Luckily for viewers and fans of the much-loved HBO series like me, Sarah Jessica Parker is partnering up with Airbnb to offer much more than a simple closet tour, instead throwing open the doors of the Perry Street brownstone to the public in a chance for an overnight stay in the lush pad.
For a mere $23 a night — in honour of the 23 years since Sex and the City first aired — Airbnb is offering two one-night stays for you and your guest.
With cosmos at the ready, guests will even be treated to a virtual visit from Carrie herself. They’ll be encouraged to relax and “live out your Sex and the City dreams,” whether that be writing your own column at her desk, waiting by the phone for Mr. Big to call, or delving into the next level wardrobe.
Airbnb have replicated the abode with incredible detail, and SJP assures “you’ll love the reminders of Carrie you will find scattered throughout.”
The experience doesn’t stop as you exit the brownstone; guests will be treated to a styling session and photoshoot, and of course the chance to wander down the street into Chelsea or take a look at the art displayed in the Studio Museum in Harlem, to which Airbnb is donating proceeds of the collaboration. The contemporary gallery houses a collection of visual works by artists of African descent and offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city you’ll be at whim to in your November stay.
You’ll need to be quick to snap up a spot, of course. Airbnb is releasing bookings for the NYC pad on November 8, and Sarah Jessica Parker is gearing up to welcome guests into Carrie’s world on November 12 and 13. Mark your diaries now.
Those who don’t manage to nab a spot, will have to wait one more month for their SATC fill. The highly-anticipated next chapter, And Just Like That, is coming to Sky Comedy and NOW in December, it was recently confirmed.
Meanwhile, for anyone wishing to live out their main character energy a little closer to home, BLOOM Gin is hosting a Friendsmas bash in central London in Bridget Jones’ actual flat. Cocktails will still be flowing as there will be a mixologist on hand, matching pyjamas and a pre-loaded Netflix account. The festivities come as this Christmas marks 20 years since the release of Bridget Jones’s Diary, and with Friendsmas celebrations on the rise — research suggests as many as one in five adults aged 21-38 were spending Christmas day with friends in 2018 — there’s plenty of reason to celebrate. Groups of up to six pals aged 21 and over can win a festive bash by entering their most hilarious Christmas-themed anecdotes at bloomgin.com/friendmas.
