About Us

A local favorite for a reason!

Star-lite — what a Fan bar should be.

Even when other places in the Fan are dead, Star-lite has a pulse. Our year round patio dining, with homemade favorites every day and a delectable selection of specials, draws a great local crowd and keeps ’em coming back for more.

Our bartenders and staff are the best in the Fan. They don‘t do that avoiding-your-eye-contact thing, and they know how to keep the booze and music flowing. Become a regular and they might just have your drink ready before you sit down.

We‘re located just off the Boulevard, walking distance from Cary Town and the Museum District, or a short drive or bike ride from VCU and downtown. Star-lite is the perfect place for a quick bite, a drink with friends, or (if it‘s the weekend) the best brunch available in all of river city.

Our History

It‘s Star-lite now, and hopefully forever. But this location was originally home to Soble‘s and his famous burgers from 1987-2000. Devil‘s Kitchen was next (but only for a little while) and then we took over in late 2001. Ever since, 2600 West Main Street has been Star-lite . . . just the way we like it. As a tribute, we still offer the famous “Soble‘s burger” and of course — if it ain‘t broke, don‘t fix it — we‘ve kept the neighborhood bar atmosphere that‘s kept this place so popular in the Fan for decades.
