About The Bishop
Formerly The Cinemat, the Bishop's got a split personality. One side is a practically empty space, with a low stage at one end and band merchandise at the other. Swing through a door, and you'll be in the bar, which is lined with back-to-back cushy booths that face a long bar. They've recently obtained a full liquor license, in addition to their wine and craft beers. Smoke-free (like all of Bloomington's venues) and comfortable, The Bishop books a variety of local, mid-level, and small national acts. It's a laid-back joint that begs for a weekday trip.
