More exciting details are starting to emerge about the full service, four part VIDA Fitness Center coming to Navy Yard mega-complex The Yards. Although renderings of the rooftop Penthouse Pool & Lounge and underwater themed Kids Zone attached to the gym have already seen the light of day, this is the first look anyone has had at the interior of Bang Salon. Its color scheme is decidedly more metallic than the bright red used in the sister sites at Chinatown and Metropole. Both the ceilings and the mirrors at the 15 styling stations are a silvery gray. The design on the walls, but for a bit of purple, recalls kaleidoscopic film wizardry from a 1920s black and white film. Bang co-owner Nikki Esoldo says of this color scheme, "Bang's new design aesthetic perfectly complements the eclectic atmoshere of this rapidly evolving Capitol Riverfront neighborhood." Now, time to anticipate the renderings from the adjacent Aura Spa. Construction has already begun on the project and Bang Salon is scheduled to open in mid-July.
