Pretty nice bar area, classy looking joint to say the least. The selection has some local stuff on tap and some more main stream beers as well. The service was ok, they weren't very chatty or anything with us so we didn't feel obligated to sit at the bar while we waited for our theater to open so we could grab our seats. The idea of the place is pretty cool. However, I feel like the waiters & waitresses walking around serving people during the movie can get a bit distracting at times. The food we tried was very good though so that was a plus. I'd go back but it is a little on the expensive side too.

A new establishment that opened this past year combining a movie theater with food and alcohol, pretty cool. This will be my theater of choice for movies because I can enjoy being waited on while watching a movie. Very plush home theater style seating with a over-sized lecture hall style table that rotates towards the seat for your beer and food while watching the movie. Now - the cool thing here is you can still go to the bar and leave without including a movie since the bar area is separate from the theater. The bar area is very cozy, comfortable, inviting, and has a regulation sized table top shuffleboard. (16) taps total with 75% of the taps devoted to craft and 25% to the macro drinkers. The breweries on tap when we were there was: Sly Fox, New Belgium (Fat Tire), Sam Adams (New England IPA), Bell's (Oberon), Southern Tier (8 Days A Week IPA and Pumking), Funk (Disco), Victory (Prima Pils), Weihenstephan, Jailbreak Brewing (Slow and Low), Yuengling (Golden Pils), and then the usual suspects ----> Miller Lite, Blue Moon, Modelo, and Angry Orchard (which doesn't qualify as a beer obviously). The beers aren't mind blowing but rock solid and the ambiance is extremely cool. I like the fact they are supporting some local brewers. Best beer destination in the Lehigh Valley? No. Best destination to watch a movie with solid beer and good food? Absolutely. For those who live local to here (like myself), would definitely go back to enjoy a few beers after work, relax, and play table top shuffleboard. Not my top beer destination choice but extremely unique.
