Best Dive Bar2011 Finalist See 2011’s Winner »
1613 Greenville Ave., Dallas, TX 75206
Ships is one of the oldest dives in town, and it sits between the Lower Greenville club scene and an old East Dallas neighborhood. Visiting Ships on any evening offers a one-of-a-kind look into what happens when the two worlds collide. On one end of the bar you'll see folks who've been regulars since the bar opened some 50 years ago. Just a few seats down, you'll usually see musicians and artists mixed in with people trying to catch a game on television. The older regulars like to keep the place quiet, and they enforce a strict no-cussing policy. So be prepared to use your inside voices -- or at least keep it to a dull roar. Don't bother pulling out your plastic here: The antique brass cash register is just that: a cash register, ready to make change for the Best of Dallas-winning jukebox stocked with classic Motown, country, soul and blues.
