As if you needed yet another reason to party, the inflatable nightclub is the latest trend (mainly thanks to TikTok), but kind of the genius idea to throw a rager without having your actual house trashed. Here’s everything you need to know!
It’s time for another installment of Trendy AF and this time around we’re covering the hype around the Inflatable Nightclub trend. Yes, really. So grab your favorite cocktail or choice and let’s see what this is actually all about.
Have you ever been to a party and thought, “Damn, I wish this was outside, lit up, and had a bouncer?” Well you’re in luck. Almost. In a world where more and more people are spending their days and nights outdoors (thanks Ye Old Pandemic!), it only makes sense that people are buying inflatable party clubs in droves. They’re definitely on the more expensive side, but can totally be worth the investment – especially if the goal is to keep people out of your actual house.
So, let’s define what an actual inflatable nightclub is. They’re basically ginormous blow-up “buildings” that tend to mimic an actual club, come equipped with built-in lighting systems and even sound systems. Many will come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, depending on what you need and based on what kind of accessories you’re into – you could even have tables, indoor lamps, a bar, velvet rope and so much more.
Like with everything, everyone has become pretty obsessed with these inflatable party houses thanks to the gazillion people on TikTok. In fact, the hashtag alone has garnered more than 380 million video views. Yes, we said more than 380 MILLION. And people aren’t just stopping there either. There are more than 320 million views on inflatable churches (for real), and more than 400 million views on inflatable party houses overall. As you can see, the possibilities are endless.
But when it comes to these popup nightclubs, they’re really most popular with millennials who are still into clubbing, but don’t feel like having to wait in long lines (out in the cold) or go to “da club” itself. Plus, it makes them feel more like a VIP and provides them something more intimate, while still being a blast and totally social.
While there are companies that can rent these – if you’re into the idea you may want to just invest in your own that you can use for a wide variety of fun events like birthday parties, graduations, holiday events – or if you just want to use it in the winter as a place to party and hang out with family and friends. You just need to make sure you have the space for it!
Ok, so full disclosure. We are not millennials around here. But, we totally love this idea and, quite honestly, want to be invited to an inflatable nightclub party. We’re not sure we’re really ready to shell out the dough to purchase our own, however. So, for us – we’re going to say screw it. But, if you have an inflatable party house and want to invite us – feel free to drop us an email and we’ll likely show up.
If you’re looking to give this a go, check out our picks for some of the best inflatable nightclubs you can actually buy (so far) in 2023.
EDITOR’S TOP PICK
1. The LED Inflatable Nightclub Party Cube
Dimensions: 26.25-Feet (Diameter) x 16.5-Feet (Height)
It’s the club of all clubs! This is our personal favorite (although we’re not in love with the price). It comes in 5 different size options, 10 units of LED lights, 2 doors and windows – along with sandbags, rope, stakes, etc. The one pictured above can hold, on average, 61 people standing/dancing or about 33 people seated. Again, there are additional sizes you can choose if you don’t need something quite as large or quite as expensive.
2. The Inflatable Nightclub Party Dome
Dimensions: 30-Feet (Diameter) x 15-Feet (Height)
Perfect for a wedding or just that party you’ve been planning with the neighborhood. You can currently choose two different sizes (30′ x 15′ or go with the smaller 20′ x 10′). Colors and lighting can be added as well.
3. The Inflatable Club Tent
Surprisingly a more affordable option, this one comes with the blower, sandbags, ropes, LED lights, the LED light remote and more. They’re currently offering a few different sizes and even come customization options if you’re feeling fancy.
4. The Black Cube Inflatable Party Tent
Now this is the party house if you’re having a major event! Unfortunately, this one doesn’t come with the LED lighting, but for the price you could always pick up some yourself on the cheap.
