Never has a place been more accurately named than this one. From the Homewood suites it’s less than a half mile walk. No idea where people find parking around here. The place looks like something out of a Bukowski novel. Cheap wood paneling, bathroom walls covered with graffiti, an entrance bordering a tunnel lined with junkies. But what an amazing tap list. Lots of offerings from NE mainstays such as Hill Farmstead, Trillium, and Honest Weight. The food truck in the back was fucking serving comfort food with a Cajun twist. The place is cash only but the prices considering the quality and the rarity of the beer they sell are amazing. I will be back.
We had a little trouble finding the Dive Bar and asked some likely looking locals for directions. "Are you looking for a dive or the Dive?" they said. At that point we spotted it just a little further up the street. And indeed it is a dive but it was fun. I seem to remember there’s an old fashioned diving suit, complete with spherical helmet, behind the bar but I may be imagining that bit.

It really is a dive bar, in the good sense. Good music, friendly staff, low prices. The only thing was, their beer list was way better than most dive bars I’ve been to. Oh, and they had a garden in the back.
Found this place when visiting Worcester during The Festival. Great find, cool outdoor patio and superb selection of beers from Hillstead Farm, Freigeist and other brewers featured during The Festival.
really liked the place. dark, kind of dirty likeit should be. Edward on draft gives it an automatic 15. Really nice outdoor patio. Local MA drafts featured like Pretty things, & High & Mighty. Would hang her often if i lived in the area
