The Cinema Tavern
200 West Montgomery St.
Villa Rica, GA 30180

Located in Villa Rica, just about 30 minutes west of Atlanta, The Cinema Tavern is one of the best nightlife spots around. Villa Rica is a quiet, small town. It has a lot of historical meaning as well. Although it is tagged a sports bar, its a great place to mingle and meet other singles. They have an extensive menu, from appetizers such as loaded fries, onion rings and Bubba Gump Shrimp, to main courses including numerous sandwiches and burgers, to desserts such as cheesecake and chocolate molten cake. What’s not to like about chocolate molten cake? After all, chocolate and Valentine’s Day definitely go together. Join them for Valentine’s dinner.

It is the perfect place to take in the city skyline and mingle with Atlanta’s finest singles. Their deck also serves as a bridge to their sister lounge, Lava. Lava features a dance floor that is the best of Atlanta dance floors. Lava is well known for bringing you only the best D.J’s. Both lounges offer a beautiful atmosphere in which to just take in the beautiful scenery.
