    36 Diviest Dive Bars in Tampa Bay

    What’s a dive bar? It’s an interesting question and definitely up for interpretation.  We like to think of a dive bar as a place where locals go to get a drink or a few. Simple as that.  This list was compiled by our fans.  Do you think we should add one?  Let us know in the comments and tag your squad to back you up.  We only add new spots that multiple people confirm as a dive bar.
