In pictures: Airbnb hosts party on its floating house

Airbnb moored its two-bedroom floating house at Canary Wharf last night (20 May) to host a one-of-a-kind house party.


Guests including Pixie Geldof, Amber le Bon and Bombay Bicycle Club attended the event. They were treated to cocktails including the Absolut Airbnb, which was made using Absolut Kurant, Cointreau, lime juice and cranberry.

Airbnb partnered with minicab booking and comparison app Kabbee to transport guests to and from the event in style.

The floating house has been making its way down the River Thames since Monday (18 May), when it embarked on a maiden voyage alongside the Houses of Parliament.

Over the course of the week it has passed neighbourhoods including Chelsea and Westminster, as well as hosted a series of community events.

Airbnb will open its latest activation up to one lucky winner and three friends tomorrow (22 May), who will have the opportunity to stay the night on the floating house.

They will enjoy to spa treatments from on-demand app Priv and a private dining experience with food prepared by Robert Ortiz, who heads up Michelin-starred restaurant Lima Floral.
