Custom Renovated Brooklyn Studio w/ Amazing Kitchen and Converted Brick Garage - Dining Events, Supper Clubs, Live Music, DJs, Dance Parties, Karaoke, etc.
sound, lugging, phone locating and just generally making everything run so smoothly. We had such a fun party with a live band playing Latin jazz with some of the best jazz musicians in NY sitting in and this space was perfect in all the ways we needed! A band, stage...
Christoph B.
Loft-like roomy, contemporary and deluxe, wood-floors, meeting / dining / performance-space.
Highly recommended. The space is as advertised and goes even beyond that. It has a small stage, equipment for live streaming a good sound system etc. But the most important thing is, it has Melissa! Melissa made sure we had the best possible service. She cares deeply about satisfying her...
Gina H.
Sound Stage with Multiple Affordable Standing Sets
of any other place that offers all the different sets that they do. I will definitely be coming back to film on the other sound stages. Thanks again...
Anna A.
Beautiful and Spacious Event Studio
The space was awesome! I had a birthday party complete with bartender and it worked well. We had access to the sound system and chairs and stage space. The place was clean when we got it, and there was a minor bit of confusion, but people were communicative and fixed...

First rate sound stage. Alexey is very accommodating and the place is in a safe area

Brooklyn Industrial Studio – 14 Skylights – Drive in Space
This space was just as described, big & clean. We recorded live music and the space had a great reverb that sounded really good in our recording. The hosts were there to help us get in and came back at the end of our session to close out. The only downside...

Downtown Loft Performance/Event Space
but for screenings it worked very well. The screen is smaller than if renting an actual movie theater, but it has a nice stage</b> and sound system (which I used for an intro and Q&A) and fits a decent number of people. I had about 50 guests and although...
Ellen H.
Arts District adjacent Industrial Empty Space
space for our non-profit fundraiser. There was plenty of parking, no sound restrictions, and we were able to use the inside and outside space. We were able to hang art on the walls, utilize the stages, booths, round tables, long table, bar, stools and other furniture. Keith took really...

Fully Equipped Music Studio with Small Stage and Projector
out. I would highly recommend this space to anyone hosting a show. We were a full band and all fit on the stage perfectly, with great balanced sound in the room. We also rehearsed at Music City Rehearsal for a few years and love the space and community vibe. Yay...

Historic Kirkwood Mansion - The Howard House
interview at this location. From a crew-friendliness standpoint, the space could not have been better. We had ample space for >staging our gear and there were zero sound interferences along the way.

Spacious & Peaceful Studio/Loft Space Centrally Located with Excellent Lighting
with Emily, I went through my checklist on where/how to operate, lights, sound, AC, supplies, trash, etc. Everything was in working order on event day and had no issues. We used a backdrop to hide the stage area and since we needed the floor for dancing, we had to roll...

Wicker Park Intimate Bar/Live Performance Venue

Beautiful Spacious Dance Studio
Jacqueline was polite, helpful, and prompt. Sound system is great but uses an aux cord so bring an iPhone converter if you’ll be playing from an iPhone 7 or up! Jacqueline kindly lent me hers. The floor was marked for staging which was great for my class. The mirrors...

Amazing and Versatile Studio Sound Stage for Video, Photography, Podcasts and Live Streaming
