If you’ve been looking for a place to get some work done and eat Jamaican jerk wraps while splayed on a plush white banquette, your dreams have been answered by SW ATL’s Funkshion Factory. A sprawling toil/chill haven for creatives, it’s got electrical tape spelling out words like "Inspire" and
“Duct Tape” "Motivate", and magazine photo collages of Angelina Jolie, Rick Rubin, and Rupert Murdoch, which’ll encourage you to also become successful, Post-haste.
There're two wifi workspaces: one with counter seating next to outward-looking windows, and another with couches and lockers. You can also reserve the 25-man conference/workshop room, and they'll have an in-house cafe come April with coffee, tea, and a Jamaican chef to make those jerk wraps, which’ll surely go down easier than the ones from Tom Hanks' hip-hop poser son Chet.
Because working is actually the worst, there's a "red room" lounge with a long white banquette for hanging out, fashion shows and live musical performances in the 6000sqft event hall in back (with an overlooking VIP area upstairs), and a mini gallery with pieces from local artists like the moody Corey Whitehead, whose work will cause you to exclaim "this is zit!"
Tomorrow night they'll offer tours and host art installations, as mobile cigar lounge Lashes and MustASHES brings in a humidor so everyone can smoke stogies at the grand-opening event they're calling "Red Pumps & Hard Bottoms", or what Rupert Murdoch calls "the headline for most of the Post's better stories involving Oscar de la Hoya".
