To find the best dive bar in every state, we looked at Yelp reviews and ratings from local publications. Of course we also checked in with locals who know and love these dusty, loveable, come-as-you-are watering holes. The Nick in Birmingham, Alabama, has been around for more than 30 years, and a fair share of iconic bands have played here. Patrick M. The Salty Dawg was one of the first cabins built in the town and has served as a post office, a railroad station, a grocery store and a coal mining office.

Bradley's Spanish Bar, Fitzrovia
From traditional boozers and award-winning craft beer dens, to cutting-edge cocktail hideouts and pricey hotel bars, London has just about every type of drinking spot you can imagine. But for the times when you just want late entry, plentiful booze, loud music and good times and maybe a sticky floor or two , here's a handy list of the best dive bars in London. Slim Jim's plays the part of the quintessential London dive bar, with red leather bar stools, exposed brick and a lot of bourbon. Maybe it's a bit too slick to get proper down 'n' dirty — it is on Islington's Upper Street after all. But it's open late, there's a strict 'no suits' door policy, live music and DJs are a regular, plus the rock and roll jukebox free on Mondays is loaded with all the classics you need to get hips swinging and feet stomping. This tiddly red and yellow fronted bar has pride of place near Oxford Street, yet still manages to fly a bit under the radar — apart from on long summer days when punters spill onto the street gaily clutching their draught and bottled beers.
