Coming soon, the first 24/7 self-serve studios for musicians, podcasters and dancers in Dallas. Affordable, accessible creative studios in the heart of Texas.
Your space to create
We’re thrilled to be touching down in Texas for the very first time. Your Deep Ellum rehearsal spaces are being prepped for opening, with round-the-clock studios for DJs, producers, bands, solo musicians and dancers.
Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro, our custom-designed Dallas rehearsal spaces will be the perfect place to create, write, produce, practice, mix, and dance with no distractions.
We're planning 33 spaces ready for your next project:
- Hone your mix on club-standard equipment in the DJ studios
- Jam with your band or practice for your next gig in the rehearsal studios
- Produce and capture vocals in the recording studios
- Practice your moves on your own or as a group in the multipurpose dance studios

How do I book a session?
Our live booking calendar shows the latest availability of studios. You can book anywhere from a year in advance right up until a few minutes beforehand. Some studios are popular, so we recommend securing your slot in advance.
TIP: Book enough time to set-up and get comfortable with the gear, and set-up/pack-down anything you’ve brought along.
What is verification and how does it work?
Being verified unlocks extra features at Pirate, like Refer-a-Friend credits. You also need to have your identity verified before you book one of our DJ or recording studios, so it’s a worthwhile investment! Don’t worry, the process only takes two minutes.
TIP: Use your mobile, it's easier to get a clear shot of your face/document.
I have an issue with my certificate code!
What if something breaks or I need a spare?
Spares in every location! We carry lots of spares in our sites, just in case you need any further equipment or something has a fault. You'll also find lots of spare cables and mics in our rehearsal studios if needed.
Something missing from the room or you need an item from the Spares cupboard? Hit us up on Live Chat via the website or on WhatsApp. We will be more than happy to help.
Are food and drinks available at the studios?
A handful of locations do have vending machines but we suggest you bring your own food and drinks with you. Most Pirate sites are near local shops for convenience, and several sites have a kettle and microwave. Check out our support hub or the location page for your Pirate studio for further details.
