it’s officially holiday season! As someone who lives in a one-bedroom apartment in New York City, host a large group (although it’s something I enjoy), has never been on the cards. Although I have chosen to unite people in restaurants and karaoke bars in the past, it’s not the same to have a full-blown party with friends.
This year, things changed after I found pair space, which I refer to as the Airbnb for accommodation and entertainment. Yes, that’s exactly what you’re thinking. The site has a selection of unique places, from shop windows a rooftops—throughout the Big Apple that customers can rent for as little as $28 per hour. There are even spaces owned by content creators, like Rachel Martinowho rents out his impressive corner loft in Brooklyn in an hourly rate of only $98. (If you were recently inspired Serena and Lily’s pink vacation home by Kemble Interiors in Palm Beachthis may be the place to make your own vision come to life).
For my night of celebrations, I went with a beautiful art gallery a $150 per hour located in the heart of Greenwich Village and featuring expansive floor-to-ceiling windows and 1,000 square feet of guest space. The experience couldn’t have been easier: I arranged a time with my host through the site, showed up with food, drinks, and even a artificial christmas treeand the festivities were underway.

Come on, have you ever heard of being able to rent an art gallery in Manhattan for such a good price? Plus, it came with cleaning supplies, glasses, a table, and a bar cart.
The most important thing to keep in mind is that most of the spaces are empty, so if you are interested in the decorationPlease create a budget for these details and additional time for setup. I brought a Christmas tree to grow and savebright game ready amazon tableware and a green tablecloth because I had a limited budget and I knew I could get it all together quickly. Also, there may be amenity fees such as site visits and additional equipment rentals (in the case of the gallery, large pieces of art) and, depending on the reservation, you will need to explain your event to the host before it is approved. This is to ensure that the space can accommodate your party plans and the number of guests you are inviting.
