Char Bar

A well-loved bar of the downtown service industry crowd, Char Bar is everything a great dive bar should be. It serves cheap, strong drinks, it keeps it refreshingly lowkey and lowtech (having no stand alone devoted website), environs simple and quaint. Beyond this, Char Bar exudes an air of mystery—supposedly haunted, its structure sits atop a series of labyrinth-like underground tunnels. A more than suitable bar for getting knackered, and an optimum choice for Best Dive Bar.
