#84).

Remember, we only know how good a spot is if people take the time to review it, so share your thoughts on Yelp, and maybe your favorites will be on next year’s list!
Methodology: To determine Yelp’s Top 100 Dive Bars for 2020, we identified dive bars on Yelp between January 1, 2019 and January 14, 2020 and ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews. When available, all businesses on this list have a passing health score or a score greater than a C/70 as of January 14, 2020.
