Harry Denton's Starlight Room

450 Powell (at Bush), 395-8595,

Draped with chandeliers and silk and done up in ruby red and gold tones to create a 1930s opulence, the Starlight Room (formerly the Starlight Roof) occupies the 21st floor of the Sir Francis Drake Hotel, overlooking Union Square. It would be worth a visit for nothing else but the dazzling 300-degree views of the city and the bay, but then there's Harry Denton's Starlight Orchestra, which plays several nights each week (call for the current schedule), and to which one may dance or simply listen without having it wipe out a conversation. Very cool. (The dance floor, graced by an old-fashioned mirror-glass glitter ball, has windows on three sides, offering a panorama of city lights.)
