"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music." - Aldous Huxley
From the moment you enter The Luncheonette, you quickly realize why this is the recording studio of the moment: its incredible past. A pharmacy in the 1940s, 20 years later the space had fallen into disrepair until one fateful night when Jerry Garcia wandered in and everything changed. The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Neil Young - they all descended onto this place at one point or another in its early days and, after recording incredible tracks and albums, left their indelible mark on it. This sacred ground has been recently restored to make its bottled magic available to a contemporary roster of musicians.
The Luncheonette is state of the art, with equipment for tracking, mixdown, overdub, film/video scoring, voiceover, audio books, editing, stereo and 5.1 mixing and audio layback. Fiber optic and T1 lines run throughout, and there are several lounge areas and a loft for breaks from recording.
