    the Cintra, a cramped bar known for cheap beer

    The Cintra in Marseille, on the other hand (now closed) was an "elegant" place to meet on the corner of the "Vieux Port" and the Canebière.

    Went to Rick's in Casablanca a couple of years ago, excellent club that really evokes the movie. Very interesting walk from downtown through the medina to reach it.

    I miss "Bogey's Bar" in Roppongi, which tried with fair success to imitate the atmosphere of Rick's Cafe. Similar interior, retro cocktail;s on the menu, waiters in old-fashioned tuxes, etc., even a pianist who would take requests including, of course, As Time Goes By.

    It hung on for quite a while, but finally fell victim to the bubble bursting.

    Casablanca in 1942 was a jewel of the French colonial empire,

    There was no French empire in 1942. If I understand, everybody is fan of that boring movie but nobody has ever watched it.
