COVID-19 Policy

Due to social distancing measures, please check our STUDIOS & RATES page for max studio occupancy. Bands over occupancy will be turned away with no refunds. No one else will be permitted in the building! For our staff's safety, temporarily we will only do online bookings to help reduce social interaction. Also, to enter the building and in common areas, everyone will be required to wear a mask. Rivington Music will move bands from the upstairs studios to downstairs to an equal or bigger studio to save on heating/ac costs during this slow Covid recovery.

Is there a waiting area?

As anyone in NYC knows, space is at a premium so unfortunately we don’t have a waiting area. We ask that you come no more than 10 minutes before your scheduled time. However, if the train gods smiled on you and you get here early, there are great bars, restaurants and coffee houses close by. Try, Parkside Lounge, Pause Cafe or, Donnybrook Pub

Do you have ¼” cables? Drumsticks? Keyboard stands? 

We have additional standard cables available in the office.  

We generally also carry drumsticks, ear plugs, guitar straps,  etc…but for some of these items there may be an additional fee and might not always be available.

What is this 2$ fee?

Rivington Music charges a 2$ service/credit card transaction fee for all online bookings.
