Rent the Space

Recess’s storefront location in SoHo can be rented out for lectures, discussions, book and magazine events, screenings, and more.  Located at 41 Grand Street, the 1,200 square-foot space features high ceilings, a small courtyard, and natural light from the glass storefront and skylight. A bathroom and slop sink area is accessible by our visitors. At least one member of Recess’s staff will be on hand to help you prepare for your event.  A floor plan and photos of our space are visible on our flickr page.

Availability of Recess’s space is at the discretion of staff and current Session artists. Throughout most of the year, Recess’s space is filled by a resident artists’ project and occasionally the space will not be available for outside events.  The cost to rent Recess is $1000 per night.  Nonprofit discounts are available. Use of Recess’ amenities can be discussed on a case by case basis.  On site, we have roughly a dozen chairs (more can be rented if necessary), several tables, two computers, a projector, color printer, wireless internet, a PA system and a landline. Use of these items may incur additional costs.

When contacting Recess about renting the space, please provide a detailed description of your event and some potential dates of rental. We ask that you give us as much advance notice as possible.  For more info or to inquire about renting Recess, write to us at:
