I love conversation. I love reading. And I love TV. I like good comedy, great drama, live sports, and the news. So there are times when I prefer to be kept up-to-the-minute with current events on TV, and there are times when I prefer to be present with company without the distraction of a TV (or, often, multiple TVs).
Finding that balance within the Club at Wingtip has not been easy. I can certainly say that the balance we’ve struck in our main bar & lounge will never please everyone (we only have two TVs, but one of them happens to be 90″). As we were developing the amenities for the private parlor rooms, we wanted to give members the ultimate choice: TV or not TV?
Wingtip’s parlor rooms recently welcomed the arrival of products from Electric Mirror, a Washington-based manufacturer of lighted mirrors and mirror TVs.
Electric Mirror’s mirror TVs are more expensive than TVs of a similar size, but it’s a simple trade-off from my vantage point: a mirror TV may be your only hope for a place that would otherwisebe TV-less. What do I mean? Let’s say you want a TV in the bedroom, or over the fireplace in the living room, and your significant other doesn’t want a TV there. If you’re smart enough to pick your battles, you’re probably not going to fight hard for the TV. If, however, your SO is ok with a mirror that doubles as a TV in that spot, then all of a sudden, it’s win-win.
If you’re interested in seeing an Electric Mirror TV in person, make an appointment and we’ll be happy to show them off.
