The Texas Theatre Bar

The Bar opens 45 min before first showtime Thursday through Sunday. We may also open for special screenings and events other days of the week.  Please check our calendar for details.

In the Fall of 2010 Aviation Cinemas installed a few upgrades to the already impressive architecture of the Texas Theatre. One of most important ones is our full service bar. Keeping with the original architect’s century modern aesthetic, while providing contemporary convenience for our patrons, the classy bar is a perfect fit for this historic landmark.

Our focus is to offer quality ingredients with an emphasis on smaller batch boutique products – all the while, offering tasty local craft beers and inexpensive lagers. The lounge area is open during screenings for patrons who’d rather enjoy a drink than take in a movie, although guests are encouraged to take their refreshments with them into the theater when they do catch a flick. We have a fantastic list custom cocktails inspired by cinema.

Feel free to stop by and enjoy the architecture or hang out and talk about movies with other film lovers and filmmakers. Film geeks are certainly encouraged and we’ve got a wide array of film literature scattered throughout to satisfy your curiosity; and paintings on display, inspired by classic film posters to take a gander at.

Additionally, we’re old-school retro and think vinyl’s way cooler than digital. In lieu of a traditional jukebox, we’ve installed a record player. While we’ve got a permanent collection on rotation, we certainly encourage guests to BYOV: Bring Your Own Vinyl!

In late 2021 we added a second upstairs full bar to complement the renovations. (Visit it soon!)
