There's nothing like finding the hometown bar that you happen to come across that is small, old-style drinking, and has good people all around. Yelp put together a list of the Top 50 Dive Bars in each state and Missouri's pick is a short drive from the Tri-States. Welcome to Small Change located at 2800 Indiana Ave. in St. Louis (Benton Park) this dive bar gets 4 1/2 starts on Yelp, see some of the amazing reviews.

The bar itself has been around for over 35 years and is known for having a casual bar, signature cocktails, and where everyone is welcome to drink. They even are dog-friendly so you can bring your four-legged friend with you and enjoy a drink outside.

How Did They Find the Best Dive Bars?

It's all about the reviews. I always talk about if you love a restaurant, place, or bar Yelp is the place to show your love. It does make a difference, especially for people that are traveling. They look at these reviews when deciding where to spend their money.

We identified businesses in the dive bars category, then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews. When available, all businesses on this list have a passing health score as of October 17, 2022.

When we travel we use Yelp all the time. It really comes in handy when you are unfamiliar with a town or city and really have no idea where to go for a drink, dinner, or some entertainment. Another place to add to our must-visit location in St. Louis.
