I'm trying to remember the name of the bar in Star Wars where (I think) Luke meets Hans Solo. The one filled with freaky aliens. Reminds me of the local ex-pat bar here in Korea. Anyone know?

I kinda like "Hans Solo."

Would that make Chewbacca's name "Tschübaka?"

Actually, it was the Emerald Cafe.

That's why he's gonna kill us. So we got to beat it. Yeah. Before he let's loose the marmosets on us."

In the original Icelandic subtitle translation of Star Wars they translated all the names of the characters..

Han Solo was Hans Óli
Leia was Lilja
Luke was Logi
Darth Vader was Svarthöfði
etc



When I was a kid we always used the Icelandic names!

He actually met him 2 years earlier in the Blue Oyster Bar, but it was pretty dark (and everyone was pretty drunk) so he didn't remember.

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

OK, so if I'm reading this correctly, Darth Vader = Svarthöfði = Blackhead. So here is a picture of Darth Vader, circa early 1990s:

I believe the original script had the bar as a galactically popular gay bar called "The Hot Poker". But that was back in the 70's and Lucas got a lot of flak for it so he changed it. Honest.
