Cinema Bar 1950 is a great place to have drinks and watch the sunset. Slow service but good appetizers. Nice outdoor seating. Live music!

Amazing, cozy cinema. Deliciously refreshing cocktails. Interesting film picks. Not impressed by the food, though. Looks good in the menu but didn't taste that great when it got to me. Although one can eat while watching the movie. You know, like actual food, not snacks....More
