This is my old college bar. Spent many years here learning what I liked and sampling new and different things on an extremely tight budget. Things used to be cheaper too. One of the only places I knew of where you could go in 3+ times a week, leave only spending 10 bucks, drinking fine Belgians and thats all you needed. The vibe is my kind of place and what I seek out, dive bars with a good selection. The crowd is still varied, but has gotten way more popular and crowded in recent years. Sundays are the prime days in my opinion; take advantage of the German beer specials, eat some free bbq and hang out with your dogs at the bar. Sweetness I say.

A nice dive bar with a reputation for a good jukebox. Beer selection is minimal at best but you don't go for the beer. Can be smokey from what I remember.

Used to come here a lot more, but recently I wanted to stop by and check out the Franconia beers they have on tap. Definitely a cool little bar, I enjoy the indie rock scene so I feel a little at home here. This is the place where you get to hear solid music that aren't the standard bar jams, on weekends they usually have a dj. Other than that prices are usually real cheap which is nice and their patio is the best in Arlington. I definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for something more than a standard bar in the Arlington area.

The caves is, well, to sum it up, not what it seems. You will probably drive past it the first time you try to find it. Sandwiched between a cheap motel & who knows what, it sits at the back of a long parking lot, the building capped by a Kitschy car. Inside is the pitch black version of a mock-tudor pub, and with the neo-retro furniture and the video screen of a fire in the fireplace, it looks like just the place to pick up Goth chicks. My only complaint is that I always return smelling of cigarette smoke. Not unusual but not pleasant either. Oh but the beer selection. Unbelieveable selection for a dive on Division street in Arlington, perhaps best summed up in their motto, "Division. It's not just for bums & prostitutes any more". The bartenders are knowledgable and very helpful. They've got a good selection on draft and more bottled. The prices are phenomenal. It's a very friendly place and a great place to try in the mid-cities, which suffers from an admitted dearth of good beer bars since the Flying Saucer there closed. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
