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. We rent our spaces for 4 categories: meetings, productions, events, and showrooms. 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. _ ***************************** FAQ & DISCLAIMERS ****************************** IS THERE A CLEANING FEE? Yes. We always clean the space before and after each booking. For multi-day bookings, we always charge for cleaning services after each check-out. WILL THERE BE AN ON-SITE REP? Yes. Fees are dependent on the number of hours. DO I NEED A CERTIFICATE OF INSURANCE?  COI is mandatory for all companies that book us for productions, offsite meetings, and events. For individuals, we can offer trusted, affordable COI suppliers. DISCLAIMERS Prices shown are our minimum before qualifying your reservation. Additional fees may apply once we have a full understanding of your project such as: total number of attendees, start and end time of your reservation, vehicles involved in your project (production), the amount of EQ to load in and load out, type of activity, etc. Please note: our minimum hours may occasionally differ from Splacer's settings, in which case we will clarify with you as soon as you inquire about the space. **************************** ABOUT THE SPACE ****************************** ABOUT THE SPACE Owned by a visionary Italian-born architect, this location is a colorful cultural artifact from New York’s legendary golden era of creativity.

Street parking available . <1 min. drive to nearest parking garages 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. When you decide to work with us, the first thing we do is assign a dedicated concierge specialized in your booking rental type (events, meetings, productions, and showrooms) who will shoulder all the heavy lifting of translating your vision into reality. You dictate the vision, we bring you all the options and then put plans in place. Our inclusive concierge service will help with all the questions and anything that comes up. PREMIUM EXPERIENCE + NO WORRIES Working with us is easier than dealing with separate space rental companies and planning services. Imagine: instead of calling all over town for spaces, and trying to get a planner to match the space up with the right caterers, florists, and music, all the options are presented to you by us in one centralized planning process. We make your life manageable! ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE Upon arrival, the space will be prepped, spotless, and ready to use. The on-site rep will check you in and assist to load in/out your equipment, set up all the tech you need, and will be available (but out of your way) the entire time in case you need assistance.
