We asked what your favorite dive bars are in Michigan, and here are some of the favorites. And before it starts, I’m not naming EVERY dive bar in Michigan. If yours isn’t on this list, don’t take it personally. These are just some from listener submissions.

Oh, and dive “rock clubs” don’t count. I think a good dive bar should also sell food.
