Best Dive Bar

Posted October 9, 2008 in Feature Story

The Flamingo is virtually the same as it was in 1971 when the late Barbara Hyman opened it—a place when patrons can “conversate” without the heavy tension of dinner. The Dirty Birdy is a Redlands landmark with its never ending happy hour ($2 shots/$2.50 drafts), shuffleboard, foosball and photographs from bygone days; these are the flecks of nostalgia that go nicely with a little drink and introspection. The absence of cigarette smoke seems criminal here. (George Donovan)
