Stateside Independent is thrilled to bring this year’s SXSW hit HEY BARTENDER back to the Stateside Theatre!

This fascinating documentary focuses on two bartenders trying to achieve their dreams through the world of bartending. After being injured a Marine turns his goals to becoming a rock star bartender at the best cocktail bar in the world. A former bank executive who bought the corner bar in his hometown struggles to keep it afloat in a community that no longer values a place where everyone knows your name. Featuring the most famous bartenders in the world along with unprecedented access to the most exclusive bars in New York City and commentary from Graydon Carter, Danny Meyer and Amy Sacco.

If you’ve been living in Austin for a while, you are undoubtedly familiar with our bar scene, one of the best in the world. From old dives and new hangouts with endless beer selections to neighborhood drinking holes and upscale cocktail lounges with some of the finest cocktail craftspeople you’ll find, Austin is a better place to drink than ever. With that in mind, we’re planning to welcome some of our city’s very best local bartenders to the Stateside Theatre for a Q&A where they will discuss their own careers behind the bar.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see a remarkable documentary and hear in-person stories straight from the people living this life every day in Austin!
