Providence Dive Bar Madness 2017


What makes a bar a dive bar and what about them is so lovable? They’re places where spirited debates rage, friendships form and laughs abound. They’re local watering holes with character, and living in Rhode Island we’re lucky to have some of the best around. Here is our March Madness-style Sweet 16 of Greater Providence Area dive bars. Who would be in your Final Four (or should we say Final Pour)?  Fill in your own bracket and share a picture of it on Facebook and Instagram, or jump online and tell us the bars we missed.
