The Gig at Exit 33
Verona, New York
The Gig, a 5,100 square foot rock and roll themed night club, part of the Exit 33 project at Turningstone Casino and Resort, is truly an underground club in which the fans become a participant in the show. To enter the club, you must first descend down a grand staircase covered with a patchwork oriental rug from Northern Ireland, reminiscent of the Grateful Dead, and walk by a 30 foot high “Wall of Sound”, made of racks and racks of vintage speakers. The fans are immersed into graffiti covered walls and can shoot some pool next to the sound mixing booth while being “Blown Away” by Maxell’s iconic photographic advertisement. Specially licensed from the photographer, Stephen Steigman’s Estate; it is the largest print ever made of the image at 17’ long by 7’ high. The Gig was nominated as a finalist in the Best Nightclub/Lounge category for the 2014 Boutique Design Gold Key Awards for excellence in Hospitality Design.
