If you're young and artsy and want to meet locals who share those traits, come here. Technically its a cinema, showing art films, documentaries, crime shows, and the like, but plenty of people come for the drinks. Through the door past the sofa chairs, the atmosphere is faded and somewhat dingy, but still charming at the 10m (30-ft.) bar. There's plenty of conversation, good drinks, and sympathetic company. The bar starts filling up around 9:30pm and by midnight it's packed, often with university students. It's a local secret, so don't dare mention you're a tourist.
