The first story begins with a woman named Francine (Xander Berkeley) who walks into a bar in downtown Los Angeles. She is there to meet her boyfriend, Danny (Diedrich Bader), who is a bartender working at the establishment. However, things take a turn when Francine discovers that Danny has been cheating on her with another patron. She soon devises a plan to get back at him and finds an unlikely ally in the bar's regular, Billy (Devon Aoki).

The second story revolves around a young lawyer named Nick (Josh Hartnett) who finds himself stuck in a bar with a beautiful stranger named Jo (Alexis Bledel). Jo has been trying to get Nick to open up to her, but he remains guarded due to his profession. When the bar is held up by a group of robbers, Nick and Jo must band together to survive the ordeal and reveal their true feelings for one another.

In the third story, a man named Billy (Zachary Quinto) walks into a bar, and through a series of flashbacks, his life story plays out. We learn that Billy is a brilliant lawyer who has recently lost his job and is forced to face some difficult truths about himself. In the bar, he encounters a mysterious woman (Emmanuelle Chriqui) who helps him to understand the importance of taking risks in life.

The fourth story features a young couple named Sam (Emmanuelle Chriqui) and Dave (Nick Stahl), who find themselves in a bar after a fight. Sam is a struggling actress with a lot of emotional baggage, while Dave is a successful businessman who seems to have it all. As the night progresses, they both reveal their innermost fears and desires, leading to a new level of understanding between them.

In the fifth story, a man named Dodge (Gil Bellows) walks into a bar on a mission to end his own life. He encounters a talkative bartender (Danny DeVito) who won't let him leave until he hears his life story. As Dodge opens up about his past, he begins to see the value of his life and starts to take control of his future.

Finally, the sixth story follows a woman named Teresa (Rosario Dawson) who is on a mission to track down her missing husband.
