As greasy dive bars go, we vote Rock the Dock the best! It’s The “best worst” dive bar you’ll ever visit in Tacoma from your boat. They occasionally feature live music in addition to karaoke and other performances. There is something truly special about their gritty, unrefined atmosphere. The dimly lit corners, the worn-in stools, and the smell of stale beer and greasy food all come together to create a sense of nostalgia and discomfort.
As one sits at the bar at Rock the Dock, surrounded by the chatter of patrons and the clink of glasses, one can’t help but feel a sense of camaraderie. This a place where people from all walks of life come together, united by their love of cheap drinks and Bad Company blasting from the old jukebox. It is a place where one can let down their guard and simply be themselves, sometimes to their detriment.
But this dive bar is not just about the atmosphere and the weird people, it is also about the food. Oh! – The greasy, delicious food that can only be found in a dive bar! Whether it’s a plate of wings, a cheeseburger or a hotdog, the food in a dive bar is always satisfying. It’s not fancy, but it’s filling and it’s really like the famous last meal if you’re going to die of a heart attack anyway.
In a world that often feels polished and fake, Rock the Dock is a refreshing change of pace. It is a place where one can escape the stresses of everyday life and simply be. It is a place where one can find solace in a cold beer (or ten), a hot meal and the company of others. It is a place where one can truly be themselves and let the world outside fade away, except for the Harley gangs and the guys at the plant that get off at 3 am.
In short, a greasy dive bar like Rock the Dock is not just a place to grab a drink, or get laid, it’s a place to find community, comfort and a sense of belonging. It’s a place where one can truly be at ease, and for that, it will always hold a special place in our hearts as an experience you should have at least once in your lifetime. Not top ten, mind you, but on there…down past 50 or so.
