The opening of One80 Grey Goose Lounge in Amway Center raises the bar in downtown’s nightclub scene.

^ Located on the top deck of Amway Center, One80’s outdoor terrace affords not only a panoramic view (below) of the city east of I-4, but it sets the stage for a sophisticated nightlife environment. The focal point of the terrace is One80’s horseshoe-shaped bar (see page 29), which is illuminated like the arena’s iconic tower it wraps around. Throughout the terrace, layers of accent and atmosphere lighting set the space aglow, complementing the sparkle of downtown’s nighttime skyline.

^ Dividing the terrace north-south is a long, curved built-in bench seat accented with blue pearl granite and glass tiles. Lori Leudtke of Panache Design created the intimate conversation groupings by adding facing cushioned couches with white woven frames and matching ottoman tables. Vertical propane-fed fire torches lend kinetic warmth to the setting.

^ The indoor lounge has a vibe all its own, which may have something to do with the volume of the music (loud!). Defining the interior are white leather couches, some in semi-circular shape, set on thick shag area rugs in gunmetal grey. Oversized planters filled with blue-painted bamboo, and funky chrome and crackled glass light fixtures overhead give the lounge an edgy, contemporary feel. But it’s the glossy white bar that’s the room’s real showstopper. Ever-changing lights bathe the bar in vibrant colors, lending a lively sense of energy to the indoor space.

A Twist on Tiffany

The new Laurelton Hall wing at the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park beautifully displays the life and works of Louis Comfort Tiffany. This new wing illustrates that Tiffany was far more than a stained glass artist; he was also the quintessential interior designer. He designed his own homes, furnishings and decorative objects, including pottery.

Original Tiffany works are rare and expensive, and you won’t find any for sale at the museum’s gift shop. But there are Tiffany-inspired home décor items in the shop, including a rustic pot (above; $75) with an Art Nouveau silhouette reproduced from the three-handled pottery vase that Louis Comfort Tiffany displayed in his Laurelton Hall living room. It’s crafted of unbreakable, rough-textured resin in green, with undertones of gold. The original pottery piece is on display in the new wing. Gift shop: 407-645-5316; morsemuseum.org.
