Vango

Media Title

Vango Lounge & Sky Bar is the boldest of Philadelphia's restaurant lounges starring some of the best names in the food and DJ business. The massive oak doors and portal windows below and the dramatic roof deck view of the city above are the first thing one notices, but there is much more. Vango is as massive a space as it was an undertaking to get just the right custom made elements from around the world to fill the big rooms. Everything in the restaurant seems to be unique and personal and the restaurant was planned by several prominent designers. Along the walls of its second floor walkup, there's over two hundred carved out spaces into which is an illuminated vodka bottle. Along the second-floor walls is crinkle-crushed-velvet spectacularly speckled by a zillion inlaid lights. There are even custom-made and upholstered cushioned couches, grand dramatic archways, and an in-laid "wall vase" where over two hundred roses bloom nightly. The chandelier is a sprightly sparkling one-of-a-kind fiber-optic chandelier designed and made in Germany and built in the U.K. Vango's year-round roof deck third floor has an indoor patio and a lounge bar for the cozy fireplace romantics. And there's a bold large flat deck with private rooms for chilling, king size beds for lounging, a wide dance floor for kicking up your heels and a sky to gaze upon. The menu, consisting of Japanese Continental cuisine, adds the perfect foodie flourish to Vango's princely proceedings. From appetizers as simply sumptuous as Beef Negimaki and Seared Bacon Scallop to fresh sushi and sashimi platters to large plates like Ishiyaki Eel with Seasoned Fish Egg to Kobe Beef Steak with Sallion to Briased Short Ribs with Wasabi Mashed Potatoes all appetites will be appeased. Washing them down with Vango's specialty cocktails - variations on familiar themes like the Vango Bellimi and the Vangohattan - should help. In addition to the amazing decorating and scrumptious food, there is a dance floor and a nightly line up of the very best DJs that Philadelphia has to offer.
