Spice Up Your everything. The original Spice Bus from ‘90s movie Spice World—yes, you know that marvelous flick featuring the “girl power”-driven, pop group of your nostalgia dreams, the Spice Girls—was just listed on Airbnb, so your bachelorette party priorities have shifted.
This year, the iconic, double-decker bus will be situated in Wembley Park in London. You and two of your chosen guests will have an opportunity to stay on the bus for two nights from June 14 with checkout on June 16. Of course, the updated bus comes with new amenities and renovated spaces that scream “girl power”—at least visually with a neon light installation surrounded by Union Jack cinema chairs.
“The Spice Girls were my childhood obsession,” Airbnb host Suzanne Godley says in a press release to The Knot and others. “My parents were subjected to my tone-deaf performances as Baby Spice, and I must have watched the Spice World movie hundreds of times. And while I have grown up over the years, I don’t think I’ve ever grown out of my love for them.”
She adds, “When my boss mentioned that he was considering buying the Spice Bus I was desperate to be a part of its renovation. We’ve worked hard over the past few months to turn the bus into a home, in keeping with its legacy, and I’m so excited to open it up to the public with the support of Airbnb. Being part of this project has been like a dream come true and I can’t wait to meet other Spice Girls fans through this experience.”
It will be the first time the bus has been available to the public to stay on. The exterior is exactly what you’d remember from the movie with its Union Jack covered painting.
The booking fee itself is only £99 a night (a little over $110 a night in USD). The only issue is exclusivity in terms of timeline and access. Currently, the available dates for the bus are limited to the nights of June 14 and June 15, and it will open at 8 a.m. British Standard Time on Wednesday, May 22.
What will give you an edge? “I’m looking for guests who share my love of the Spice Girls, have a verified Airbnb profile and have great reviews!” Godley adds in the listing.
If you’re in the market for a unique bachelorette party that throws it back to the ‘90s, run, don’t walk to book the bus before you say “Too Much” and “Goodbye.”
