Unique event space in Los Angeles
Entrance from 'Paper or Plastik' cafe. Street parking
Mimoda Studio is a multi-purpose dance studio and creative events space in the heart of Los Angeles adjacent to the burgeoning Paper or Plastik Cafe. Designed for adventurous artists, Mimoda Studio is home to original programming unique to LA, including the resident Jazzo Gruppa, a physical theater ensemble founded by owner, Yasha Jacob Michelson. Seamlessly transforming into a stage, a gallery, a gathering point, a photo studio, or a rehearsal space, Mimoda Studio adapts to all needs and works devoted to art. The events calendar at Mimoda includes monthly classical music concerts, weekly dance parties, pop-up performances, and a variety of classes.
Housed in a building that dates back to the 1950s, Mimoda Studio was formerly home to the renowned Dancers Studio, while the street front cafe was home to a printing press. Renovated in recent years to highlight the building's intrinsic character, the space features exposed high-beam wooden ceilings, stunning woodwork, and gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows that are unrivaled in Mid-City.
In addition to our arts programming, Mimoda Studio also lends itself beautifully to film shoots and a variety of events. The building's unique layout provides several possible arrangements for staging events. Mimoda Studio holds up to 100 people for seated performances or standing receptions. With the use of the adjacent Cafe space, the Studio & Cafe together can hold events for up to 150 persons. The street-facing café at the front of the building, with its industrial windows and romantic mezzanine, can serve as a magical reception space on its own or in addition to the studio space.
