Established in 1928, Starlite stands as a historic and revered cocktail establishment within the heart of San Francisco. Known for its association with prominent figures such as Harry Denton, Alan Ginsberg, and Herb Caen, the venue is a frequent figure in the city's cultural narrative. Now, after decades of legacy, Starlite is poised for a resurgence, with plans to reopen its doors in January 2024. This chapter promises guests panoramic vistas of San Francisco from its vantage point on the 21st floor of Beacon Grand, a Union Square Hotel.

Underpinning this restoration is a conscientious effort to preserve the stories and experiences woven into the fabric of the establishment's history. The reinvented interiors and conceptual direction pay homage to the past, while beckoning a fresh chapter in its storied journey.

Starlite is looking for a select team to collaborate with new ownership and its esteemed partners to evolve its legacy.
