PATIO

Kelly Drive
It runs along the Schuylkill River and is one of Philadelphia's most beautiful attractions. Walkers, runners, fishermen and bikeriders all come for their own piece of mind.

Outdoor Seating
The best place to get in the creative mindset is in the sunshine. Lots of seating and privacy

One of the most important elements to recording is getting into the right head space. Our patio opens right up to Kelly Drive - a perfect location for clearing your mind for a session.
