Dive bars are the antithesis of change.
Regular customers expect the same person to serve them the same drink, and that it will taste the same, the bar will smell the same, and that nothing will ever surprise them there.
Sarah Jewell, who managed Seattle’s Central Saloon, called many of her regulars “ritualistic.”
But whether it’s ritual, habit, or comfort, dive bars are the opposite of trendy, and the opening of a new bar is the opposite of everything for which the dive bar genre stands.
