At one time or another, we’ve all wanted to have a studio space to call our own. Maybe not all of us, but we at least know someone who won’t shut up about how much they need a nice big studio so they can finally finish all their screen prints, or how it is essential to build a dark room in their one-bedroom apartment. Well, all you artistically-inclined folk, look no further because the people that brought MyHouse have purchased some new real estate and opened up a studio... MyStudio, in fact.
This hip, trendy bar on 6623 Hollywood Boulevard emits an intellectual, collegiate vibe with the bright lights and flash that this town is known for. MyStudio boasts an impressive array of aged alcohols and, of course, lots and lots of books. Who doesn’t enjoy a stiff drink, a good read, and the inevitable next morning re-read?
We have a feeling, though, that the books at MyStudio are more for show than for practical use. Between the tall beauties escorting you to your seat solely in silk robes, and the light fixture above the lounge area that doesn’t illuminate your beer label (let alone a book), MyStudio isn’t exactly a space conducive to learning. (The light piece is rather attractive though, as it expands above you like a cartoon bubble bath). No one goes to a club to read anyways, and if the art books are a little kitschy, then the beauty of MyStudio’s aesthetic alone makes it worth the trip.
The seamless combination of an industrial-style dance floor with a baby-grand-piano lounge area attests to the perfection of MyStudio’s total décor. MyStudio is the kind of place where you should throw on that old jacket with the leather elbow pads, fix your cabby cap just right, twirl your mustache like a pirate and fill your pipe to the brim—but no smoking inside, that’s for the back-area patio.
