Please note the pricing you see on Splacer is not final as it doesn't include our studio manager fee, cleaning fee, Splacer fees, or our tiered pricing (pricing based on headcount).

Each category has different minimum hours, pricing, cleaning fees, etc. We always charge three mandatory standard fees: space rental, cleaning, and studio manager. Splacer then charges around 8-10% in processing fees. Please consult us for a quote specific to your booking needs. **************************** ABOUT THE SPACE ****************************** Blocks from Washington Square Park, this 3300 sqft, ground-floor triplex exudes a blend of historic charm and modern sophistication. Meticulously renovated in 2020, the floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves, remnants of its past life as the home of the iconic Strand bookstore rare books curator, were thoughtfully preserved and harmonized by modern items such as the feature lighting piece by world-wide famous Italian brand Flos. Formerly a bustling manufacturing hub, this unique venue boasts a rich history that resonates with the discovery of newspaper scraps dating back to 1896 during the renovation, now artfully displayed on the kitchen wall, along with an extensive list of curated artwork. Ideal for productions, events, meetings, and showrooms, this space offers a captivating backdrop for a variety of creative endeavors.

Tiers, prices, and minimum hours may be different than shown on Splacer depending on rental category due to their settings. WE HANDLE EVERYTHING  In addition to offering some of NYC’s most coveted spaces for rent, we also offer an end-to-end planning service. We are a one-stop shop for all your needs.

We make your life manageable! ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE Upon arrival, the space will be prepped and ready to use.
