The Lights are on!

Welcome to the Vango Lounge and Sky Bar in Center City.Walk past the night spot at 116 South 18th Street, and it looks like so many other Center City places.

Inside, you get the idea right away: this is a one-of-a-kind place.

The bar is dominated by a nine-foot chandelier, one that you will not see anywhere else. It took the owner almost two years to get it there, from conception to installation. He spent close to a half-million dollars.

It uses 25-thousand strands of fiber optic cable.

Backstage, a surprisingly-small electronic box makes it possible to change the light display.

Vango plans a red, white and blue display for the 4th of July, and red and green for Christmas.

In fact, you will see a different lighting theme every night of the week.
