Don't be misled - Star Bar was completely renovated and changed ownership in 2009, so the older reviews aren't accurate!
Star Bar is now a swank, modern gem, with huge cactus outside, and great lighting, tables, and booths inside. It is packed on weekends, but not so much that you can't find a place to hang out. The bartenders are friendly and fast. There are TVs indoors. The outside was recently renovated to feature fake turf, like that used at pro football stadiums, under the horseshoes games. This is a good place to take work colleagues to happy hour, or to take friends after a show or game, or when you want to go out and party. You will find mainly young professionals, in their late 20's to late 40's here, but there is a variety of bar patrons. Many are regulars. There is large indoor area, and front and back patios to accommodate the weather and your mood. I highly recommend - Star Bar has staying power and will be a fixture on W 6th for many years.
