ESPN Party at the Playoff Atlanta
This years ESPN Party at The Playoff was held at the historic Atlanta Freight Depot. It featured hundreds of train related props and various knick knacks from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. The shelves at the main bar and the steam room were very popular with guests because all the memorabilia transported them back in time. One of the coolest features at this unique party was the fact that there were three massive spinning locomotive wheels placed within metal grates in the middle of the room where the bar area was located. There was also a couch grouping in that same area to provide some seating, and it sat under a silver truss structure. The industrial aspect of these ancient steam horses was the inspiration for most of the design. This spectacular sports event was bathed in lots of antique steel and metal complete with wear and tear. We wanted to emphasize just how hard working these giant trains were back in the day. The old school decor turned modern as guests made their way deeper into the event towards the End Zone. Chic modern design and pop art ruled that area. The walls in the End Zone were covered in photos of various football players and teams printed to look like iconic Andy Warhol art. Merging the modern with the historic was no easy feat, but we managed to pull it off in style. All in all, the ESPN Party at the Playoff in Atlanta was stunning!
The main room was furnished with tobacco sofas and a mixture of square, circle and rectangular silver and gold framed glass tables. Metal frame glass communals with galvanized barstools added plenty of functionality and continued the industrial design aesthetic. The drink rail had brown leather barstools and a large antiqued locomotive art piece. The steam room also had plenty of character. Black swivel barstools added comfort and rugged charm in the area. The All State Lounge featured steel blue sofas with gorgeous rectangular silver framed glass top coffee tables. The bold colors and sleek decor gave this section a fresh vibe. To keep things interesting the modern End Zone area had jet black sofas with square silver glass top coffee tables, marble top communals and translucent silver barstools. It was the perfect mix of modern design and pop art that everyone loved here. Most of the lighting in the main room was bright red. It looked amazing reflecting off the textured brick walls. Red lighting was also used in the steam room to tie in design between the two areas. Dim blue lighting was used in the Allstate Lounge to compliment that areas bold color design and to give guests some slightly different eye candy. The main attraction in the End Zone was an awesome football sculpture in the middle of the room. The huge sculpture was lit with multicolor rods all the way around it. This made it pop against the darker black furniture in the area. Each event area at The ESPN Party at the Playoff had its own spirit, and the most active area was the dance floor. Phillip Phillips performed gave the guests an amazing show. He kept the crowd grooving all night long. It was really great to see everyone having such a great time. The ESPN Party at the Playoff is always an awesome event full of excitement. The entire 15|40 Productions team looks forward to it each year.
