PERTH is home to the world’s best dive bar.

International travel website Big 7 Travel has named their 50 best dive bars in the world with Perth’s very own Joe’s Juice Joint in Northbridge taking out the number one spot.

Located down a laneway on William Street, the graffiti-covered pub offers fried chicken, free peanuts, pinball, a variety of beers and bourbon and a classic rock playlist.

Big 7 Travel said Joe’s Juice Joint was “everything you want from an underground dive bar” for its reasons to give the bar the top spot.

Joe’s Juice Joint has beaten other well-known bars from around the world including The Salty Dawg Saloon in Alaska, Pijana Wiśnia in Poland and Heartbreaker in Melbourne.

According to Big 7 Travel, the dive bar trend has gone global.

Dive bar is a colloquial American term for a disreputable pub or bar where locals and city slickers gather to drink and socialise.

Joe’s Juice Joint is open weeknights and weekends from 8pm till late.
