The honeycomb, wooded bow truss ceiling and aged brick walls give the studio a rustic, one-of-a-kind charm. LA River Studio’s flexible floor plan boasts eight distinct spaces, including an outdoor patio, two lofts and a vintage Airstream. With the ability to accommodate over 400 guests, LA River Studios perfect for a variety of customizable events.
