This is a unique gem! The venue is bathed in natural light and aged brick walls. Rental includes round tables chairs, rustic wooden bars, cocktail tables, no time constraints or noise restrictions. Located in the heart of the burgeoning LA River Arts Corridor, LA River Studios is the reimagination of a vintage-era “bow & truss” factory warehouse into stunning creative studios. The expansive 1931 brick building was the original casting and assembly factory for the Smith-Miller Company, a vintage diecast toy truck replica manufacturer throughout the 40s & 50s.

Beginning in the early 50s the owners transitioned their skilled workers and machining equipment to manufacturing high-quality metal pulleys under the trade name Withrow Brothers and continued to do so for some 30 years. The building lay dormant and untouched for three decades until the spring of 2014. VOX Productions was scouring the eastside of LA in search of a permanent home and stumbled upon the dilapidated structure in sore need of repair. VOX saw the building’s potential and rich history and knew the space could be revitalized and its former glory restored.
