On a cold night in February, Studio688 opened its doors for a really big party. After years of dreaming and months of hard work, it was finally time for our Open House.
A steady stream of curious folks came through the doors, eager to explore the new creative co-working space and enjoy the music of top-notch local bands. We invited everyone to walk through the work area where there are four dedicated desks for members. This area maintains its Midtown charm with a non-functioning fireplace and an exposed brick chimney, not to mention the original art and vintage furniture that can be found throughout.
The “small but mighty” Studio688 crew mingled with co-working members and party guests. The photobooth was in full swing throughout the night. Groups of friends rambled over to set down their Wiseacre brew and take a photo or two. Over plates of local fare provided by Simply Delicious and Bedrock Eats, we chatted about the arts scene in Memphis and how we could all work together to promote our community. Ideas were shared and partnerships began to form.
As the music of local bands Idle&Wild and Deering & Down filled the studio, we settled down into the plush vintage couches for an intimate evening among friends.
We hope to bring you more nights like our Open House in the future. Until then, we invite you to have your own creative moments and special events here as part of our community.
