Ackmena is a cantina bartender trying to make ends meet by serving
drinks to the exotic alien clientele, but she finds the Empire
can be bad for business. She is assisted by her short sidekick
friend and a bouncer named Tork. Cantina patron Krelman is in
love with her, but Ackmena claims she has no time for such things.
Ackmena's cantina is one of a number of cantinas found in Mos
Eisley. Unlike Wuher, the surly bartender at the Wookiee Chalmun's
cantina where Luke and Ben met Han and Chewie, Ackmena is a lot
more personable with her patrons, even lending them money or helping
them out from time to time. There is some crossover in clientele
between the two cantinas, and Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes
have been known to play at both venues.
