Very cool, vibey rock space in the heart of Hell's Kitchen... use for small event, photo/film shoot, pop up, podcast, gallery, client meetings, biz event, etc. The space is located in the world famous “Music Building”, former musical home of Madonna, Blondie, Billy Idol, Interpol and Metallica to name a few. The soundproofed space was used as a Rock Music School since 2009, so it has memorabilia, posters, X-Mas lights as the main lighting, no windows, and the lived-in authentic feel of an old school NYC Rock club. Before that, the space was the practice space for the band The Strokes, and dating back to the 80's it was a jam room for the whole building, where the likes of Peter Tosh and Keith Richards jammed. So there is a lot of good Rock mojo in the space. The main room is 400 square feet, but there are two small "lobby" areas, with couches/chairs for additional seating.
The space comes as is, and guests are fully responsible for clean-up. PA is available for all events, with connector for smart-phone/laptop/DJ equip, etc. Full backline (drums, amps, keys) are broken down for events to allow for more space for the event, but are available at an additional $30/hr fee if requested. The space is located on 8th Ave bet 38/39 St, in the heart of Hell's Kitchen/Midtown West and therefore does not have any street parking, but there are plenty of parking garages/lots in the area. The space is one flight up from the ground floor, accessible via one set of stairs. We hire someone to be on hand and on-call for all events in the space, and is included in the fee. They will help on-site, with questions about the space and rules, guests, and any issues that might arise during the event, to help make it a successful event. GUEST RULES: * Please note that event time booked INCLUDES SET-UP AND CLEAN-UP. * Guest who booked the event is solely responsible for the space during event and clean-up. The space must be left in the exact same condition/layout as it was at the start of the event or a clean-up fee will be issued. * Guest who booked the event must be present for the entire event and is in charge of all guests and their conduct, and let them know of the space rules. If someone abuses the space in any way, or becomes an issue or liability, they must be removed from the building, and the person on-call for the event notified. HOUSE RULES: - NO SMOKING in any area of the space (but there is a smoking area on the floor above space). - GUESTS MUST STAY WITHIN SPACE (unless using the bathroom/smoking area) and are absolutely not allowed on any other floor of the building. - NO BEVERAGES ON ANY OF THE EQUIPMENT in the space. - Event must be 21+ if alcohol is provided. - Person on duty for the event is there to ensure safety, and therefore has the right to remove anyone who might become an issue or liability, as well as cap the event if it goes beyond capacity. - IF GUEST NEEDS SOMETHING MOVED in the space, Superintendent must be asked to move item(s) to ensure no damage to the space. - X-mas lights in main room must all remain as is and not partially unplugged. If Guest prefers to have them all off, they can, but must provide lighting. - Everything on walls must remain as is and not removed or damaged. - No confetti or decorations that might cause damage to the space. - No smoke machine use in the space. AFTER EVENT: - Must throw out all garbage in provided trash bag, then take all trash downstairs to the lobby and leave next to main trash can. Make sure there are NO LIQUIDS OR HALF-FILLED BEVERAGES THROWN OUT IN TRASH BAG, or you will be charged for clean-up. - Room must be left completely clean and in the same condition it was found in. There is a vacuum available if needed.

Alyssa S. booked a photo shoot for 8 people
Chris and his location were amazing! Chris was fast to respond and incredibly friendly & accommodating throughout the booking process. John, our location manager was a really cool guy and so helpful too! There is a band practice studio adjacent to the main room, but Chris coordinated for the band to finish up practice before we set up our photography lights and equipment. All in all, a perfect experience- can not recommend Chris+ his place enough! Thank you again for everything!
Sarina V. booked an event for 30 people
Chris and JP were so helpful during the entire process I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Everything went smoothly and the cleanup fee wasn’t even bad like I’d expect out of any other place. Great location for a fun party :)
Emily C. booked a birthday party for 25 people
I had my 24 th birthday here - a studio 54 themed party and this was a PERFECT space. Chris even met with me to show the space before I rented it. He’s an incredibly nice guy. The space was really clean and set up exactly how Chris and I discussed. JP, the super, stayed to help with the party. He was also so nice and helped us with everything we needed. There are rules in this space that you must respect and follow and we had no problem doing so. Chris and JP really made the night wonderful and easy for us. I’ll be booking again!!
Christal H. booked an event for 25 people
Chris was an amazing host! He was so flexible and supportive throughout the whole process, and I would definitely work with him again. He's an all around good guy, and it was a pleasure getting to know him. Beautiful space, very artsy/vibey, and perfect for small scale music shows or jam sessions.
Angel A. booked a party for 24 people
Second time booking this space and once again, beautiful spot. Perfect for little get-togethers. JP (the event's helper) was on-point and constantly making sure the event ran smoothly. I look forward to renting this spot out again!
