The word "dive bar" has been somewhat controversial throughout the years because it started out being used to describe disreputable places.

However, today the dive bar is used in a good way to describe a small, old-time, friendly, and comfortable bar that often serves the local clientele.

If you were to ask a bunch of Newport residents about their favorite dive bars in the area. Most likely, they would mention one of the 3 bars in the list below.

Crazy Fox Saloon

The owner of the Crazy Fox Saloon, Terry Bond has said,

We want everyone to come in here and feel comfortable with the understanding that most prejudice is based on ignorance and fear. So, how do you break that down? You get people to mingle and get to know each other..
