Stardust Lounge

The new Stardust Lounge in Thornton Park brings a Rat pack, Vegas-style lounge to downtown Orlando. 

Located beneath Post Parkside on Central Blvd., this bar definitely brings a new vibe to the usual Wall Street bars downtown.

Drinks average about $5-6, pretty reasonable considering. The bar has low ceilings, lots of seating and even a few pool tables in the back room. Expect to see the typical Orlando crowd.

I think Stardust is encouraging skimpy attire on the ladies by keeping the A/C to an absolute

Check it out for yourself. The bar is open 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily.

    By the way, when I went the crowd was definitely not “typical” Orlando.

    I just went here tonight for the first time, and I friggin’ love the place! Tons of character, great atmosphere, and awesome “happy hour” specials.

    @Brian If you’re looking for dance/house music, you’ll probably wanna go elsewhere.

    I’ll definitely be going back to Stardust.

    @V I really want to go now. Sounds like a place that’s “not the norm.” Maybe I’ll try to get by there in the next coupla weeks.

    I finally went and LOVED IT!

    @Brian- it’s a retro-inspired ‘lounge,’ meant as a throw back to the Vegas style hang outs of Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr days – a classy night life of smoky, dimly light martini-clutching type folk- and it says that right in the name of the joint ‘Stardust Lounge’ have you ever heard of Las Vegas’s famed Stardust Hotel?

    I don’t think it’s meant for ‘house’ music 🙂 I didn’t notice any specific kind of dress code, I just went after work one day for a few drinks and the music was fun: Aretha Franklin, Temptations, some later 70’s, some Sinatra, some 50’s

    It’s a definite change from the dives on Orange that play the same 12 songs over. and over. and over. and over. and over. I loved it.

    @Brian I still haven’t been there yet, but your “review” certainly isn’t making me eager to.

    Sucks that you didn’t have a good experience.

    JG, I never said that. I don’t live in Thornton Park, but I have lived downtown for the past 6 years and I frequent both that area and the bars on Orange. Every bar goes through cycles of popularity, even those directly on Orange. The point I was trying to make is that bars directly on the main drag (Orange) have a greater exposure to people than those in Thornton Park. I hope it does well, I thought it was a nice change of pace.

    KIM- Why would it have to be on a particular street in downtown to be successful? Obviously, you do not live in Thorton Park, nor frequent its establishments there…

    I actually live at Post Parkside, and see the ‘cool cats’ hanging out…surprisingly, the music doesn’t reach up to my apartment, which is 7 floors about the Lounge!

    Haven’t been there yet, but I really want tooooO!

    It’s not associated with the other place it is owned by those cats that own the Beacon. i like it there cause it is such an eclectic crowd….and really pretty inside.

    Not sure if it’s associated with any other Stardust Lounge, but it was fun. I’ll be curious to see how long it stays popular since it’s not on Orange or Church.

    Cool! I hadn’t even heard about this place before now. Like you mention, I’m sure it’ll boast the same crowds that frequent the other downtown Orlando venues, but it’s at least great to have a new option.

    Do you know if this Stardust has any association with the one located over by Audobon Park?
