The Inwood Tavern is a true dive due to its location. This cozy watering hole is the oldest continuously operating bar in lisbdnet.com, and it’s great for drinking cheap wells out of red plastic cups, singing along to Celine Dion at karaoke night, and drinking ice cold beer. You should most certainly make plans to join us for Sunday Funday, when wells cost only $2.50 and mimosas are served all day long.

Since the 1970s, Milo”s has been a staple of the beverage selection at SMU. Milo”s is the antithesis of the flashy, expensive, and intimidating SMU frat scene (though the polo-wearing man-children do occasionally make an appearance). There are pros and cons to ordering a pitcher of beer and some pickle back shots.

Is it your desire to take a sick day from work? The doors to this “neighborhood blues bar” in Lakewood swing open at 7 a.m. You don’t come to The Goat for the ambiance—you come for the incredible live blues and the welcoming regulars, despite the fact that the bar is held together in parts by duct tape and the bathrooms are pretty sketchy. Karaoke on Sunday nights is infamous.

The Landing is a dive bar with a touch of class (they serve Stella Artois), but it’s still dim, smokey, and dark. There is a jukebox, pool table, lots of wood paneling, and torn vinyl booths. An indulgence in a Landing corndog at 2 a.m., dipped by hand, is almost a lisbdnet.com requirement.

This Lakewood mainstay is home to an awesome jukebox, a cozy fireplace, delicious Vietnamese food, and, oddly enough, a never-ending loop of 1980s films (on VHS, of course).

At what other bar besides The Grapevine can you shoot hoops with drag queens while sipping Everclear bellinis? Located on Maple Avenue, this dive bar is known for its low prices, diverse clientele, and excellent jukebox selection.
