FilmBar doesn't just have the lock down on the hippest indie and foreign film screenings. The theater's lounge is a fully functioning bar, featuring DJs, live music and a carefully selected menu of import and domestic beers.
Standard brews have no place in the bar, which favors full bodied dark beers and tasty pints of Boddingtons. The entertainment tends to be as eclectic as the movies, with ensembles like Haunted Cologne (polka-punk) taking the stage, and DJs offering up world-music cuts.
The bar's Middle Eastern decor is perfect for kicking back, either in the high backed couches or on the floor, beanbag style.
