Ok, so there really was no Rick's Cafe from the movie Casablanca. It as a set of a gin joint where she walked in, where Sam played it again, and where he looked at her. But the authenticity really doesn't matter because when you're in Casablanca, you just really want to go to Rick's Cafe. The recreated cafe is a beautiful high-ceilinged restaurant with craps tables and dark wood bars. Musicians play on the piano and the movie plays on TVs upstairs.
