Many apartment buildings focus solely on the individual units and less time on amenities that create a true apartment community.
While we designed every one of our apartments to offer comfort, convenience and elegance, we also wanted to create an inviting atmosphere outside each apartment door. Amenities that residents can use to meet their neighbors, form new friendships and heighten the experience of apartment living.
To accomplish this goal, we created Social By 363, our luxury resident lounge.
Providing residents with a relaxing refuge from their busy professional lives, Social By 363 is just waiting for you and your neighbors to host a variety of get-togethers and fun events.
Here are just a few of the many fun ways you can use your resident lounge!
A Better Way To Watch Movies, Sports And Special Events
Seeing a movie, cheering on the home team or commenting on the awards show attire is more fun when you’re with friends.
That shared experience is what elevates something as simple as watching TV to the next level of enjoyment.
Instead of watching the big game, the big blockbuster or the big awards show by yourself, why not gather in the resident lounge with your neighbors?
Not only is it a great way to make new friends, it’s also more fun to enjoy seeing the touchdowns, twist endings and water-cooler moments with an audience.
Plus, Social By 363’s plush couches and armchairs and its glowing fireplace add to the overall enjoyment of the evening.
Crafting with the neighbors is a great way to get into the holiday spirit. It’s also perfect any weeknight when you want to sip a little wine and create your own decor!
Only problem is that even the largest apartments can only accommodate so many individuals.
Instead of trying to cram an excessive amount of your neighbors into your kitchen or living room, simply move the crafting party to the resident lounge!
With multiple chairs, couches and tables, the lounge has enough room for everyone to comfortably spread out. And the lighting makes it easier for everyone to work on their crafting projects.
Best of all, if you or one of your neighbor’s is demonstrating how to perform a certain crafting technique, there’s lots of space for everyone to have a clear view!
Share Your Thoughts At The Book Club
Monthly book clubs are a great way to keep a standing get-together on your calendars. However, hosting them at local restaurants, bars and coffee shops isn’t the best way to keep the discussion going. These venues are often noisy, filled with distractions, and not always accommodating parties that stay for longer than an hour. Plus, they can be expensive.
Rather than hosting your book club at a revolving array of restaurants, enjoy the convenience of the resident lounge. Not only is it just a quick walk away, the lounge is more comfortable, accommodating and appropriate for group discussions and conversations.
Best of all, you can bring your own snacks and beverages to the club – and never have to worry about time constraints!
Everyone Wins At Board Game Night
Looking for a fun way to build a community with your apartment neighbors? Break out the board games!
Scheduling regular board game nights in the resident lounge is the easy and entertaining way to break the ice with new neighbors, establish new friendships and share lots of laughs.
Encourage everyone to bring a game, spread out in different groups and let the fun begin!
If you’re looking for an extra special game night idea, host a tournament. Pick a popular game, form teams and play until there’s only one team standing!
Feast With Friends And Neighbors
There’s nothing quite as special as dining with neighbors. This sharing of food and stories forms the bonds of friendship that last a lifetime.
Introducing a monthly neighbors’ potluck dinner in the residents lounge allows everyone to sample new dishes, trade recipes and enjoy each other’s company.
