East Austin’s metamorphosis into a nightlife haven for white folks continues apace. Gypsy Lounge is one of the newer entries into the suddenly crowded market.
Ran in for a quick cocktail last week and it was fine. “Just a bar” as the old timers in NOLA say when there’s no distinguishing factor to the joint.
The drinks were strong and cheap, the music a typical indie rock mix, standard patio with pic nic tables out back. Maybe they’re banking on the shuffleboard to start magnetizing folks in the door.
