Empire Rehearsal Studios was founded in 2008 by a musician that was having difficulty finding a convenient and inexpensive location to practice with his band. His building did not allow loud music and he didn’t have enough space to set up his gear. After much research, he could not find a quality space for a reasonable rate in Manhattan, Brooklyn or Queens. That is when Empire Rehearsal Studios began.
In 2008, Empire started with 17 studios in Long Island City. Empire was an instant success. In 2009, we expanded to Downtown Brooklyn. By 2010, there were over 50 studios in Long Island City and over 70 in Downtown Brooklyn. Most recently, the entire 4th floor in Downtown Brooklyn has been cleared out to build 40 high-end extra large studios with a common area lounge and high-end finishes & design.
Located in Long Island City and Brooklyn we are minutes from Manhattan by train, bus or car. We offer high quality studios in well managed buildings at a fraction of the cost charged by competitors in Manhattan.
Please take some time to call, email or just stop by. We would love to show you around and help you find the perfect spot to practice your music.
