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!
