Our Story

Scum & Villainy Cantina is an intergalactic bar nestled in the wretched hive of Hollywood, CA. Inspired by the best drinking establishments from your favorite sci-fi and fantasy movies, Scum & Villainy is the geek bar you’ve been looking for. Void of TVs and windows to the outside world, Scum & Villainy immerses you in another galaxy, catering to lively conversations like: “Who shot first?”,“Who is the best Star Trek Captain?”, and “Who would win in a fight between Malcom Reynolds, Starbuck, and Han Solo?” Costumed bartenders join in the debate while crafting cocktails from a themed menu of drinks and food. The laid-back atmosphere and strict “no bullying” mission create a sci-fi safe house for casual and mega-fans alike, or anyone looking for a good drink and change of pace from the typical bar scene.

J.C. (major geek and filmmaker) and Jen bar designer teamed up to open the Scum and Villainy as a pop-up in April 2017. The thing they heard most was that people needed a place to go to celebrate their fandom. So in August 2017 SAVC opened to the public.  SAVC will continue to evolve, upgrade and build the ultimate eating, drinking, hang out and events space this galaxy has ever seen.
