THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED All Star Theater Cafe & Speakeasy Restaurant Review

: The ghost of Marilyn Monroe supposedly haunts this dark, cozy, former bar, which is favored by scenesters between 2 and 3 a.m. on weekends. Decorated with old, mismatched furniture, a couple of chandeliers from Liberace’s mansion and a pool table, the place attempts to replicate the faded glamour of the ’20s. The boutique sells glittery gowns once worn by the likes of Joan Crawford and Katherine Hepburn. In addition to specialty coffee drinks, you can order light café fare.
