Cool NYC Hot Spots With Their Own Recording Studios




Looking for a place where you can rock out at home. Well, we've just learned about a collection of some of the coolest spots in NYC that offer recording studios and performance spaces for performers and budding musicians to practice at home, without having to worry about a renting a studio. Read on to check out a few notable options.

Two Fifty West 81st

Two Fifty West 81st, a new condominium on the Upper West Side, features a recording studio designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects and Altmann Productions. This studio offers residents the state-of-the-art technology found in a professional recording studio, with electric baby grand, Tama drum set, Epiphone acoustic guitar, Behringer soundboard, sound booth, and a designated space to arrange, compose and mix. The developer, who performs in a rock band on weekends, took the lead on creating his dream music studio, inspired by the rich musical history of the Upper West Side.

Music Room NYC

5 River Park, the first new building in this Brooklyn megaproject, has over 20,000 square feet of amenities for only 25 residences, ensuring that you will rarely be fighting for time at their immersive music room and performance stage. Or maybe building neighbor Norah Jones could stop by for a quick lesson. River Park, located near the waterfront in Cobble Hill, is also close to the Brooklyn Academy of Music and surrounded by live music venues.

One Clinton Music Room

Located in Brooklyn Heights, One Clinton is a limestone tower with 134 residences, most with incredible views over the harbor, Manhattan and Brooklyn. Of their extensive amenities, including a Sky Lounge on the 26th floor where all residents can entertain, there’s also a sound-attenuated multimedia room where residents can practice music, including a setup of drums and guitars. There is also a setup to use the space for entertaining, with a private movie screening and bar.

The Kent Music Room

The Kent on the Upper East Side has a “sound lounge” designed by Lenny Kravitz, who dabbles in design on top of his musical sensibilities – the soundproof space has a dancefloor and musical instruments curated by Kravitz himself.
