Dive Bars

Just a block from the beach, and back in action after a two-alarm fire gutted the place, The Riptide is where surfers and non-surfers alike wash up from the shore and settle in with live music and a hot toddy by a roaring fire. The rustic brick fireplace really is the star of this cozy, honky-tonk dive, but the cheap and classic beers on tap are a close second. Riptide has bands ranging from bluegrass to punk perform, plus frequent karaoke nights -- and the strong cocktails you need to belt out that Whitney ballad.
