For a memorable Laguna Beach New Year’s Eve, stay out of the downtown fray and slink down south to the Starfish Speakeasy (formerly Starfish Asian Cuisine).
The boys at the front will know you’re a member when you knock three times and say “red lotus” for entry. (Otherwise, get outta here, you copper.)
Ring in the New Year in 1920s style at the Starfish Speakeasy Soireé. Gangsters, flappers and silent screen stars are welcome for an evening of decadence and scandal. Bring your gang, too – as long as they’re behavin’, Starfish will treat them as family, too.
For a little warm up, Opium Hour (the famous Starfish Happy Hour) runs 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. The party starts at 7:00 with live DJ, a full menu available all night, and free flowing bubbly for just $15/person. Dancing shoes and reservations are recommended. Get on the horn: (949) 715-9200.
