    Best dive bars in Pittsburgh

    Dive bars can be polarizing: Either you love their particular brand of cheap, grimy fun or hate it. While the flickering neon signs, $2 shots, and off-key karaoke strike some patrons as endearing, the allure is totally lost on others.

    If grizzled patrons, faded pool tables, and tallboys of beer are your thing, you’re going to want to check out this list. Stacker used data from Foursquare to find the top 25 dive bars in Pittsburgh, Penn. Foursquare’s algorithm takes check-ins, rating signals, category matches, tips, and photo trends into account to come up with the best hole-in-the-wall pubs. Click through the list to see the best dives Pittsburgh has to offer—and find out whether your favorite gin mill made the cut.
