About the Film

When young Joe Buck decides to leave Texas (and his inhibitions) behind, he heads east to the Big Apple with plans to make his way in the world as a gigolo. However, his naiveté is soon evident as he learns what it means for “the hustler to get hustled”. Things start looking up, however, when he meets the nearly-homeless con man “Ratso” Rizzo who takes Joe under his wing and shows him the big city ropes. The two form a bond and do their best to survive the tough streets of 1960s New York.

John Schlesinger’s classic 1969 film is considered to be one of the best films in cinema history. The on-screen chemistry between stars Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman is undeniable, and the two deliver timeless performances that are still studied and discussed half-a-century later.

Along with the specialty cocktail, we will have a full menu of wine, local beer and local ciders.
