Our new space features a much larger dance floor (24x32), ceilings up to 26', industrial power, street level access and is ADA accessible.

We especially looking for long-term regular rentals with a 3 mo minimum commitment.

The MilkBar's main studio features a 24' x 32' sprung marley dance floor, with white walls and high sloping ceilings (between 15' to 26'). It's a quiet reflective space in an old industrial gem with views of the Richmond hills.

Adjoining the main space is a 1000 sf space that includes a workshop, storage, bathrooms, kitchenette, and seating / green room area.

We are the home studio for Mary Armentrout Dance Theater, video artist Ian Winters and video production company 37 North, a thriving artists residency program, the MilkBar salon program and a number of other east bay dance and performance groups. See our website at http://www.milkbar.org.

A basic PA system and 8 channel lighting set-up is available for renters with an option to rent the space set-up for video / photo shoots.

Our rental focus is on providing space for rehearsals, film & video shoots and workshops along with our artist residency program.

Our rates are extremely affordable ($20/hr and $17/hr for renters using 10 hours or more a month).

We are located just off of 580 near the Richmond Bridge / Pt Richmond and Bay Trail, and approximately 1 mile from the Richmond BART.

New prospective renters should make an appointment to meet with either Mary or Ian for an orientation to the space.
