The Sweatshop has been a fierce supporter and ally of the New York music scene for almost a decade. Run by musicians for musicians we understand the financial balancing act required to exist in this city so we always maintain the lowest rates possible.


The Sweatshop is Brooklyn's premier spot for rehearsals. Highly competitive rates, knowledgeable staff and a laid back atmosphere. Rooms from $15-$35 per hour. All studios are climate controlled and feature a full backline of quality equipment ready for you to walk in and rock out.

Our commitment is to provide an environment that artists can feel creative and comfortable in, the opposite of the sterile, stifling experience of other studios. We've created a place where you can be uninhibited, inspired and productive.


The Sweatshop features a top of the line recording studio composed of live room, control room, vocal booth and lounge. With over 14 years of professional recording experience our talented and proven engineers will capture any sound you require. With your budget and specific needs in mind, from record to mix to master we will help you create the product that best represents you and your creative vision.

Through our partnership with Swan7 and Grammy nominated engineer and producer Matt Stein we have amplified our recording capabilities exponentially: offering the best of digital, vintage and modern analog equipment, experience and expertise all under one roof.
