Classic Flame makes some really nice looking and feeling fireplace pieces. I know you’ve seen some cheaper ones in some of the larger retail places like I have, but what I didn’t know is that they made some stuff that is pretty “Heirloom” feeling as well. The Party Time Fireplace fits somewhere in between that spectrum. It is really nice, it is well built and it is small enough to fit in a dorm room, bedroom, or small apartment/house living room… OR MAN CAVE! This is why we thought it would be a great idea for the 2013 Father’s Day Gift List. When the PR team at Classic Flame pitched this story for the Gift List we instantly agreed. They knew what guys liked… cold beer, movies and video games… They said “Hey we have the perfect product”. They were right.
Putting it together is another thing that a guy likes to do. You get around with a bunch of friends, you all talk about what you would have done if “I built this it would have a secret door with a special stash for my cookies and $150 bottle of brandy”… an hour later you’d all be watching television on the couch in the basement playing with the remote control to turn on/off the fireplace.
I don’t know what size television the Partytime is rated for, but we put a 70” on top of it and it was pretty stable. We then proceeded to test it by drinking beer and watching the game. It was a great way to kill a lazy Tuesday afternoon, catch a game that we recorded Sunday… and I mean all of the guys agreed it was awesome.
The fireplace is an electric insert that has a heater and a fan in it. The LED lights mimic a real fire and it looks really cool. It completely changes the vibe in a room. What’s really awesome about it is you can run the LED lights without the heat so if it’s hot you get all of the nice atmosphere of a fire without the heat.
So what new contraption is Classic Flame going to come up with next? I got one… maybe a slot on the top to keep the pizza warm??!?! (If anyone uses that idea I want a $1 from each sale! Or at least free pizza for life).
I have no problem giving the Party Time Fireplace by Classic Flame a solid 5 star out of 5 star rank. It was a blast putting together (easy peasy) and it was a lot of fun relaxing with the guys reviewing the features.
