Downtown Turlock's Vintage Lounge & Piano Bar will reopen in a new location tonight, as the piano bar has completed it's long-planned move from 110 to 130 E. Main St.
The new venue for the piano bar is the old site of Fontis Spa & Salon, less than a block down from the lounge’s old spot.
Although many essential aspects of the lounge are expected to remain, such as light appetizers and live entertainment including music and comedy shows, the Vintage Lounge will add dancing to the new venue. The Turlock Police Department recently approved a dancing grant for the new building, one of only a handful in the city. The lounge’s dress code will continue to be enforced.
Lounge-goers tonight can dance the night away in a larger venue at the reopening, as today Vintage Lounge staff hurried to finish the last-minute details. The new venue holds up to 196 people.
According to the lounge, they held a soft opening for the new venue with friends last night. But the first official customers of the new Vintage Lounge, Hano Yadegar and Tony Alahverdi, sat down this evening for their first drink to christen the bar for the public.
After the opening tonight, the new location is expected to be open from 11 a.m. until 2 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday, closing a half-hour later than the old site. The Vintage Lounge will only open Sundays and Mondays for special occasions.
