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.

Plays all the greats from the 50’s and 60’s. Not loud - so you can still talk with everyone at your clamshell booth or retro table. The wait staff is dressed in black and white and keeps the theme going. The drinks are amazing and...More

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

We visited for the first time on a football Saturday. The place was packed with people partying before the game. The decor of this underground bar was late 60's early 70's. The lounge was actually quite large inside. They were offering some type of buffet,...More

Cool underground place, not to be missed. A total throw back to the 60's. You think Sinatra, Elvis or the original James Bond is going to take a bar stool next to you. Great, funky appetizers like 'mini cocktail hotdogs'. Have your martini shaken not...More
