7B in the movies


[Paul Newman in The Verdict]

A reader shared this video... a fan of 7B/Vazac's posted the clip on Vimeo last December... a montage showing the various TV shows/movies filmed at the bar on Avenue B and East Seventh Street through the years...



... it includes classics such as "The Godfather Part II" ... "The Verdict" ... "Serpico" ... and some crap like "What Happens In Vegas" ... regardless, a perennial shoo-in for Best Supporting Bar.

It's those square windows, you just can't beat them!

Of course, by "square windows" I mean the small panes.

Agree about the windows; there is an odd, shimmery quality about the light, especially on cloudy days. The old Teresa's had it, too.

I loathe this place because the film shoots here require that three blocks be taken up by trucks working for the crew. I hope it gets shut down, but not keeping my fingers crossed.

This is great! Most I knew, but some I never realized were filmed there. Excellent compilation!

Wasn't "Rent" (2005) filmed there as a proxy for Life Cafe?

Doesn't really matter, but wasn't "The Verdict" set in Boston?

Tons of early Law & Order (early, mid 90's) are shot there too.

I remember when this place was made up to be Life Cafe, a few short blocks away from Life Cafe!

This is great! I believe the bar scenes in Urbania (2000) were also shot there.
