After a three-year hiatus, Best Intentions quietly reopened in 2023, simply writing “we back” on a teeny note posted outside their building. And after three years of separation anxiety, we hope they never leave us again. No barstool stays empty for long, and the fun space full of knickknacks is perpetually full of people happy to stand while funk and soul music blasts through the speakers. Unlike most dives, the cocktails are fantastic, while still keeping the dive bar price point (around $10). Plus, they have a great secluded patio and their $6 smashburger is the ideal bar snack—you can even get a baker’s dozen for $72.
