Stumbled upon this place and stayed for a cocktail. It’s reminiscent of the 1960s Rat Pack era. Martinis, Gin Gimlets, Old Fashioned....you name it. It was easy to talk to one another and people watch. Worth stopping by for some Sinatra music and a cocktail...More

Had way too many yummy raspberry cosmo's! Love all the 50's 60's deco and the Frank Sanatra music. Was packed on a Saturday night, we got lucky with 2 seats at the bar.

This was such a fun end to a great night! Our drinks were perfect and not at all pricy. The decor was really fun and there was a lot of variety in the clientele.

Orange and turquoise seating, dark wood paneling - this place has a dark but fun atmosphere and an extensive drink menu. I recommend the Moscow Mules. Service was great and the music was perfect. Definitely will be back!

in time. Lovely throwback bar with era music period furniture and sexy service. People can actually converse here without yelling. I liked that my smartphone couldn't get service down there so I put it away and socialized without the media. Very cool place, wish I...More

You can't beat the Starlite Lounge for unique & fun drinks. A couple of us had the Chocolate Martini (creamy) with a surprise Hershey's Kiss at the bottom. SOOO good. My husband had a mojito, which they also do very well here. Our server seemed...More
