Early hours

Lovely Earlsfield, located in a quiet corner of Wandsworth, is one of South West London's hidden gems. The perfect place to make some noise.

Running parallel to the River Wandle, Garratt Lane is the heart of Earlsfield. It has all the usual suspects; Tesco, Sainsbury's, indie cafes, cocktail bars and restaurants (Il Girasole and The Thai Grocer are said to rate highly). 

Locally, there are more Victorian pubs than you can shake a drum stick at — try The Jolly Gardeners, on the corner of Lydden Rd, or The Wandle of Earlsfield.

For those seeing a change of scenery, King George's Park and Southfields have wide-open grassy spaces to enjoy, plus there's a skatepark and BMX track.

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.

What's the Earlsfield recording studio all about?

Record your songs in our Earlsfield studio with our in-house engineer/producer Max, a multi-instrumentalist who has played with many bands over the years and recorded and mixed hundreds more. He specialises in working with live bands and knows how to get the best sound out of you and the room.
