Welcome to the Dive Bar Power Hour, a full hour dedicated to dive bars. Unlike their more popular sibling, the cocktail bar, dive bars are slightly rough around the edges -maybe sticky too- but even they need love too. Up first, Houston's bar industry shares their definition of a dive bar.
Francisco Terrazas, general manager of The Pastry War: "A place that cares more about giving people a relaxed atmosphere."
Terry Williams, general manager of Anvil Bar & Refuge: "A place I can go where no one knows my name."
Cheryl Gibbs, bartender at Captain Foxheart's Bad News Bar & Spirit Lodge: "A place where anyone can walk in."
Ben Mowbray, bartender at Moving Sidewalk: "A place you go when you've accidentally killed your dreams and need to drown your sorrows."
