grammercyhotel.jpgWhen Starlight, everyone's favorite place on Sunday nights for girls to meet girls that like girls on Avenue A, shut down recently, we had no be idea the newest incarnation would be so close at hand. While there isn't a phone yet, Starbar has set up shop in the former gay bar, Cock[tail], all of three blocks north, between 13th and 14th.

If you like to pay more for your chilled lack of inhibition or just watch those that do, head uptown to Ian Schrager's Gramercy Park Hotel. But remember to make a reservation, or, you know, get a room, because the two bars inside, Rose and Jade (glittering like the colors, or the girls, either way, they are both beautiful) don't let you walk right up to the bar without one.
