Dive Bars

Located right next door to a Polish restaurant and sharing its roots, Bristol Lounge serves up a very different variety of dive bar snacks than you're typically used to. Take, for instance, the chicken gizzards, hunter’s stew, or beef tripe soup this unlabeled, laid-back spot serves up with pints of traditionally dark and malty Polish beer with a shots of grenadine in it -- proof that the Polish have been under-the-radar party pros for decades now.
