ONE80 GREY GOOSE opened its doors in January 2011, a few months after the Amway Center opened its doors in busy downtown Orlando. The owners were inspired by famous rooftop bars in bigger cities, like Las Vegas, New York City, and Los Angeles. The lounge is partnered with the city of Orlando and the basketball team, Orlando Magic. Many may ask, what does the 180 stand for in the name ONE80 GREY GOOSE Lounge? It was decided when considering the environment in the lounge provides guests with a complete 180 from the environment in the sports arena below.
