Here’s How and Where to Rent a Warehouse for a Day


There are more than 10,000 spaces for rent by the hour on Peerspace.

Looking to rent a warehouse for a day? We get it! Warehouses aren’t just for work anymore. The main activities in warehouses have changed dramatically in recent decades, as manufacturing industries moved away from urban areas, leaving behind the warehouses they once used to store goods. People have nabbed up these large, abandoned spaces, turning them into creative spaces to suit any style and need.

In fact, many of these former factories and storehouses have become artistic and cultural centers, with artists and entrepreneurs moving in to claim these affordable spaces. For example, both Los Angeles and New Orleans are known for their restaurants and galleries set in revitalized warehouses. Entrepreneurs in these cities saw the value of taking a raw space and turning it into something beautiful and purposeful.

Luckily, on Peerspace, our creative hosts are doing the same thing, revitalizing spaces and listing them on our platform for people to enjoy for their personal and business purposes.

Now, nearly anyone can rent a warehouse for a day to host a memorable event of any kind in any location. And you can find these repurposed warehouses for rent by the hour on Peerspace. As the largest online marketplace for hourly venue rentals, Peerspace makes it easy to book one-of-a-kind spaces for personal events, business needs, and productions.

So if you’re thinking of renting a warehouse for a day, you’ve come to the right place! Check out why this may be an amazing option for you if you’re planning an event or production.

Why rent a warehouse for a day?

First of all, why would you want to rent a warehouse for your professional or personal event? Aren’t they old, industrial buildings that are cold and drafty and covered in peeling paint?

You’d be surprised.

Many former warehouses have been turned into modern production studios for art and video projects. In contrast, others are fully equipped event spaces with gourmet kitchens and the latest A/V gear.

For your business

There are a few reasons why warehouse venues are so appealing. First, they’re a blank slate. An old warehouse may need some touching up at first, but you can do whatever you want with it after that.

Paint it any color you like. Tear down the interior walls to build a coworking space. Create a pop-up restaurant or a performance venue.

For productions

Warehouses can also make amazing production locations. For example, a theater company in New York turned three adjoining warehouses into an immersive performance of Shakespeare’s Macbeth! Warehouses really help you let your creativity flow. And because of their typically immense size, you can envision hosting gatherings small or large with ease.

Of course, if you’re just renting a warehouse for a day, you won’t get to redesign the place. But since they are such magnets for creatives, you can rent a warehouse that has a style and atmosphere that seems practically tailor-made to your event.


No matter its style, you will still have more freedom to make a warehouse “your own” than you would at any other venue.

You can park a food truck outside the loading dock to feed your guests, bring in a sculpture or artwork that won’t fit into a standard art gallery, or clear out the room for a goat yoga class.

A bit noisy? No problem!

Because warehouses aren’t in residential neighborhoods, there are less likely to be complaints if you throw a late-night party or make a lot of noise on a woodworking project. (Still, that’s not always the case, so it’s a good idea to check with your host to find out what’s allowed.)

Singular style

Many people also like the aesthetics of warehouses. There’s even a name for it: industrial chic. Exposed brick walls are used as the backdrop for photoshoots, while pipes and beams can be incorporated into the design of a kitchen or coworking space.

Also, warehouses have a lot of windows, which makes them great for productions. Even if you aren’t into the industrial-chic look, you can still make use of the natural light.

So, what kinds of events can you host in a warehouse? As you can tell, pretty much anything. If you want a blank slate for a wedding or birthday party, consider a warehouse venue. Rent it out as a production studio for a photo or video shoot. Host a yoga workshop or dance class.

Warehouses are also great for pop-up shops, pop-up dinners, pop-up art galleries, and more. Many have loading docks that make it easy to bring your gear in and out. They’re also suitable for team-building activities and off-site retreats for corporate groups.

To recap, you can rent out a warehouse for a variety of activities, including:

  • Weddings
  • Birthday parties
  • Musical performances
  • Pop-up shops/dinners/galleries
  • Photo or video shoots
  • Creative workshops
  • Yoga classes
  • And more!

Once you’ve decided on a warehouse venue as the setting for your event, how do you find one? A few years ago, you might have had to speak with the property owner and negotiate a deal in person. But nowadays, it’s easier than ever to book a local venue on Peerspace.

