In the space where SIX Lounge once set the agenda for Valley nightlife, Steve McDonald has opened an upscale, Western-chic spot for drinking and dancing, kind of swanky honky-tonk.
The new club has a more open layout than the previous lounge and the obsession with modern, minimalist chic nowhere to be found. Revolver is warm, inviting and done in a mix of creams, browns, coppers and beiges.
Brown faux-alligator skins cover the front of the main bar and the walls behind the new secondary bar. One wall is covered in rough-cut wooden planks, while others are a warm cream, and the wall behind the main bar is covered with three oversize gilt-framed mirrors that convert to flat-screen TVs with the touch of a button.
Other clever touches abound, including gun silhouettes etched into the concrete at the door, and a digitized black-and-white photo of Clint Eastwood from “The Outlaw Josey Wales" with his guns pointing at the bathroom doors. MacDonald kept the automatically fogging glass restroom doors from SIX.
But the biggest changes were knocking down the walls that made Six a VIP club and a main club, and moving the DJ booth to a prominent tower that faces the entrance.
