Acucraft Panoramic Gas Fireplace Featured in HBO’s Westworld

HBO’s hit series Westworld has quickly become one of the network’s most watched original TV shows. With settings varying from a wild-west desert, technologically advanced laboratories to romantic, comfortable lounges and apartments; each one specifically designed to engage the audience. So when watching Season 2, Episode 2 we were pulled into the dark, sultry atmosphere of the popular Indigo Hotel 18 Social lounge paired with the dancing flames and rich ambiance of an Acucraft custom panoramic fireplace!

The Indigo’s top floor cocktail lounge, 18 Social is a prohibition themed lounge featuring stunning views of Los Angeles, old Hollywood decor, and an Acucraft custom gas panoramic fireplace as it’s focal point. Designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates and Webcor Construction to be a “modern interpretation of 1920’s aesthetics” made this the perfect backdrop for Episode 2 of Westworld. Although 18 Social was not created to be a film set, the sophisticated ambiance of the decor and gas fireplace made it the perfect match for this scene.
