The well-known Park City venue keeps the name, and completely renovates interior to fully upgrade the live musical experience

The Star Bar re-opens this week under completely new ownership with a full musical line-up for the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The 6000 square-foot Star Bar located at the top of historic Main Street is completely remodeled and redesigned making it a modern upscale nightclub experience drawing national and international artists.

“The Star Bar is thrilled to offer the best JBL sound system in the state,” said Bill Johnson, one of the venue’s operators. “Our patrons will be pleasantly blown away by the complete remodel of the new Star Bar,” he added. Johnson says The Star Bar will fill the void that has long existed on Main Street for quality, live music in a more intimate environment with a capacity of just over 500.

The January line-up launches on the 17th during the 2013 Sundance Film Festival this week featuring big-name acts such as One-Republic, Matishayu, Paul Oakenfold and the highly anticipated solo performance of Academy Award Nominee Courtney Love.

The renovation also enhances the bar’s sound quality by featuring a JBL VerTec sound system. The main floor has been dropped by more than 2 feet using the original floor, which had been buried since 1997. The lowered floor has created additional room volume and has added to the overall sound experience. Guests will enjoy two four-station bars, a new main stage, state of the art lighting and completely remodeled restrooms and green room.
