About our studio
Come dish out the happiness at our shooting kitchen studio. If you thought you had to leave Manhattan to find an affordable kitchen studio rental for your next production, think again. Our West Stage proudly features an open shooting kitchen with all of the necessities. A moveable, camera facing stove gives you the flexibility to create multiple different sets. West light flows through four large eight foot windows. Alternatively, we also have complete blackout capability. A lighting grid over the kitchen stage makes it even easier to create exactly the look you want. Our professional kitchen also includes double wall ovens, a stainless steel refrigerator, a stainless dishwasher, microwave, deep farm sink, several stainless rolling carts and black granite countertops. We are equipped with all of the basic kitchen essentials and more, including two KitchenAid mixers.For larger kitchen productions that require behind the scenes prep space, our East Studio prep kitchen provides a four burner electric stove with a full oven, additional Bunsen burners, sink, microwave and under the counter fridge space.Basic Studio Info:
