If you’re a true Sharon Stone fan, you might actually recognize this bar from Basic Instinct. And even in real life, the place is a hangout for visiting movie stars (not so much for wayward homicide detectives). Don’t see any celebs? If they’re here, they’re probably in proprietor Jeannette Etheridge’s invitation-only back room. But if you don’t merit a pass into the inner sanctum, you can still enjoy that peculiarly 1950’s, Fellini-esque pink glow in the main bar while you finish off your “cappuccino” (hot chocolate and brandy).
