Whisky Saigon Opens Saturday, Dining Slated for 2014

Fist-pump now, eat later. This Saturday, November 16, Gypsy Bar will reopen as Whisky Saigon following renovations that modernized its style and introduced Funktion-One surround sound. That's a big deal for audiophiles - the Funktion-One, used in famous clubs like Space in Ibiza and Marquee in NYC, received Best Club System honors in the 2013 DJ Mag Tech Awards. Future-looking playthings sound like they'll be a centerpiece at the new international-vibe nightspot, which is also promising "state-of-the-art special effects" and "the most innovative club experience in the city." But here's another promise: food. A rep for Whisky Saigon tells us that its restaurant component will be ready to roll out after the new year. Until then, dancing will have to do.
