Directed by George Clooney, The Tender Bar centers on a boy named J.R. Moehringer (played by Daniel Ranieri as a young boy and Tye Sheridan as a young man), who is growing up without a father in Long Island, New York. He finds a father figure instead in his Uncle Charlie (Ben Affleck), and the patrons who frequent his uncle’s bar.
There’s nothing like a visit to a bar where everybody knows your name, and the nostalgia hits especially hard when you know that The Tender Bar is based on the true story of the real J.R. Moehringer’s childhood. Here’s what to know about The Tender Bar true story, the actual bar from The Tender Bar, and where J.R. Moehringer is now. IMDB
