308 Bedford Avenue (between Bedford and South 1st St)
What it is: Videology is a video store and screening room-turned bar. They have a large library of films, a solid drink selection, and a friendly atmosphere with plenty of regulars.
Why we love it: Are you itching for a Mary Kate and Ashley sing-a-long? Boozy Jazzercise workout? Notebook screening with chocolate and tissues provided? Videology’s way ahead of you. They have an event every single night, including Tuesday trivia nights, and play the staff’s pick of movies in the bar all day. TV-show themed happy hours are each day from 5 to 7. Sunday is TV night so this is a great spot to watch shows on a screen bigger than your laptop’s. This is a great place for anyone who likes motion pictures. The events are a solid opportunity to make some new friends, come ready to mingle.
What to order: There are six beers on tap with a focus on local brews, lagers, and stouts. It’s only appropriate that you pair this with some popcorn. Every day from 5-11, El Gato Nacho is there serving nachos.
Regular tip: All the bartenders went to film school, so if you want to spend hours dissecting Ghostbusters they’re ready.
