This queen’s Gambit-inspired resort brings the hit present to life
Watch the Queen’s Gambit come to life!
There’s no denying that the Netflix miniseries that debuted last October became an instant hit. The coming-of-age drama revolves around Beth Harmon (played by Anya Taylor-Joy), an orphan who rises to the top as a cutthroat chess player.
The Queen’s Gambit is set in the mid-1950s and 1960s and evokes nostalgia. From the lavish fashion to the colorful decor, it’s no wonder everyone in the seven-part series stuck to their TVs. And now fans can feel like they’re actually part of the show.
The 21c Museum Hotel in Lexington, Kentucky, where Beth grew up, designed one of its rooms as if it had been ripped out of the Queen’s Gambit. The room features vibrant key lime pie wallpaper, linens, and more. The room is also decorated with mid-century antiques, a stocked bar cart and of course a vintage chess game.
According to Architectural Digest, guests will find rare books as well as an itinerary of landmarks around the city featured on the show.
