The Royal American is a newer joint, so they haven’t quite earned their dive stripes, but the look of this place—which is located in an old metal smith shop on Morrison Drive (just south of the Tattooed Moose)—is headed toward dive status. It’s beat-up and comfortable with one of the best bar patios in town. Excellent live music is often playing and the canned bear and spirits selection is always solid.
