Alamo Drafthouse has distinguished itself by the food and drink service offered inside the theater, including an exceptional beer list. In addition to box office hits, they offer occasional unique programming such as silent movies scored by local bands playing live accompaniment, food-themed films such as Like Water for Chocolate served with a dinner matching the meals shown on screen, and retrospectives of various directors and stars. Alamo takes dinner and movie to whole new level. With five locations around town (and a sixth coming soon to Mueller), Alamo is a great nightlife destination combined with several of their partner restaurants and bars. At the South Alamo location, hang out at Highball before or after the show to enjoy live music, dancing and karaoke. Lakeline offers the Glass Half Full Taproom, or check out 400 Rabbits at Slaughter Lane, specializing in tequila and mescal based cocktails.
