The right bar can be a sacred place.
It can be a place where everyone knows your name. It can be a place where your dad met your mother. It can be so many things.
Especially when it’s on the big (or sometimes small) screen.

You know, like the kind of smoky, expat piano bar Humphrey Bogart might own. Or the neighborhood joint that manages to sum up a city’s entire demographic via about six bar stools.

Or in some cases, plays the main character. (Yes, we’re looking at a little Boston pub named Cheers.)
