NYC Studio Space: What’s Open Now

Looking for studio space? During the pandemic, many studios are open in NYC!

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted artist performances, but there are currently open studio spaces in New York City. If you need to rehearse, gather with safe distancing, or even film content for a virtual event, check out Pentacle’s list of open NYC studio spaces, below.

Most of these NYC studio spaces charge a fee; check the list for current pricing. Some rent by the hour and others by the day, but they all have health guidelines — from mask-wearing to restrictions on participants — so do double-check before arriving. And enjoy being back in the studio!

Check back often for open NYC studio spaces during the pandemic.

Pentacle will update this list regularly so you’re always in the know about studio space!
