Available for private parties and events that are open to the public, we offer everything from easy, no-frills space rental to full-service planning of your event by our staff. Rates are flexible depending on the details of the event. Prior to your booking, our Events Manager will contact you to discuss optional fees including catering, bar service, and hired staff. A complete gut rehab in 2013 transformed our building from an antiquated office/warehouse to the beautiful, modern, airy oasis it is today. Our small, dedicated staff ensures that every client receives personal, tailored service. We have a growing list of happy customers. Our space is flexible and perfect for variety of uses: birthday parties, dance parties, pop-up shops, dog birthday parties, wedding receptions, fundraisers, push-up contests, etc. The building is accessible, and your rental includes three reserved parking spaces along the building. All other parking is free street parking. The studio is a generous 2,500 square feet. Additional highlights include 6 remote-controlled skylights that can be opened for full sun or completely blacked out, 12 ft. ceilings, and an 11 ft. wide drive-in door. Additional perks include a killer sound system, a projector, and rainbow lights that move to the music! In addition to the main studio, the space also features a 500 square foot custom-built conference/chill room with a bar, television, and two mini fridges. We also have a 230 square foot hair and make-up room that can be utilized in a variety of ways during your event, as a place to store jackets or other items, a staging area for catering, a make out room, etc. Located off the 2 Freeway at Verdugo Road, this unique and discreet location is removed from the hustle and bustle surrounding many other studios in the city, and is located just 10 minutes from downtown and 3 minutes from Silver Lake.
Maximum occupancy is 150. A security guard must be present if your event will have more than 90 attendees. If serving alcohol, security guard/bouncer will check the ID of all guests, as well as will the bartenders and any other members of the staff. We have an 11pm noise curfew and 1am closing time. Please leave the studio in the condition it was presented to you. All trash must be removed at the end of the event and chairs/tables returned to their original positions. Any event where alcohol is served MUST be private (guest listed) with complimentary beverages provided by the host. BYOB also allowed. CATERING STANDARDS We highly recommend that a caterer/bartender from the our recommended caterers list be used for your event. Our Recommended caterers have experience working at the Studios and are familiar with our regulations, policies and procedures. Use of caterers not on our recommended list may result in an increased rental fee. Our kitchen is to be used for final food presentation, plating and bussing only. Please note that the Studios does not provide dishes, glassware, pots, pans, knives or utensils. The kitchen production space will be presented in a clean condition and the space should be returned to a clean condition immediately following your event. A final walk-through with a member of our staff is mandatory at the close of your event. Caterers must remove all trash, composting and recyclables from the site. A dumpster and recycling bin is located right outside of the Make-up Room exit. All trash, including sorted recyclables and properly stored compostables must be collected, properly bagged and removed by the caterer/bartender. SITE DECORATION The Studios wants to make every event here a special and welcome experience. Therefore every effort will be made to allow renter to prepare decorations reflecting their creative requirements. No nails, screws, staples or penetrating items are to be used on our walls or floors. Only low tack tape is allowed on our floors and wall. Any damage will be charged after your event. CONDUCT There is absolutely no drug use or smoking of any kind tolerated on premises or within 25 feet of the building including loitering or congregating outside on the sidewalk at any time during the event. Disparaging remarks or any type of physical violence will not be tolerated and will be cause for immediate expulsion. Renter and guests shall use the premises in a considerate manner at all times. During underage events, such as school dances, we prefer that underage individuals do not have in and out privileges. Conduct deemed disorderly at the sole discretion the Studios staff shall be grounds for immediate expulsion from the premises and conclusion of the rental period. In such cases no refund of the event costs shall be made. LIVE MUSIC/DJs/NOISE The Studios encourages music and lots of dancing! However, please be aware that the premises are located near residential units and therefore neighborhood noise regulations do apply. In the event that renter’s event creates a disturbance due to high noise volume, the Studios onsite manager has full authority to ask the renter, DJ or live music presenter to turn the entertainment down and/or off. If repeated disturbances are created, at our discretion, renter may be expelled from the premises or the offending noise will be ended. In the event of disturbances to the point of expulsion, no portion of the event costs will be refunded to renter. Loud music must end by 10 p.m. during weeknights (Monday thru Thursday) and by midnight on weekends (Friday and Saturday). Additional time can easily be added provided the volume is modest and it cannot be heard beyond the boundaries of the property or by immediate neighbors. *Noise Ordinance: All music and noise is subject to California’s 24-hour noise ordinance. Renter assumes responsibility for any noise-related tickets or fines.* LOAD-IN/LOAD-OUT AND STORAGE All load-ins and load-outs must take place within the designated timeframe. We are not responsible for checking in or handling any items brought into the venue by rental companies. All excess material (such as bubble wrap, boxes, hangers, plastic, etc.) created by deliveries must be removed and disposed of by rental company, client, or client’s representative. Limited storage is available upon request. Storage fees will be applied to any items left overnight or beyond normal load-in/load-out times. This also applies to items left post event for shipment out via courier.
We booked this space for our wedding reception and it turned out perfect. It’s such a great space and staff was very helpful and accommodating. We did get a hot and sweaty dancing and realized the AC was not turned on at the beginning of the party. Once we got it turned on it was much better. I would use this venue again.
Allie was one of the best stage managers I've ever worked with. She went above and beyond. We loved the multipurpose stage and bar. It really helped w/our production. Just wish this place was sound proof, I'd pay more to be able to come back any time I need a white cyc or cool bar but I'm fortunate for the great prices when I don't have the budget. It's a quiet neighborhood so nothing out of the ordinary. I'd compromise for the occasional car noise for the great service and and price any day.
