Many popular movies have famous bar scenes from The Shining (The Gold Room) and Star Wars (The Mos Eisley catina) to Pulp Fiction (Jake Rabbit Slims) and Inglorious Basterds (La Louisiane). And several are set in bars including Roadhouse, Barfly, Cocktail, and Coyote Ugly, among others.
Below is a list of 7 great underrated movies about bars and bartenders you probably missed. Not because they aren’t as good as those that won Best Picture Oscars (Lost in Translation, Casablanca) or don’t have as many Hollywood stars (they do!) but because these are independent films that didn’t have blockbuster promotional budgets.
