A Dream to Work With
Sound River Studios was communicative, easy to reach and incredibly helpful. Nothing was too much for them to organize and they were really flexible around how schedules. It felt like they were an extended part of team and were in this together with us, to make this event the best it could be. The location itself is stunning, with the large doors opening out onto the dock and the view of Manhattan certainly gave an added flash of theatre to the whole proceedings. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for something a bit different.

Stunning Venue for an Anniversary Party
The venue is absolutely beautiful. Our guests at our anniversary party were dazzled by the amazingly high ceilings and the incredible views of New York City. We were able to work with all of our favorite vendors which made for an incredible party!

great event space!
Booked this venue for a corporate training event and was amazed by the flexibility and responsiveness of the staff here--we had a lot of last minute requests/questions and everyone was always eager to help. Steve recommended great and affordable vendors who made the day possible. The venue itself is great, so much light and the access to the outdoors was perfect for our group. The bar next door was the perfect "after party" space. One con would be the sound, the space is large and doesn't have sound absorption so it can be a bit echo-y. Lack of signage out front also makes it difficult to find but just plan ahead and make/bring your own! Overall a great experience, would definitely book again.

Phenomenal Reception
Sound River Studio is a hidden gem and I recommend it wholeheartedly. Everything about this space is special. It is an elegant and airy warehouse/gallery-style space with the super high ceilings and tons of natural light. The space is simply gorgeous and it is well suited for a variety of day and evening events. The bonus of the space is a fantastic view of Midtown Manhattan and East River. I recently organized a reception here for about 75 people and our guests were simply stunned by the space as well as the views. I'm especially grateful to the owners and management, who helped us tremendously to make our event a success. They were simply superb: they are accommodating, attentive, endlessly patient, supportive, professional and friendly. I'm looking forward to working with them again on our next event. I'm simply in love with this space.

Customer Exhibit
My company managed an event that needed an unique space that would fit our customer's product right after New Year's. Checked a few spots in the City and when we checked SRS, it became an obvious choice. The location, the set up, being a "white canvas" to highlight what we were promoting. We had very peculiar logistics needs with what we were promotion and it all went amazingly well. All of this during the coldest arctic outbreak on record for January. We believe that we had such a successful event due to the continuous advise from the SRS team. From the owner to the events team, they were always extremely helpful, flexible, going above and beyond their job scope.

Exceptional experience
My company rented this place for production of feature film. Owner and management where so supportive and professional during 4 day/night process. On the other hand my other company Actu Production, produced for them videos and photography for one of their events and I was thrilled to see how professional they where with other clients besides me. Highly recommending.

SculptureCenter Gala
Sound River Studios was a perfect venue for our annual benefit gala. Steve and Una were incredibly accommodating and willing to work with our schedule and budget. SRS's white warehouse features make it the dream space for an exciting and inventive event, and the views of the Manhattan skyline are incredible and add to the unique experience for guests. We started the night with the Great Scott yacht service from Manhattan, which ended up being one of the favorite aspects of the evening. We had a cocktail hour on the dockside terrace followed by a sit-down dinner for almost 300 guests. The space was perfect for our number and the room felt intimate and never overly crowded. It was a really beautiful and fitting venue for us and our crowd. Would highly recommend!

Unforgettable wedding
We were so lucky to have our wedding celebration at this gorgeous, unique space. Two weeks later we are still hearing from our guests that the beauty of the huge, open loft and the majesty of the sunset over the Manhattan skyline made the event unforgettable. The soaring ceilings and light-filled, industrial white warehouse space steal the show, so we were able to keep our decorations elegant, minimal and inexpensive. Una, the space's incredible event planner, suggested one long table down the middle of the space for our 75 or so guests. The simplicity of the table and elegant centerpieces that Una sourced designed made a huge visual statement. I can't say enough about how helpful Una was. We planned our event on very short noticed and she was completely unfazed, able to design and coordinate all of the party essentials within a couple of weeks. She kept the event on track, setting up the tables and place settings, and thinking of small things that I never would have but that made the day special, like preparing for the champagne toast and reminding me to tell guests to take home the beautiful centerpieces. In the days leading up to the celebration she accommodated last-minute changes to the chair and table rental order when our guest number changed, Through it all she never seemed hurried or frazzled. Una is someone you want helping you plan your event!
