A First Look at Playland Motel.
Me, some artists, designers, chefs, music heads and friends.
Athena Calderone, John Rawlings, Shantell Martin
– The Super Collective.
Nektarios, bringing the outside in and on...
Not gonna lie, I wish I thought of this...Fede Saenz - Brilliant.
A true artist, with undoubtedly the best lighting.
The detail in George Alan's room is incredible...Room No. 8
"What if 1980's Don Johnson drove a 1950's woody?
Don Johnson's Woody."
Melanie Dizon + Marina Burnil. "Beauty is conveyed through principles of symmetry, proportion and harmony."
Drink responsibly at Playland - Pat Conlon.
A Hotel Life/Jess Baker creative production - "If my yacht dreams collided with a Wes Anderson movie".
Room No. 9 A Hotel Life, by yours truly with help from Jess Baker.
A Hotel Life - Lighting/Zebra in the sky detail.
Chef Whitney Aycock sporting the latest Weeah/Playland T.
Playland has shared bathrooms and showers,
but that's part of the fun isn't it?!
Kate Pane's Coconut Castle - "A hot and heavy girlhood frolic with glitter, sunburn, ponies and wet swim suits."
"I want to share your dreams" teepee by Wavewam.
Athena Calderone and John Rawlings' brillant room. The bar at Playland closes late, very late, shutters...genius.
Nadia Kaufhold's room, "My Bloody Dreams" has a 4 man hammock splayed across the room...complete with animal masks!
My Bloody Dreams - Madia Kaufhold - The opulence
of baroque spaces, with a twist.
The Playland Motel has a huge deck for BBQ's and DJ's with
some key programming from Liv Spencer.
The heart of the operation. Wood burning pizza oven with the
guys from Rosarito in charge of the restaurant.
Liv Spencer, Robin Scott, Nadia Kaufhold and Aussie Andy.
It's a suitcase full of tunes.
George Alan - a proud man. In front of
his room, Don Johnson's Woody.
Ok, use your imagination...take out window, restaurant + bar entrance...one block from the ocean.
The beautiful and geometric room from award winning menswear designer Simon "Santos" Spurr.
Highs + Lows
The Playland Motel is dedicated to giving back to community programs in the Rockaways, so you can party guilt free...and the more you spend, the more will be given back.
The rooms are individually and brilliantly designed by incredible artists and designers, so you never have to have the same experience twice.
We love pizza from a wood burning oven, we love Rosarito, so we love pizza from the guys from Rosarito.
You can get here on the A Train...and get home on the A train. It runs all night, so can you.
Are shared bathrooms really part of the fun?
