This culinary studio is a wonderful space for classes, social gatherings up to 75 people, all style of dinner parties, business meetings and workshops, pop up stores, food photography and videography, and more. It is a bright 600 square feet, with 14 foot ceilings and a bank of tall windows. The space is well air-conditioned and/or heated. The kitchen is professionally stocked with a commercial Garland 6 burner stove, as well as a 5 burner gas range, two-basin sink, 10-tray speed rack, knives and cutting boards, mixer, food processor, rolling pins, and a full stock of small wares and tabletop items. There are three prep tables for use, two which are on wheels and have extra large, beautifully stained tabletops. Alone, the two moveable tables can seat up to 18 people. But the room can accommodate up to two more such tables, in various configurations, and still have room to spare.
The entrance to the space is itself is 200 square feet, making it a great for information tables, equipment and prop set up, displaying information, setting up a bar, or selling goods. There are two multi-stall public bathrooms in the hallway, just around the corner from the studio.
Neighborhood amenities include several grocery stores as well as great restaurants. The Sunset Park greenway at the waterfront is two blocks away.
The building itself is quiet; home to amazing artists, collectors, and small manufacturers.
