Dirty Bill’s is a bar that gets very little sunlight, and that’s no bigger than the seltzer aisle at Whole Foods. While it might sound like somewhere you should take shelter rather than drink, it’s actually the ideal spot for showing up with a friend or two and trying to blend in with the regulars. For a bar of its size, though, it’s surprisingly rowdy. The bartender will take a shot with you, turn on your favorite ’90s hip hop song, and happily help you up onto the bar to dance. Maybe you should take shelter here after all.
