3401 K St NW (Water St.)
Ed. Note: The Berliner only opened up next door/underneath Gypsy Sally’s about a year ago. I haven’t heard if the building sale/condo conversion will affect them. Stay tuned.
Thanks to all who messaged us. I keep forgetting to post this from Gypsy Sally’s:
“As you may have heard, our landlord recently sold the building where we have resided since 2013. It will be developed into condominiums. With great sadness, Gypsy Sally’s will have its final load-out on January 5th, 2020. Until then, we plan on conducting business as usual with a full calendar of great music for you to enjoy. Stay tuned for info in the coming weeks regarding John Kadlecik’s plans for our final show. It is only fitting that John should preside over our send off, and we are honored that he will be hosting our closing festivities.
To our employees, fans, patrons, musicians, promoters, friends and families, we want to extend a heartfelt thank you for your support over these last 7 years. We are privileged that Gypsy Sally’s was your go-to-place for music, friendship, and gathering. Thank you for giving us this chance of a lifetime and for walking on this journey with us. We hope to see you in the coming weeks so that we have the opportunity to thank you in person and maybe swap a few memories. It has truly been a long, strange, and wonderful trip…Peace, David and Karen.”
Gypsy Sally’s Facebook notes: “History of Building: 3401 Water Street, NW was constructed in 1938 by the Crystal Ice Co. Its structural engineer was Melvin S. Rich (1885-1969) who designed the structural steel that encased the Washington Monument in 1933 that allowed the exterior to be repaired and cleaned.”
