From the creators of Vanity club in Las Vegas comes a unique experience in the heart of San Francisco, Gitane. Mr. Important, the San Francisco based Interior Design firm specializing in creating indelible restaurant, nightclub, retail and nightlife experiences delights us with a take on history, art, language and diverse experiences from the gypsy culture.
The word Gypsy derives from Egyptian, similarly to the Spanish Gitano or the French Gitan. It was a name given to those who came from a far away land as nomads or to describe someone as exotic. To be gypsy is to be a member of an ethnic minority that is difficult to define. This patchwork of groups can be best described and identified by attitudes, behaviors and culture. Whether the origins are believed to have come from Asia or Africa, they all possess a sense of exoticism, mysticism and diversity.
