Fellow Star Wars nerds! Warp speed over to Hollywood’s Scum and Villainy Cantina for Sci-Fi themed drinks and fun galore. The Scum and Villainy Cantina is modeled after the infamous Chalmun’s Spaceport Cantina from Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.

The “Wretched Blue Milk” or Bantha Milk is a Star Wars staple. We first meet our hero, Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, enjoy a glass of blue milk with his aunt and uncle on Tatooine. The Blue Milk has since made recent appearances in Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One.

The drink itself tastes exactly like a Pina colada. The rum overpowers the senses with a hint of coconut. It’s the perfect tropical drink to beat the heat after a long day.

Stormtrooper masks and neon colored chemistry flasks furnish the bar’s geeky apparel. The décor is cool but it’s the sense of community the people have created here that makes it truly special. Keep an eye out for some awesome costumes! Cosplay is encouraged but not required. Whether you’re a part of the Rebel Alliance or drawn more towards the Dark Side there’s a specialized drink just for you!
