Transportainment is becoming quite popular today and entrepreneurs are trying to come up with the craziest ideas possible to make sure people have the time of their lives! Nashville has always lived up to the party and tourist scenes, with their Honky Tonk Party Express buses and the Pedal Taverns, but they've just one-upped themselves with the latest addition to the list, making Downtown Nashville the place to be. According to Fox 17 Nashville, there's a new kind of mobile party experience, one where you’ll need a swimsuit to give it a try.
Any guesses what it's called? It's called the Music City Party Tub. “There’s nothing like it, probably anywhere in the country,” Music City Party Tub Owner Guy Williams said. Williams had been out of town for a few years, and when he moved back to Nashville, he was quite impressed by the transformation of lower Broadway, so he decided he wanted to be part of its success, too.
“Everybody has a great concept downtown, but I wanted to be unique,” said Williams. “I did not want to do what everybody else was doing.” That's when he decided to refurbish a trailer from 2015, and remodeled it, complete with a tub in it! And the best part of the tub is that the water in the tub can be adjusted according to people's preference. It can either be cold, or hot. Now, that is quite a unique feat!
For those worried about hygiene and safety, don't worry. William added that the water in the tub will be partially changed twice a week and fully changed once a week. He also mentioned that chlorine will be added after each party, filters will be cleaned daily, and UV sanitizers will be running as well. This is a unique and clean way to party till you drop (in the tub) and several people seem to be on board with the idea.
Bart Fields, who operates a transportation cart downtown, says he completely supports the party tub concept. He thinks this will be a good attraction, especially for tourists visiting Music City. “They want the executive experience. They want to be special,” said Fields. “They come here to spend money, so if there’s a new and improved way to earn that money, then let’s go for it.” He also said he went through the state for proper permits to drive a slow-moving vehicle through certain parts of the city.
William wants to start off with 10 to 12 tours a week, with each tour containing around 8-10 people. “It brings lots of money, it brings a lot of attraction, not only from a few states around, but now we’re getting attention from people from California, from Chicago, from New York that come here, and they want to have a good time, and business is booming everywhere in Nashville, so why not keep it going,” Williams said.
As for the cost of the ride, if you're to book a ride from Tuesday through Thursday, then it will cost $400, Friday through Saturday will cost you $480, and Sunday rides are $425 (Holiday weekends, though, will be an extra $25). You can also reserve the tub by paying $100 for up to 10 people. Should there be more than ten, then you can just pay an additional $15 for each person, and the tub can only accommodate a maximum of 14 people. Also, each ride lasts nearly two hours, and of course, it's BYOB!
