We know it's nearly impossible to complete a list of the greatest dive bars in America, but here is a start. This list is picks from bartenders, sommeliers and chefs.

"The thing that makes these places special is that they are relatively untouched. The feel loved, worn, weathered, and not at all fabricated. The history is real, and you can feel it in the bones of the space."

-- Bartender Brooks Reitz (FIG in Charleston and creator of Jack Rudy Cocktail Co)
