The ribbon is cut, the drinks were served and the guests were fed…it was a great night at Stamford’s Bow Tie Majestic 6 theater!
The Majestic on Summer Street has upped its game recently with luxury renovations that have turned it into more than just a movie destination, they’ve turned it into a full night out venue and more.
Now you can not only grab some popcorn and a soda to go watch the latest Dwayne Johnson movie in the newly added recliner seats, but you can also grab some food and drinks at the in house Majestic Bar and restaurant area as well!
The menu is a nice variation of small bites and appetizers like the usual sliders, nachos and chicken tenders you find in most bars…but then they kicked it up a notch. This menu has a great and unusual mix of food that will have everyone in your group feeling full and happy (including the kids).
The night of the grand opening, we got to sample quite a bit of goodies and before I continue with that, I’d like to first give a shout-out to the wonderful servers they had that night. Every one of them was so nice and really went out of their way to make sure we all had a chance to try everything. And if we happened to mention we liked something in particular? The next round they’d make sure to come and see you first. So thank you to all of them!
Back to the food…I had the opportunity to sample a good mix and my personal favorites were the fried pickles, NY style pizza with pepperoni and sausage and the chicken and waffles. Although my only suggestion for that dish would be to ask for the honey syrup on the side as there were many of us with sticky hands. However, the one thing you heard from those who had it was how good it was. (It really was.)
They have a nice selection to choose from including breakfast items served all day, to hot sandwiches like chicken parm, burgers and dogs, artisan pizzas and flatbreads and vegetarian/plant based options like Korean BBQ veggie meatball steamed buns, Beyond burgers and buffalo cauliflower (which was another favorite of mine.)
Aside from the food, they have a nice bar setup with fantastic signature drinks, large screen TVs where they will be varying the programming from sports to movies and more. They also plan to meld into the downtown bar scene with karaoke and trivia nights, happy hours and even a Sunday brunch!
So let me paint you a picture…imagine a Sunday funday where you go and have a nice Sunday brunch while enjoying a mimosa and a Belgium waffle. Head over to the bar and have a beer and some pretzel bites while watching your favorite team on one of the TVs. Then when the game is over, grab a ticket, some gourmet popcorn or candy and an Icee and go watch a great movie in a cushy recliner, then come out for dinner and music all without leaving the building!
I would also like to add (from their press release so I don’t get it wrong): In addition, Bow Tie Cinemas has added a brand new BTX – BOW TIE XTREME® large format auditorium with giant screen presentation and DOLBY ATMOS® 13.1 digital surround sound. (Think IMAX-esque for size comparison.)
In an era of ever changing storefronts in the downtown area, it was so nice to see a venue that has become a staple, not only remain, but upgrade into something special as well. For those who live downtown, this will be a perfect spot within walking distance where you’ll have the opportunity to do so much all in one space.
I’d like to thank the Bow Tie Cinemas group and MaxEx PR for hosting such a great night and already looking forward to visiting the new Majestic again soon!
