Dive Bar of the Month Club

“Strangers are just friends you haven’t had a drink with yet.”

Join us at our next Dive Bar Outing:

December Dive Bar

of the Month

The Alibi

1403 University Ave.

Wednesday, December 26th

6 p.m.


Our next dive bar adventure starts:








The Alibi

To finish out the year, we are headed to a long time favorite – the Alibi in Hillcrest!

The Alibi is dark, friendly and divey. They’ve been around for years and years. They have a full bar, pool tables, and a juke box. And if you go outside and check out the west wall, they have a big “Before I die….” chalkboard where you can proclaim to the world what exactly it is you want to do before you die.

Plan now to join us on Wednesday, December 26th, starting at 6 p.m.

CASH ONLY! The Alibi doesn’t take plastic. Only paper. They’ve got two ATMs on site.

FOOD: The Alibi doesn’t serve food, but you are welcome to bring it in, and you’ve got lots of options around to choose from.

PARKING: The Alibi is in Hillcrest so parking is interesting. You can park in the DMV parking lot which is 3 blocks away, or try your luck on the streets. Best idea? Since it’s the day after Christmas and there will probably be a lot of people out, just take an Uber or a Lyft. We want everyone to be safe.

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.
