Since the rise of a global pandemic, people locked down all over the world are looking for ways to connect with the outside world. Better yet, connect with a world of their imagination. As the stresses of the everyday mount, you can visit Hogwarts for the afternoon, spend some time in a coffee shop with Natasha Romanoff, or listen in on a rainy night in Gotham City. The YouTube trend of Ambience Rooms has been emerging over the last year with many videos having thousands or hundreds of thousands of views.
The variety of ambience rooms is endless and many last an hour or longer. You could listen to a Paris jazz lounge, but we liked to live in the fantasy of this new content, first. We have collected the best of YouTube’s ambience videos for your favorite fandom.

The Avengers Tower
Video Description: Rain pours heavy against the glass of the sky-rise. The Avengers are scattered around the room: on the balcony, on the sofas, shooting pool, and playing the odd board game. You join them in their games or lounge on the couches, listening to bits of conversation, or, perhaps, you try to get some work done. Every so often someone pours themselves or you a drink and, sometimes, as is inevitable with the heroes, they break out into an argument.
Coffee Shop Date with Natasha
Video Description: Rain pours outside the warmth of the coffee shop. Inside, jazz music plays for a mostly empty cafe. Nat finds you at a table, working or enjoying the warmth of your drink, and sits across from you. She speaks softly, stirring her drink from time to time and flipping through a magazine, as a lone barista makes coffee, collects dishes, and upkeeps the shop.
Peaceful Rain on Gotham Rooftops

It is a very large castle located at the center of the North, from where the head of House Stark rules over his or her people. A small Godswood is enclosed within the walls. It is the regional capital of the North under Jon Snow. The castle is located alongside the Kingsroad as it makes its way from the Wall to the capital of the Seven Kingdoms, King’s Landing, more than a thousand miles to the south. It is situated atop hot springs which keep the castle warm even in the worst winters. Winding tombs below the castle contain the remains of Stark kings and lords and record the history of the ancient family. According to maester Luwin, there are hidden passageways built in the castle so its Lords could escape. The castle has stood for millennia.

Translated, its name means “Land of Darkness”.
