About Music Garage

Conveniently located just five minutes from downtown Chicago, the Music Garage has been host to Chicago’s best rehearsals since its opening in 2005. Beginning as a dedicated monthly space, the Music Garage has expanded its services to include hourly rooms with full back-lines, professional suites that host world class production services, and serves as home to Vic's Drum Shop, Chicago’s only dedicated drum and percussion shop featuring acoustically treated showrooms, comprehensive selection, and on-site drum repair.

Music Garage has a ton of artists walking through our doors to use our rehearsal spaces and contacting us on a regular basis about the services we provide. Over the years we have received a lot of questions about booking recording sessions or studio time. Since we have so many talented tenants in our building who do provide these services through our monthly space rentals, Music Garage does not provide recording services since we do not want to compete with our tenants. Music Garage does not facilitate studio time with any of our tenants nor do we give out tenant information without their permission.

With that being said, we have put together a directory of our tenants who provide professional services through their Music Garage residency who have expressed to us that they are open to taking on new clients. You may reach out through the contact information provided on our "Recording & Other Tenant Services" page to acquire more information about their services.
