It's bright, to say the least. The Flatiron lounge is littered with florescent stars—and not just the ones that light up the sky. The walls are covered with Warhol-esque murals of pop stars such as Paris Hilton, Angelina Jolie, and Eminem. Is it disconcerting to have Paris watch over, Big Brother-style, while you imbibe? A bit. But it's kind of fun, too. A long mahogany bar runs the length of the front room, while upstairs, you'll find booths, a DJ setup, and another bar. The large specialty-drink menu is reminiscent of Star Bar's predecessor, Tiki Room, with an array of fruity drinks, both frozen and blended—like a mind-numbingly sweet Cosmic Oasis ($10), made of pineapple and mango rums, Bacardi Light, pineapple juice, and pina colada mix. The bar menu is upscale and satisfying—try the Little Dipper (vegetable tempura) and the Moon Walk (a cheese tartlet), about $10 each. As the night wears on, the crowd morphs from after-work suits to a trendier downtown scene. It's a tongue-in-cheek take on celebrity-worship.
