(North Kansas City, MO)

Scooter’s 229th bar, first visited in 2007.

Paci's Cafe, North Kansas City

This is a place that blurs the boundaries of my definition of a dive, but since it technically meets most of the criteria I’ll go ahead and count it even though it’s a little classier.

There’s a very extensive bottled beer selection, and as of 2009 or so a nice semi-covered patio.

It’s amazing how much traffic this bar gets, considering how hidden it is. (Though the demolition in early 2011 of a long-abandoned building across the street has improved visibility.)
