Everyone has a tiny, hole-in-the-wall bar they've been to and fell in love with. Even if you were only there once, you remember it as one of the more fun times you had while out with friends. From the cheap drinks & food, to nice live music in an intimate setting, dive bars are usually a good time.

We found 5 dive bars right here in South Jersey that you can check out on July 7, National Dive Bar Day!

    Flip Flopz

    WHERE: 106 W Spruce Ave, N. Wildwood

    The night scene is great with live music and lots to drink. It's a great place to hangout and have some fun! Outdoor bars are always the most fun. So slide on down for happy hour or come for dinner and stay for the night life.

    Ship N Shore

    WHERE: 434 Montgomery Ave, Wildwood

    With 3.5/5 stars on Yelp, we think this counts as a pretty good dive bar. With daily dine-in specials, you can bet this will fit everyone's budget. Food is good, drinks are cold, and the only thing missing is you.

    Ducktown Tavern and Liquors

    WHERE: 2400 Atlantic Ave, Atlantic City

    They are open 24 hours. Need we say more? They serve breakfast and that's a pretty big selling point after a VERY long night of having some major fun. They have 3 separate happy hours: 3am-5am everyday and weekdays 11am-1pm and 4pm-7pm. They even cater and host events.

    WHERE: 3815 Landis Ave, Sea Isle City

    Definitely for a younger crowd. With Reggae Tuesdays, What The Buck Nights on Thursdays with certain drinks only $1, and live DJs on the weekends, this is a place to go and party. The outside looks like a dive bar, but the inside has more of a night club vibe.

    Robert's Place

    WHERE: 7807 Atlantic Ave, Margate

    This cash only bar has been around since 1977. Their Facebook is flooded with comments of how great everything is: food, staff, atmosphere. The comments are there and if it's on Facebook it MUST be true. We think you should check it out and make sure to leave your own great experience comment!
