One of our favorite things to do on the weekend is go out with some friends, right? A couple of drinks to celebrate the weekend arriving is always high on the priority list.

I'm well past the age of wanting to go to a club, I prefer hitting up a sports bar if there's a big game on. However, sometimes I just want to go somewhere laid back and that's when the good ol dive bar creeps into my mind.

Amarillo has quite a few of these around town, so I hopped on Yelp to take a look at the best Bomb City has to offer. Here's what it said:

HOUSE BAR

This one comes in as the highest rated dive bar on Yelp. Checking in with 4 1/2 stars, it narrowly beats out #2 on the list. With killer happy hour specials like $2 wells & domestics Monday through Saturday from 2-7p, it's bound to get your night off in the proper direction. Throw in some karaoke and theme nights and it's everything you're looking for in a dive bar.

RUMORS

An Amarillo staple and beloved by the community, Rumors is the go-to spot for a lot of people. Miss Cindy, who tragically passed away in a shooting, was always incredibly welcoming to every person who walked through the doors of the bar. I never personally got to meet her, but I've heard nothing but incredible stories about her. The atmosphere in Rumors is incredible and reflects her spirit. You can't go wrong with a stop here.

LEFTWOODS

If it's the dive bar feel and live music you're craving, Leftwoods is the place for you. There's neon for days inside, no glitz and glamour, just a good ol bar slinging drinks and a stage for the bands to perform on. To me, there is no bar that captures the essence of a dive bar better than Leftwoods. With happy hour every day of the week from 4-8pm, you're always going to save a few bucks after work...which you'll ultimately use for another drink I'd imagine.
