In the past, most of downtown Phoenix's opportunities for fun were limited to concert venues or clubs on Washington. Cityscape changed all of that by adding an array of restaurant and shopping options, and plenty of features that make it a stand out location. Nestled in the same complex as Copper Blues, Stand Up Live, and Lucky Strike is Gypsy Bar, which has the potential to be the Valley's newest nightlife hotspot.
Gypsy Bar is not the location of the next season of My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding, in fact the locale doesn't have much to do with gypsy culture aside from the name and carnival atmosphere. Leave your lavish wedding dress at home, and come dressed to the nines because Gypsy Bar is the swankiest place you can go to play arcade games.
The bar shares a building with the Lucky Strike bowling alley, so patrons can play a frame between rounds of brightly colored cocktails. The arcade and restaurant sections are nice places to relax and people watch as folks cut a rug on the huge dance floor.
Saturday, October 6 marked the grand opening of Gypsy Bar and the were there with camera in hand. Check out the luxuriously fun atmosphere in this week's club candids slideshow.
