An expert from Thrillist.com claims the term 'dive' is overused. What makes a faker in Signs You're Not A Dive Bar got downright funny.

Maybe Wyomingites know the difference. The thrillist gives a few examples of criteria such as the following: if there's a good top shelf, no duct tape in the booths, and an extensive food menu, it's not a dive. If there is a wifi code, they sell souvenir shirts, or the bathroom is comfortable, it is not a dive. Well...

So this just begs for a test of Cheyenne bars, answering which are - and are not - dives.

 

The Crown Bar - Absolutely a dive. Always look over your shoulder in the bathroom.

Stanfords - Not a dive. Looks like a flea market on acid, but not divey.

Scooter's Scoreboard's - Dive. Great Bloody Mary's.

Alf's Pub - Almost a dive, but the restrooms and patio are too nice.

Redwood Lounge - Dive.

Outlaw Saloon - Not a dive. Divey things happen, but it's a meat market; not a dive.

Four Winds - Dive.

Cadillac Ranch - Not a dive. Dives serve real shots; not fru fru shooters.

Anderson's Other Corner - Dive.

Peppermill - Neighborhood bar, not fancy, but not a dive.
