Scum & Villainy Cantina
6377 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, California, CA 90028
In Los Angeles there are many pop-up event to go to that are only around for a limited amount of time, such as restaurants, the Museum of Ice Cream and even a Star Wars themed bar, Scum & Villainy. We all remember the cantina scene in A New Hope, where Han shot first, right?
If not here it is:
I love the Star Wars movies, but I'm not an expert like my friends are (but i did rock a 40th Anniversary shirt from the GAP)!
We made reservations by buying tickets online a month in advance. For $50, you receive "two drink tokens, souvenir glass, and challenge coin. The coin can be used for half price cash re-entry during any future open walk-up availability." Tickets can be bought here: TICKETS
We had a designated check-in time at 8:30p. We arrived around 8:15p and lined up in an alley among ewoks, princesses and other charming characters. There wasn't a marking or anything on the building, just someone standing by the door checking people in. Oh and Han on the wall across from it.
Upon check-in, we were given our 2 drink tokens and a ticket for our gift at the end. Finally, we made our way inside shortly after 8:30p.
Everyone was let in at once and we had a little over 2 hours to enjoy our time at the bar. The drink tokens were exchanged for one of their three pre-made mixed drinks (which weren't bad and pretty strong) or a beer.
We managed to get a booth in the corner (just like Han Solo).
There were a lot of lights and fog machines, but what really make this bar great? The patrons. Those who came in costume gave this bar its charm, feeling like you stepped into a galaxy far far away...
And here's a little video to see the inside...
For bar snacks, they were served quickly and not bad for bar food. Portions were a decent size and sharable. We got a couple of orders of the AT Tots and the Carbonite Queso.
Here are the menus:
On our way out we exchanged our ticket for our gift, which was a pint glass and a challenge coin.
I really had a great time being a Star Wars nerd for a night!
