Stunningly Mid-Century Gypsy Lounge Pendant Item # R8057
Rescued from the now-defunct Gypsy Lounge, a Portland, Oregon establishment that fed and watered local rabble-rousers for 67 years, this remarkable pendant is as wacky and fun as the restaurant in which it used to hang. Because of its location in a residential neighborhood and the popular fishbowl-sized beverages highlighted on the menu, the Gypsy often attracted the negative attentions of regional politicians. Despite decades of pressure from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, the Gypsy continued to serve patrons in its brightly colored retro-themed bar and lounge until its closure in 2014.
While the Gypsy first opened its doors in 1947, the retro-bohemian theme was probably set when the bar changed locations in 1963. This pendant, likely installed during the 1963 update, features a classically mid-century finish combination of brushed and polished aluminum. Originally, the pendant would have hung from an enclosed pulley (hence the polished aluminum handle encircling the shade), but we've removed the pulley hardware so that they fixture remains stationary.
A special light like this requires a place of prominence. We hope it will someday grace the banquet hall of a retro-themed hotel or bowling alley, but would be just as happy if it ended up as the focal point in your checker-boarded man-cave.
