STUDIO B FOR SALE


A) I love that the caption for this photo was "Studio B is the new Twilo," and

B) I hate that Studio B is up for sale. Why just yesterday, I was remarking that in the post-Luxx Brooklyn clubbing era, Studio B filled the void of a sprawling destination dance spot that amazing DJs seemed to flock to. I spent New Years Eve here two years ago listening to DJ Assault do his thing. I also caught Diplo, Orgasmic, Para One and performances by New Young Pony Club, Muscles and Holy Hail here at various times.

Studio B is apparently up for sale for $1 million, with $22K/month in rent. They've been dealing with neighbor complaints and stop work permits all year so maybe they're just over it. Also, Justine D has apparently given up her slot booking acts there so that might just be the nail in the coffin.

that's really unfortunate. i've had dozens of great nights there, including the muscles night and it really was a great place to dance.
