Editorial Review of RadioStar

It's difficult to dismiss the impression the 1980s made. Love it or hate it, this decadent era is ripe for revisitation, and has been exhumed from its time capsule at this hip Lincoln Park destination.

Serving as headquarters to dance party/theater extravaganza "The Awesome 80's Prom," RadioStar's expansive space glorifies all that is gaudy. With the exception of a darkened seating area on the room's southeast side, this place is a new-wave, neon-worshipping wonder. Behind the bar there's a wall-to-wall mural/collage of '80s icons (including John Stamos) worth the price of admission, and in the bathroom you can enjoy blast-from-the-past graffiti.

But decor is not RadioStar's sole source of historical accuracy. The DJ booth blasts hits that conjure flashbacks of an MTV that actually played music, and the cast and crew of the aforementioned improv show model '80s fashions and lingo as if they never went out of style.

RadioStar's only inadequacy is its hours of operation. They revolve around "The Awesome 80's Prom" performances, meaning there's no way to experience this cultural time warp without purchasing tickets to the show. And at a minimum of $49.99 per person, that makes this club a retro romp that is far from inflation-proof.
