LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — If your idea of happy hour is in a galaxy far, far away, it could be as close as a new “Star Wars”-themed popup bar in Hollywood.
Named after an Obi-Wan Kenobi quote, the Scum and Villainy Cantina at 6377 Hollywood Blvd. is modeled after the Mos Eisley cantina in the first “Star Wars” film and offers fans of all ages a chance to eat, drink and cosplay.
The temporary intergalactic experience – which had been all but sold-out through its initial two-month run – will stay open through June, according to proprietor J.C. Reifenberg.
For the price of admission, guests receive two drinks of their choice from the Cantina’s specialty menu, a souvenir pint glass, an exclusive Scum & Villainy challenge coin, and unspecified “nightly surprises”, according to the event’s website. Themed food items are also available for purchase.
But for die-hard fans, the chance to party like a Stormtrooper is perhaps the biggest draw of all.

I may have had too much blue milk but Aunt Beru was right there in solidarity and since our public transport dropped us only a few blocks from its dark alley, the entire experience was easier than the Kessel run!" . . #scumandvillainycantina 🌟🌟
Some people call us a dive bar as if that's a bad thing… let's be honest – smugglers and bounty hunters don't hang out at the Four Seasons. 🤓 . . 📸:@kidfreeweekend "Not sure if Instagram can handle the sheer girth of this panorama taken inside @scumandvillainycantina…" 🖤. . #scumandvillainycantina #scifisafehouse