Simply click the link, enter your location, and see what pops up. Use terms like “warehouse” and “industrial” in the keyword search engine if you need to refine the results. Then examine each space’s listing to see its high-def photos, upfront pricing, description, list of amenities, and reviews from past reviewers.

Many venues offer the option to book instantly, but you can always reach out to your local host if you have any questions before or after you book. Hosts can also typically help out with any other logistics, such as renting equipment or booking a caterer, so be sure to reach out with any requests.

Some warehouses come with modern amenities, such as Wi-Fi and a kitchen, but it’s always a good idea to double-check the listing if there’s anything in particular you need. Remember to use the search filters to sort venues by event type, location, price, amenities, and any other parameters you have in mind. And don’t forget to expand your search to include warehouse venues in rural areas.

How much does it cost?

Initially, warehouses attracted artists and musicians because the property was cheap. Now that these spaces are in higher demand, you can expect prices to be similar to other event venues of comparable size.

That said, costs vary widely based on the location, how big the venue is, and its amenities. You can be sure that urban warehouses in big cities cost the most. Luckily, Peerspace venues all list the pricing upfront, with no hidden fees or charges of any kind.

Let’s use our warehouse examples from above to illustrate the range of warehouse rental prices.

New York, NY

The New York waterfront warehouse is the most expensive on this list, costing about $1450 per hour with a 10-hour rental minimum.

But keep in mind what you get for the price in terms of location and amenities. It’s on the water in Long Island City, providing perfect Manhattan views. It also comprises 5,500 square feet of event space, more than 600 square feet of kitchen space, and 1,300 square feet of outdoor terrace space.

In the simple words of one Peerspace reviewer: “Great host. Great space. Would book again.”

Los Angeles

The architectural plex-glass warehouse in LA costs $450 per hour and has a 10-hour rental minimum. As you can imagine, it is best for productions rather than events, with its color-changing LED lighting grid making a superb backdrop for music videos, fashion shoots, and more.

In the words of a choreographer who booked a dance video shoot here: “It was epic! Thank you! Jeremy was awesome and really made the experience incredible. The space is insane. Thank you!”

San Jose

Conversely, the production studio in San Jose costs $149 per hour with a three-hour rental minimum. This is a very popular spot for productions, so that’s vital to keep in mind as well.

In fact, book a project here and you can make use of the LED car tunnel, moving headlights, infinity mirror room, and a 40′ LED wall.

According to one Peerspace reviewer, this warehouse has a “Really nice set! And the host and workers were very respectful and helpful. Definitely would book again.”

New South Wales, Aus

Similarly priced to the San Jose warehouse studio is the large industrial warehouse space in Marrickville, NSW. It costs $170 per hour and has a four-hour minimum. Thanks to its high ceilings and concrete walls and floors, it provides a modern and raw setting for productions and events.

Since it operates as a professional production studio, the host also offers you optional add-on equipment, like lighting kits, backdrops, LED panels, and more.

Miami / Houston

The stunning multipurpose production warehouse in Miami and the central location warehouse in Houston are similarly priced, at $250 per hour with a four-hour minimum and $259 per hour with a six-hour minimum, respectively.

Both of these venues also have tons of five-star reviews and a charming, distinct ambiance. We love them as options for your next large-scale event, but they also work well for productions, too.

Toronto, Canada

The Toronto concert-ready warehouse gallery costs about CA$595 per hour and has a five-hour minimum. This is a high-tech space with state-of-the-art sound and visual equipment, so that could explain the steeper cost. Plus, you can even book a photographer, a makeup artist, a production team, and more when you hold your event here.

A Peerspace user who booked a video shoot at its Toronto warehouse had this to say in their review: “Amazing Space/ Staff And Adel Is So accommodating”.

London, England

Finally, the all-white event and production warehouse in London’s east end is £115 per hour and has a four-hour minimum. It is spacious and has an array of features that make it ideal for both professional and private events. It’s basically a huge blank slate, so let your imagination run wild!

In the words of a Peerspace user: “Host was very responsive. The space has a lovely warehouse vibe with lots of different textures to work with.”
