The lounge and nightclub known for the past decade and a half as Harry Denton's Starlight Room, atop the Sir Francis Drake Hotel, reopens tonight after a six-week remodel. With the revamp comes a new food menu from Scala's chef Jen Biesty, as well as a brand new, artisanal cocktail program the first of its kind for this hotel bar from former Zero Zero bar manager Joel Teitelbaum. The new design is more shimmery and gold, with a lot of pink accents, and the dance floor that overlooks all of Union Square and SoMa has been completely resurfaced with a starburst pattern and tiny, embedded lights that twinkle underfoot.
The popular Sunday's a Drag brunch, hosted by drag queen socialite Donna Sachet, already moved back into the space this past weekend, and the official reopening is tonight at 6 p.m.
We'll update you with food and drink menus as soon as we have them. But for now, take a gander at our slideshow of the refreshed interior. And be glad that there are now five decent cocktail bars in the immediate vicinity of Union Square Clock Bar, Cantina, Burritt Room, and Jasper's Corner Tap being the other four.
