We had a wedding in this space. Erin was our primary contact and was extremely communicative and helpful. The space felt like more than advertised and everyone of our guests agreed the venue was beautiful.
My husband and I had our wedding celebration here... and it was honestly the best decision we’ve ever made. Playa Studios is the most incredible space! Erin, Conrad, and Adam were beyond accommodating to everything that we wanted and were true professionals. Through the whole process they kept communications open, helpful and warm hearted. Start to finish, they helped to make our wedding reception an unforgettable night. Every detail of the space is BEAUTIFUL and designed with such unique character. Through all of our wedding research, we can honestly say there is nothing in the LA area that compares. All 260 of our guests had nothing but incredible things to say about the venue! We loved every single second of being in the environment and working with these people. Thank you guys for creating the absolute best experience to be remembered for the rest of our lives. 100% recommended for anyone looking for a unique, incredible space. Thank you, Playa Studios!
We cannot express how grateful we are for the lovely week we had at Playa Studio. Everything was brilliantly organized, there was so much room to spare, the setup of the room was gorgeous and better than we could've imagined, and the feedback from our guests was nothing but stellar. Thank you so much for your patience, your accommodations, and for meeting all of our requested needs. We will be sure to recommend your event space to anyone who's looking for one in the future!
This place is stunning! What you see in photos is exactly what you get, if not more. The space is large and roomy, but it still feels warm and intimate. The interior design, audio/visual amenities, and general flow of the space all get an A++. Working with Adam and his team was very easy-breezy. He was accommodating, informative, and helpful. Our event (as with any production) had a lot of unplanned situations pop-up, but he was a total team player about it all. Love this place and would def book again :)
This space is absolutely amazing! Recently had my daughter’s 3rd birthday in the space and everyone loved it. Adam made the rental process very smooth and easy. Will definitely be renting again!
Adam, his team and the PLAYA STUDIOS are amazing. Subscription Insider hosted our annual Payment Boot Camp and couldn’t be more pleased. They helped us with many details and made sure the event was successful. The location was very central for our guests. And most importantly, everyone who attended really enjoyed the experience. 5++ Stars. Thank you, Adam!
My husband and I had our wedding reception at Playa Studios. The experience was absolutely amazing. Adam, the owner, was a pleasure to work with and was extremely helpful from beginning to end. Adam was flexible in allowing my husband and other vendors to visit to space multiple times while planning our reception details. The space is so eclectic, yet allows you the freedom decorate to the max and/or choose a simpler decor. My husband and I went with the idea that less is more, especially because the space is already so amazing, we didn't want to mess around with it too much. Our reception had about 100 people, but the space is huge and can fit much more. All of our guests were raving about how impressed they were with the reception and the event space. I highly recommend using this space for any large party/reception - you can do so much with it and it is so easy to work with. Again, Adam was unbelievably amazing and so helpful! Definitely consider this place for your next event!
