September Dive Bar of the Month








Join us at the Whistle Stop Bar!

For September we are heading to one of our favorite bars: The Whistle Stop Bar in South Park!

Join us on Wednesday, September 22nd starting at 6 p.m. as we take Dive Bar of the Month to the Whistle Stop.

The Whistle Stop is a railroad-themed Dive Bar with a full bar serving great cocktails, as well as an expanded beer and wine list (thank you Covid!)

There’s an old-school jukebox, pool table, smoking patio, and a new streetlet that lets you take in the fun that is South Park.

Plan now to join us as we head to the Whistle Stop Bar!


Parking: It’s all street parking. Your best (and safest) bet is an Uber or Lyft.

Food: They don’t serve any. It’s a Dive, but you are welcome to bring food in from any of the places nearby.

Money: Cash or Credit works just fine!

Some of our recent bars

It’s a tradition to get our bartenders to hold our sign. Here’s where we’ve recently been.

We’re always open to hearing about bars we haven’t visited. Drop us a line if there is someplace you think we should check out.
