Feel the heat, Los Angeles

Sunset Boulevard is known for bringing the party. And is responsible for cultivating some of the most important moments in pop culture and music from the early ’60s to today. We love our sun-drenched neighborhood. 

There's a lot to see and do around here, from the modernist architecture to exploring the lakes:

  • Grab an acai bowl from Juice Crafters or head up Silver Lake Boulevard to LAMILL Coffee for cold brew. If you're a night owl looking for some tunes, head to Los Globos for late-night beats, walking distance from our Sunset location.
  • Need a little headspace? Check out Laurel and Hardy, a pocket-sized patch of grass that's five minutes away from the studio. Echo Park and the reservoirs are only a stone's throw away too.
  • If two-wheels are better than four, the Los Angeles River bicycle path is nearby, with eight glorious miles through the Glendale Narrows to stretch your legs.

From the Community

"Through Pirate I got a chance to practice privately and at my own pace."

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'm having trouble with a code or lock — help?

Slow and gentle!  Our locks can be a little sensitive so put your code in slowly and as detailed on your booking — such as * 1 2 3 4 5 6. Don't forget the star!

You might be sent a four-digit code as a replacement for the booking, such as 1 2 3 4.  As above, press slowly and in this case, with no star, *.

If you're having trouble with the lock or code, please contact us and we'll help get you in as soon as possible.

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. We will be more than happy to help.
