Boston has got so much more going for it than tea parties. Indeed, as one of the oldest cities in the US, it is home to some of the best dive bars in the country.

I own Philadelphia's Best Dive Bars, and when I discovered Luke O'Neil had written a Boston version, I decided to purchase it even though I rarely visit Boston nor drink alcohol. I favor his less traditionally journalistic endeavors, of which Boston's Best Dive Bars is a prime example. O'Neil's writing creates an entertaining book despite my ignorance of Boston and my lack of desire to visit most of the spots described

Boston's best dive bars-in all their grungy glory! It wasn't so long ago that finding a dive bar in greater Boston . And good luck trying to find more than a handful of dives in Boston proper, as it's just too expensive to operate a no frills joint with real estate prices being what they are now.

Boston's best dive bars-in all their grungy glory! It wasn't so long ago that finding a dive bar in greater Boston was as simple as walking down the street. For decades, dive bars provided the backbone of the city's drinking culture, and served as an easy shorthand for Boston's image in the country at large (for better or worse). However, things have changed over the past decade. Still, while the dive bar may be an endangered species, all hope isn't lost yet.

The dive bar series has a long and consistent selling history This book will appeal both to tourists who come to Boston looking to drink off the beaten path as well as locals who want to explore the dive bar scene in depth. Will appeal strongly to Boston's college age population.

If you want to avoid the tourist traps listed in those "other" bar guides and find out where real Bostonians do their drinking, then this is the book for you. Luke O'Neil has been covering arts and nightlife in Boston for ten years.

Luke O’Neil profiles 90 divey outposts through the eyes of the people who love them. Between interviews with owners and regulars, and descriptions as raw as the actual bars ( There’s no door on the shitter, he writes, which is pretty much universal dive speak for ‘We’re sick of dudes blasting rails in here’ ), O’Neil anatomizes the dive bar itself, and in turn, the old-school locals who still drink inside them.

It wasn't so long ago that finding a dive bar in greater Boston was as simple as walking down the street. For decades, dive bars provided the backbone of the city's drinking culture, and served as an easy shorthand for Boston's image in the country at large (for better or worse). However, things have changed over the past decade. For example, Charlestown, at one point home to dozens of blue collar watering holes, now boasts a grand total of two. And good luck trying to find more than a handful of dives in Boston proper, as it's just too expensive to operate a no frills joint with real estate prices being what they are now. Still, while the dive bar may be an endangered species, all hope isn't lost yet.Boston's Best Dive Bars: Drinking and Diving in Beantown, uncovers ninety of the best dive temples in the city, with opinionated reviews that verge between the hilarious and the downright heartbreaking. From Ace's High in South Boston, to Whitney's Cafe in Harvard Square, with stops in Somerville, Roslindale, Eastie and everything in between, this is the Boston drinker's guide to the worst bar in your neighborhood, which also happens to be the best bar in your neighborhood. For anyone who's ever sipped cheap whiskey out of a plastic cup under a mounted elk head while scratching lottery tickets, or tossed darts and snacked on stale popcorn with a pack of slumming hipsters, this is the book for you.

I am not sure if these "Best Dive Bars" books are meant to be serious travel guides or simply lighthearted insight into local neighborhoods and culture (or both). I believe the books lean towards the latter, which, luckily, I prefer. I own Philadelphia's Best Dive Bars, and when I discovered Luke O'Neil had written a Boston version, I decided to purchase it even though I rarely visit Boston nor drink alcohol. O'Neil is a pretty prolific freelance author for both print magazines and websites. I favor his less traditionally journalistic endeavors, of which Boston's Best Dive Bars is a prime example. O'Neil's writing creates an entertaining book despite my ignorance of Boston and my lack of desire to visit most of the spots described. The author's love of a good dive bar shines though, and he takes care to differentiate between unpretentious establishments and those that are just dirty and/or dangerous. If you do plan on using Boston's Best Dive Bars as a guidebook, be aware some of the bars have recently fallen victim to gentrification.

An excellent review of the biggest dumps in the city. Dive bars but the most fun joints if you are going to imbibe. I have worked in several of these joints, including the Tam, and I can tell you the joints are summed up correctly. Anyone who puts the Tam as the biggest Dive in the city know what he is talking about.

Good book but it's a little dated.Quite a few of the bars are out of business.
