Dive Bar of the Month Club

Join us at our next Dive Bar Outing:


3537 5th Avenue, Hillcrest

Wednesday, March 28

Starting at 6 p.m.

Our next dive bar adventure starts:








Nunu's Cocktail Lounge

This month we are celebrating the 8-year anniversary of the Dive Bar of the Month Club. 8 years ago, the first meeting for Dive Bar of the Month took place at Nunu’s in Hillcrest. 9 people attended and we had a blast! So we’re going back!

Join us on Wednesday, March 28th starting at 6 p.m. as we go back to Nunu’s to enjoy some Dive Bar fun. (This time we hope there will be more than just 9 people.)

Nunu’s is a throwback bar if there ever was one. It’s got tuck and roll (orange!) upholstery on the booths. The bar itself is padded (so nice to lean on). They have a full bar with great prices on everything. They have carpet on the wall, a great jukebox and a kitchen in the back (order at the window). It’s small, it’s dark, and it’s friendly. What’s not to love?

Plan now to celebrate our 8th Anniversary with us! Bring yourselves, your friends, and your sense of of adventure!

Nunu’s takes Cash or Credit

PARKING: Nunu’s is in Hillcrest where parking is limited. It’s best to Uber or Lyft. Otherwise, it’s all street parking.

FOOD: Nunu’s has a kitchen with burgers and bar food to enjoy.

T-SHIRTS: We have a limited number of Dive Bar of the Month T-shirts still available. We will have some with us that night. $15/shirt.

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.
