The Stone Bar came under new ownership in 2010, which means both the crowd and the interior are much less flamboyant (the exotic Thai/Asian fusion that used to embellish the place has been streamlined with a more simple look and its popular Thai-lady drag nights are long gone). The crowds are still as animated as ever, however, thanks to some top-notch promoter events including DJ Adam 12's hip-hop night AFEX on Thursdays, which brings in a hip, multi-culti mix and the occasional star sighting (Stevie Wonder, Salt N Pepa's Spinderella). Private parties make up much of the schedule and everything from after-concert events to magazine- sponsored shindigs and one-offs usually of the electronic-music ilk fills the place. A nice-size dance floor, decent sound and ample (if not quite cheap) bar selections continue to make it a viable multipurpose music and dance pit. There's even a smoking patio in the back, though it might be one of the smallest, narrowest ones in town. Most patrons puff out front.
