Thrillist has come out with a list of the 33 best dive bars in America. There's actually two from our region that made the list. The first is in St. Paul, but the other is even closer.

St. Paul's The Arcade Bar made the list of the best dive bars. But even closer was La Pointe, Wisconsin's Tom's Burned Down Cafe. It's located near Ashland on Madeline Island. The bar actually was built around an old cafe, as you can figure out by the name. This bar is also on the shores of Lake Superior and according to the Thrillest article, that makes it qualify as a great beach bar!

With La Pointe being about 90 miles away from the Twin Ports, it would be a fun day destination to visit! Not only does Tom's have their own Facebook page, but they even have a Facebook fan page created for them!

St. Paul's Arcade Bar in St. Paul on Arcade Street (hence the name). It's a friendly neighborhood bar that looks cozy, clean, and laid back. It's another great option to check out next time you are in the area.
