Entering the Drake Hotel is quite an experience, it is beautiful! Even among such grandeur the Starlight holds its' own. The ambiance is a throw back to the age of glitz & glam. I truly expected a Frank Sinatra type to sing along with the...More

Okay so this is an old school cocktail lounge located at the top of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel. It's well worth a stop to see the view (especially at night) and the lounge has a great atmosphere. As with most of these places in...More

Had a wonderful time with the dancing at the night club - the staff was super great, the views amazing and the music was perfect to get you into the dancing mood. Highly recommend - really great wine list as well.

Loved the view, loved the drinks, loved the music and loved the host. I don't usually like lemon drops but I loved Starlights'. I also ordered a lavender type cocktail it was also delicious.

We had a great time at the Sunday's a Drag brunch! The buffet brunch was lovely, good quality food. The Drag Queens were all fantastic, each doing two songs. Would highly recommend if you are in San Francisco on a Sunday.

Went at about 10pm and there was a good crowd. Music was ok. Played a variation but mostly hip hop. Drinks were yummy. I had a good Moscow mule but drinks were pretty pricey.
