By SHAILA DEWANBeyond the theme parks, gator farms and citrus groves of Orlando, there are plentiful options that include museums, picturesque lakes, dive bars and gastro-pubs.
A dive bar is a type of bar or pub.
Dive bars generally have a relaxed and informal atmosphere—they are often referred to by local residents as "neighborhood bars," where people in the neighborhood gather to drink and socialize. Individual bars may be considered to be disreputable, sinister, or even a detriment to the community:
“The dives themselves are nuisances, per se, and that is why they have to pay such high license prices.”The Shorter Oxford English Dictionary indicates that, in the United States in the 1880s, the term referred to an illegal drinking den or other place of ill repute, especially one located in a basement. However, this usage has since become obsolete. Some people attribute the term to the practice of patrons diving under tables when trouble broke out, particularly gunplay.
In 2010, Playboy magazine described a dive bar as:
“A church for down-and-outers and those who romanticize them, a rare place where high and low rub elbows — bums and poets, thieves and slumming celebrities. It’s a place that wears its history proudly.”
