If you binged the entire season of The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix and now find yourself obsessed with ‘60s style and chess then you’re not alone.
The show, featuring Anya Taylor-Joy as chess-prodigy Beth Harmon smashed the record for the most-viewed Netflix limited series last year.
And, the aesthetic has lived in our dreams ever since…
Now, if you want to immerse yourself in your favourite show, you can stay at a retro hotel which is inspired by the Queen’s Gambit.
Did you love The Queen's Gambit? Tell us in the comments…
The stunning suite is set at 21c Museum Hotel in Lexington, Kentucky – the town where much of the show is set.
It features sumptuous mid-century style decor with retro drinks trollies (obviously), chess-inspired 1960’s wallpaper and a chess board.
Oh, and that’s not it…
Named The Harmon Room, after the central character, the beautiful suite also features a giant chess piece on the ceiling – recreating her pill-induced hallucinations.
So you can plan your moves for your next chess match before you sleep.
Travel guide Visit Lex explained: "We've partnered with 21c Museum Hotel to bring the stylish mid-century appeal of The Queen's Gambit – the hit Netflix series set in Lexington – into the present day with a meticulously designed boutique hotel experience inspired by the show and its pause-worthy retro interiors.
"Custom flourishes, like chess-themed wallpaper created especially for the room, add to the mod magic."
The room sleeps two people and you’ll be given a guide to local landmarks, locations which featured in The Queen’s Gambit and a complimentary “Lex Liquors” tote bag just like Beth has on the show.

Unfortunately, the coronavirus crisis and the approaching third lockdown means now isn’t the time to fly to the US.
But, fingers crossed this makes your must-see list for when the world opens back up.
