High-End Nightclub, Gypsy Bar, To Open In CityScape

Where else can you bowl a strike, walk a few steps to an adjacent, high-end nightclub and cross your fingers in hopes of not striking out? CityScape — and Gypsy Bar, which will be connected to Lucky Strike Lanes, is adding its name to the already-hip roster of nightlife hotspots in the downtown Phoenix area.

“In light of the overwhelming support we’ve received from the public since opening Lucky Strike in downtown Phoenix,” says Steven Foster, owner and CEO of Gypsy Bar and Lucky Strike, “we’re thrilled to be rolling out yet another fun nightlife experience.”

At more than 10,000 sq. ft., able to hold approximately 380 people and open seven days a week, Gypsy Bar, according to Foster, will provide guests with “great DJs and a dance floor to an adult-oriented game lounge and a delicious menu.” And, with neighbors such as the US Airways Center, Chase Field and ASU’s downtown campus, he adds that “it’s exciting to be a part of the area’s continuing evolution as a nightlife destination.”

A full-service, upscale nightclub, Gypsy Bar will offer a full menu, which will include a variety of items from tacos and hamburgers to lobster and prime rib, as well as specialty cocktails, premium beers, VIP/bottle service and entertainment. To take it a few steps further, guests can also expect state-of-the-art video systems on either side of the DJ booth, as well as carbon dioxide, confetti cannons, snow and various lighting effects surrounding the dance floor.

As for the “fully-loaded” game lounge, it will feature 40 arcade games, including 2 Minute Drill, 2 Fast & Furious, Deal or No Deal, Guitar Hero, NBA Hoops, Pac-Man Battle Royal Deluxe, Super Bikes and Super Cars. Guests of Gypsy Bar can purchase an electronic rechargeable game card, which will accumulate reward points, and redeem prizes ranging from iPods to Pez dispensers.

Or, for those who plan to take it easy, dine and socialize at the three-sided island bar or on the contemporary lounge sofa sections.

Gypsy Bar’s Grand Opening party, Commotion, will take place on Saturday, October 6 at 10 p.m. The VIP pre-party begins at 7 p.m. DJ Roonie G, who blends both audio and visual content and considered one of the best video DJs, will be performing.
