The Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg will now serve you a drink at your seat, and, not to be outdone, Jason Denton's ('ino) Indie Food and Wine is looking forward to rolling out its drinks program soon literally. Libations at the caf, which is tucked inside the Elinor Bunin Monroe Film Center, will be poured out of a mod, transportable bar cart designed by the Rockwell Group (the same crew that did the space). The cart will roll into the small dining room at about 5 p.m. each night, offering perfect classic cocktails like martinis and Manhattans. The wine list will offer 40 all-Euro varieties; twenty will go by the glass for $8 to $12.

Denton himself is overseeing the program, and having started his career tending bar at his uncle's iconic San Francisco restaurant, Harry Denton's Starlight Room, he's well versed in old-timey cocktails. For the time being, drinks will only be available in the caf, but a rep says they're hoping to expand the license so the cart can offer its boozy services inside the cinema.
