Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

They're dark. They're dingy. What they're serving will make you see double. If you're looking for a dive bar, some of the best are in Tampa Bay.

This story features bars where the drinks are strong and the company runs deep. Some even say they're sharing a beer with chosen family. One bar honors regulars who've passed on in a special place, and in a special way.

This is a world where "dive" isn't a bad word. The owners take pride in the reputation, which has kept some of them in business for more than half a century.

In the video player above, take a look inside the blurry nightlife of Tampa's dive bar scene.
