Name speaks for itself. Great craft brews on tap, multiple weekly specials (wings, PBR) Complete with pool table and stripper pole.

The stoner fries or buffalo wings are good.

Was there for a friend's going away party. Cool old-school atmosphere, plenty of room. There is a back room with a stripper pole, which is, well, fun for some? Anyway, certainly kept things interesting. The service was nothing amazing, but they did have a good special - $5 for a beer and a shot of Jameson, which is good considering Jameson usually costs $5-6 all by itself. A decent selection on their late-night food menu, though there was nothing special about the fried pub fare.
An ok experience overall.

I'm thankful to live close to Five Star Bar, because it saves me on the cabfare I would spend if I couldn't walk there. I am a fan of rock music, and Five Star is all about the rock. Their decor is that of old rock posters and concert materials. The soundtrack is befitting of the decorations and the theme. The last time I was there, I thought the DJ was playing my personal iPod. When it's warm, they have a great outdoor patio to enjoy their great selection of beers. When it's time to pack it inside, I'm entertained by the in-house stripper pole that gets more fun to watch as the night goes on. I've never eaten there, but some of my buddies rave about the mini sandwiches and buffalo wings. I usually end up getting there a little after dinner time to enjoy the drinks.

What's up this "luxe rock n roll" shite?

I don't know if this place is attempting to legitimize the rich posers who stroll in.... or capitalize on the popularity of once taboo (yet always enviable) rock n roll lifestyle?

Okay okay maybe I'm overanalyzing. On to the "review" part...

Three stars because...
* The DJ on Thursdays is pretty damn good. Great mix of old and new tunes - very enjoyable.
* The interior design is actually pretty sweet. I was impressed. And yes, I actually think the backroom with the stripper pole is kinda fun and different .
* Late-night food menu
* $2 HIGH LIFE PINTS - this place's saving grace because everything else is expensive (i.e. $4.50 for a *well* gin and tonic that didn't have much gin in it).

Otherwise.... No Thanks to:
- the overdressed (or, ahem, UNDERdressed) hotties and their gel-loving bros.
- the completely disinterested (read: unattentive) bartendress
- dudes that were obviously there to get laid (hello - it was a THURSDAY for crying out loud).

Five Star wasn't as horrible as I thought it would be and I might show my face on a Thursday night but god help me if I get dragged here on the weekend. I can only imagine the horror.

They have the coldest beer I've had in a long time, great service and the food was really good too. Thanks for bringing something different into the neighborhood.

I'm an industry worker and often go out on sundays. I usually find myself at this great establishment. Not only is the interior awesome, they have a wide selection of, my favorite, scotches. The service is great and you will find other industry workers drinking their saturday shift off. I feel like Five Star raided my music collection, rock, punk and emo, they've got it. The food is great and offers something for everyone. I'm not a meat eater, i love their veggie burgers and hummus.

Pros: Decor, staff, selection

.

My friends and I stopped by and ended up staying until close. We like bourbon and beer so this was our spot and is now our favorite hangout. The music is awesome and the decor is cool without being uncomfortable. I highly recommend this place to anyone at anytime. Get there early because the seats fill up quick. Thanks Five Star for opening a cool local bar nearby.

I randomly checked out Five Star on a Saturday night and it was a pleasant surprise.
It was easy to find a comfy booth and the service was very attentive. The music was loud but good and the t.v's were playing live rock concerts . It was a great place to start off the night.
