@christinalizzo excellent list - Cheers and Mos Eisley Cantina would top my list.


Fascinating article. My quibbles are the restaurant from Big Night should have been at the top of the list; the Copacabana is not fictional; and Sam's cafe from The Last Picture Show deserved to be included.

And you didn't mention that at night, the late great Bea Arthur tends bar at Mos Eisley Cantina.
