YouTube recently opened the doors to its "first-ever experiential house," which was introduced to New York City as the YouTube House. As YouTube notes, the pop-up is not just a place for watching videos but a community for people to come together to connect and enjoy music, food, culture and fitness experiences. Even so, the pop-up is a place where people can gather to watch content in HD and access more than 60 networks showing sports, the news and more.
Naturally, the YouTube House features various rooms, including one for gaming and virtual reality entertainment, as well as the YouTube Kitchen and an area for YouTube Wellbeing that features content creator The Fitness Marshall and his unique approach to exercise called "fitertainment."
