Harry Denton's Starlight Room at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel will be closing its doors on Monday, July 18th for a complete renovation. Denton a.k.a. "The man who views life as one big party" opened Starlight Room in 1996 with its iconic 1930's throwback sense of glamor. When the bar and lounge reopens, according to the press release, it'll sport "a whole new look and feel."
A good time to say goodbye to Starlight as we know it would be this Sunday at the last Sunday's a Drag brunch in the current digs. The brunch spectacle will continue throughout the renovation in the nearby Franciscan Room. No word yet on how long the mini-shutter will last, or what exactly the "new look" will be like. Stay abreast of progress and the reopening date via Facebook and the website. UPDATE: Harry Denton's people tell us the Starlight Room is slated to reopen in early September.
