Where in Lubbock can you drink a great cup of coffee (or a delicious smoothie), look at beautiful art, and record an album? There’s only one answer: Studio 19. This extremely unique shop/studio is located on 19th Street, just west of Lubbock High.
Coffee delivery! Call-ahead orders! Their menu offers up regular coffee, specialty coffee, coffee-free drinks, and even fruit smoothies. Everything is cleverly named after a song or band (remember I said this place is part recording studio? More on that soon…). If you’re in the mood for a quick snack, they do offer various bars, pastries, pies and cookies (new food menu coming soon). The layout of this coffee shop is also unique… there are separate rooms which are perfect for accommodating that Bible study, school group, or a place to dream up big ideas. Plenty of seating! Be sure to grab a loyalty card to earn punches toward a free drink! There also open mic nights and live music.
Visit during the First Friday Art Trail, or go anytime to check out awesome local art. If you take away the comfy couches, chairs, and bistro tables… this is a full-blown art gallery, complete with professional hanging and track lighting. Support local art!
Studio 19 houses a professional, multi-functional recording studio in its lower level. The studio is in operation seven days a week, by appointment only. Feel free to stop by on Thursdays between 1:00 and 3:00pm for a free tour! Unfortunately, the day we were visiting (not a Thursday) there was actually live recording going on so we weren’t able to see the studio. We’ll be back!
The studio boasts state-of-the-art equipment with engineers to help produce your music, and a full service digital audio recording, mixing and mastering studio. If you’re a musician looking for a space, be sure to check out Studio 19’s price list here. Be sure to follow them on Facebook to stay in the loop about recording packages/specials!
