Tucked away in a residential area, Trina’s Starlite Lounge is a laid-back spot with a touch of punkish zing.
The ultra-chill hipsters and art students filing past the basic black-and-brick exterior will find a lively front room, where helpful bartenders behind the stainless steel bar mix up innovative cocktails with names like Blow My Skull Off and Death in the Afternoon.
A smaller anteroom sporting retro artwork and collages of old catalogs provides space for a diverse group of tattooed young professionals, local residents, and grad students to chow down on corn dogs and fried chicken.
Once the weekend rolls around, the Parlor Room opens up to savvy partiers looking to bask in the dark lounge vibe created by the curving marble bar and tattoo art on the walls.
Featuring comfort food and cheap suds without losing its sense of style, Trina’s Starlite Lounge is a cool destination for hip city dwellers who like their dives with a touch of class.
Mix of hipsters, musicians, grad students, and creative young professionals, mid-20s to late 30s+.
Playlists including everything from country rock to alternative beats. Flat-screen TVs tuned to sports.
