Your Local Area

Industry in More Ways Than One

New York

Gowanus' charm lies in its authentic blend of old-school tradition and new enterprise. Classic rowhouses and converted warehouses provide residency for many of the area's young families, thriving startups, and must-go-to hotspots. Showcasing the inestimable power of a walkable neighborhood, here are our favorite haunts all within a stone's throw of the studios:

  • For lunch, why not pop over to The Sideboard for affordable, carefully assembled sandwiches and an assortment of grab-and-go snacks and beverages. 
  • Your caffeine fix is waiting for you at Four & Twenty Blackbirds which is also known for its decadent pie offerings. Yep. Pie. 
  • Halyards is an unassuming, lovely corner bar with craft beers, cocktails, and small bites.
  • We love our next-door neighbors at The Bell House where you’ll discover weekly live music events, comedy nights, eats, drinks, and a guaranteed good time.
  • Need some creative stimulation? Ortega y Gasset Projects is a wonderfully-curated exhibition space that is sure to inspire before heading back into the 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.

Please use WhatsApp, Live Chat, or email us and our support team will help you out. They're on hand 24/7 and will get it sorted.

WHAT IF SOMETHING BREAKS OR I NEED A SPARE?

Spares in every location! We carry lots of spares on our sites 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.

Is something missing from the room or do you need an item from the Spares cupboard? Hit us up on Live Chat via the website, on WhatsApp or give us a call on +1 844-274-7283. 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.
