Host is friendly and responsive. Check in is easy. Private parking is available. Space has cool lighting for videography needs. Has a green room. Only downside is bathrooms are on the 1st floor and the space was on the 10th I believe. But all in all we enjoyed the space and the ambiance.

Pros and Cons of Recording in Los Angeles

When you take into account the city’s thriving live music scene, Los Angeles is one of the best places in the United States to record music. But there are a few disadvantages to renting a studio space in the city.

Advantages

Live music scene
Los Angeles boasts one of the best live music scenes in the United States, with a buzzing energy and a reputation for hosting some of the world’s biggest recording artists.

Diversity of venues

Experienced professionals
With its extensive network of creatives, Los Angeles has an abundance of highly experienced sound engineers and performers who can bring your recording session to life.

Easy international connections
Los Angeles International Airport makes it easy for your sound engineers and performers from other cities to get to and from your recording studio. If they’re coming from out-of-state, they can also take advantage of the train services to Union Station.

Good year-round weather
Los Angeles’ weather makes it the perfect place to host recording sessions throughout the year, whether you’re using studio time indoors or outdoors.

Disadvantages

High costs of living
With its high costs of living, Los Angeles isn’t the most affordable place to host a recording session. Rental rates for recording studios and music studio spaces reflect the city's overall high cost of real estate.
