Star Lounge is comprised of three separate and very distinct rooms, each with its own mystique and aura of eras gone by. Your New Year's Eve ticket gains you unrestricted access to all three rooms and its bars:

Room 100 (The VIP): Behind scarlet colored velvet drapes lies Star Lounge’s VIP room.
The decor is reminiscent of a 1920’s speakeasy with plush chocolate colored suede banquettes illuminated by three magnificent back lit silk screened chandeliers imported from London.

Room 200 (The Club): Star Lounge's smoking hot club. The decor is fashioned after a sultry cabaret but this party is by no means for the shy or the reserved! The banquette and tables are lit from below casting titillating silhouettes of the partygoers onto the walls.

Room 300 (The Bar): Evocative of a swank gentlemen's bar, the epicenter of the revelry surrounds the rich toffee zebra wood bar where signature cocktails named after the hotel’s notable guests are served, including "The Socialite" (Edie Sedgwick) and "The Addict" (Jimi Hendrix). There’s also "The Hooker" and "The Actor"
