Where would you imagine the oldest bar in the state would be? I have the answer for you thanks to the Daily Meal.

First, when you think about the oldest watering hole in the state, you think about an old building, classic pictures and writings on the walls.

For example, in my home state of Louisiana, Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop and Bar (New Orleans) is and old bar, build in the 1700 and the place looks like it goes back to 1772. But still, you have to love the history of that place when you walk into the place. You savor the drink as you sip it. You wonder of all the different people that bellied up to that historic bar.

With Sturgis just weeks away, visit Buffalo Bodega in Deadwood. It's also a gambling hall, built in 1877, which receives the honors for being the oldest bar in South Dakota.

The oldest bar in North Dakota is in downtown Bismarck, The Peacock Alley would be the place established in 1933 as the Paterson Hotel according to the Daily Meal.
