R.I.P. To One Of The Great Dive Bars On Cape Cod


CapeCodOnline.com – House of Bud’s, a local dive bar known for its eclectic musical guests, closed Friday after the building was sold, according to the brokers that arranged the sale.

When a Times reporter called House of Bud’s on Tuesday, a recording indicated that the bar had closed.

It’s always a sad day when we lose an institution. House of Bud’s has been there in one incarnation or another for a long time. Bud’s made it all the way to the Great Eight round in our Cape Cod Dive Bar Madness last winter, and if you remember how heated that tournament was, you know that was no easy feat. It may have gone even deeper had it not run into an eventual finalist in The Fox Hole.

For people that live west of Hyannis it was always a good place to have a beer after shopping to cleanse the “malliness” out of you bones. You will be missed Bud.

P.S. Is it time for another Dive Bar Tournament?

  1. I like dive bars, I mean I've drank three dollar old fashioneds in a place with 2×4 parquet floors, and even I thought the Whaleback was too divey. I love the junkyard behind it though.
