Gold Star is a big city bar with a local, dive-bar feel. It’s no-hassle and pleasantly average, making it a good place to grab a drink before the real night begins. Their two pool tables are good time wasters, but pool sharks tend to marginalize the fun on the weekends with legit competition. There’s also a superb jukebox, odd furniture to sprawl out on, and popcorn on the tables to pick at. The drinks are cheap but note this place is cash only. Plus, the bar is supposedly haunted.
