We’ve seen quirkier Airbnb listings before, but a new ‘Netflix and Chill’ themed apartment in New York City might be the most interesting take on apartment rentals we’ve seen yet. What began as something of an art project has apparently turned into a bizarre money-making venture. And it can be all yours for just $400 a night.
The appropriately named “Netflix and Chill” Airbnb room brings the famed meme to life and is everything you might expect. There’s a bed draped with a Netflix branded blanket and accompanied by, you guessed it, two Netflix branded pillows.
Refinery 29 adds:
The Netflix & Chill Room includes a bed with red Netflix-emblazoned sheets, a fully stocked mini-bar (Champagne, wine, rosé, vodka, rum, gin, whiskey, beer, and mixers), an HD projector featuring AppleTV and Netflix, surround sound, a big bathroom, and a view of the city. If you decide you’d rather stand on a roof and chill, they have that too.
According to Tom Galle, one of the brains behind the Netflix-themed Airbnb listing, the primary goal of the funky apartment isn’t to make money, but rather to create “a project that makes a mark and gets seen.”
Since the listing went live earlier this week, Mashable notes that one person has already reserved the room.
If you’re at all curious about the apartment, the full listing details can be read below.

The room is designed and equipped to experience ‘Netflix & Chill’ the best way possible.
Everything a couple needs to fully experience:
– The original Netflix and Chill Bed
– A fully stacked mini bar: Champagne, Wine, Rose, Rum, Vodka, Gin, Bourbon, Whiskey, Beer etc, soda and all kinds of juices to mix drinks.
– A HD projector connected with the new AppleTV and Netflix account, with remote controllers for both.
– Surround sound speakers around the bed.
– A beautiful view over the city, especially during sundown.
– Access to the rooftop with beautiful New York skyline view.
– Large bathroom with marble finish.
– Great location with a wide variety of restaurants close by, to visit or oder to the room.
ROOF ACCESS: You will have access to the roof with beautiful views of Manhattan both north and south of the neighborhood. The roof is completely finished and has a bench for enjoying a glass of wine or dinner. The roof is shared, but there are rarely other people up there.
Interaction with Guests
There can be as much or as little interaction as you’d like, aside from the essentials (checking in and out). We will be staying in an apartment just one floor above you, so we will be available whenever you have questions or concerns. If you would like more guidance in terms of getting to know the neighborhood or nyc, we are happy to give suggestions based on your interests (or go out with you based on the timing!)
Regardless of the time of year, people watching in West Village is always good. Washington Square Park is a 2 minute walk from the apartment, and there are many other small parks in walking distance. You can grab a bagel and coffee and hang out during the day, and at night there are so many cute places to check out. If you’re into a casual, no frills (but always packed) live jazz place, head to Fat Cat (5 minute walk). Poisson Rouge is also less than a 10 minute walk away, where there are many affordable live bands, performances, and parties almost every day. If you’re looking for something more fancy, there are tons of places – Annisa and Aldea are both within walking distance, and I can always share my nearby favs (Fish and Trattoria Pesce Pasta are always so good).
