Belly Up to the Best Dive Bar in New Jersey! Among Best in U.S.

I didn't come up with the term "Dive Bar" According to Wikipedia "A dive bar is typically a small, unglamorous, eclectic, old-style drinking establishment with inexpensive drinks; it may feature dim lighting, shabby or dated decor, neon beer signs, packaged beer sales, cash-only service, and a local clientele." So I'm not taking credit for this list, of the best "Dive Bars" in America, that credit goes to Mediafeed which listed the best of the "Dives" including right here in the Garden State.

According to Mediafeed the Ivy Inn in Princeton is their choice for New Jersey. "This family-owned and operated joint just a few blocks from Princeton University is the real deal. Serving up cold drinks, live music, trivia nights, a killer juke box and some of the friendliest service around, The Ivy is beloved by a lot of Princetonians. It's worth a stop if you're in town."

In addition, Mediafeed had this to say about "dive bars" in general. "Nearly every city has that one place where locals gather for a good chin wag or just to unwind, and they almost always reflect the true, unvarnished spirit of the community in which they’re located."
