Profile

The Nitehawk Cinema’s bar may play second fiddle to the movie theater upstairs, but despite the novelty of (legally) drinking while watching a Terrence Malick movie, the downstairs watering hole is a worthy establishment in its own right. Snug, warm, and friendly, the bar hosts a strong neighborhood scene, couples waiting for their show to start, and folks in from Manhattan checking out the buzz around Brooklyn’s gastro-theater. The menu at the baroverseen by executive chef Saul Boltonfeatures the same comfort food and re-booted cinematic staples that you can order in the theaters: tater tots, burgers, housemade beef jerky, popcorn with inventive flavors like truffle butter and citric acid, and queso, all make for some tasty snacking. There’s a nice mix of craft brewsBrooklyn, Sixpoint, Goose Islandand some specialty cocktails and entrees based on the films screening upstairs (e.g., Bitter End Pale Ale in honor of Melancholia). The bar is all leather booths, dark features, burnished metal, and far less movie paraphernalia than you’d expect. Sure, the Nitehawk plays mostly indie flicks, but the bar itself is a certified blockbuster.
