DIVE Bar during the days with primarily older locals-99% men. Lots of dice playing. Attraction is strong, cheap drinks. At night, it morphs into a younger crowd with live entertainment frequently.

Dan's is a fantastic, local drinking hole. It reminds me of the little Irish dives I used to go to in Baltimore. Yes, it's a little old and dated, but Dan's always has a fun vibe. They have great bands, lots of dancing and a...More
