Best Dive Bar, Wayne County 

Old Miami

3930 Cass Ave., Detroit; 313-831-3830

With a garden out back that provides the perfect place for Movement Festival day parties and nighttime bonfires, this Vietnam Vet bar indoctrinates you in Cass Corridor culture. The drinks are stiff, the service comes more with a smirk than a smile, and you never know what sort of eccentric is sitting next to you. It's one of the best places in the region to strike up a conversation with a stranger. Yes, strangers. Your parents were wrong about a lot of things. Like when they told you life gets better. Sorry. It doesn't. Now belly up to the bar and start living life by the drop.
