As if “Netflix and Chill” hadn’t gone far enough with its own song, condoms and Goose Island beer, the meme now has a designated listing on Airbnb.
According to the description, the room is fully equipped “to experience ‘Netflix & Chill’ the best way possible.” That “best way possible” includes: a Netflix and Chill Bed, minibar loaded with liquors and mixers, AppleTV with a Netflix account, surround sound speakers and a view
overlooking Manhattan. Surprisingly, the listing provides no “Netflix and Chill” essentials like condoms, spliffs or R&B mixtapes.
Bringing the joke to reality, one of the room’s artists, Tom Galle from Art404, told the New York Daily News that the room wasn’t designed strictly for sex—even though the room has a champagne bar and we all know what “Netflix and Chill” really means.
The romantic, and totally chill, room in NYC’s West Village starts at $400/night, quite the pricetag for a Saturday night—the only night the room’s available—with that Tinder date who’s definitely DTF and still hasn’t seen Master of None. Of course, if it takes a little more than “Netflix and Chill” to set the mood, the West Village’s loaded with candlelit restaurants, jazz clubs, that one dive bar where you challenged an NYU kid to Scrabble, and pretty much the
backdrop to Sex and the City—activities for later.
If you do end up reserving for a chill Saturday night, just make sure you keep your “chill” in check because you don’t want to end up like another Airbnb story.
