Easily observed from the street, the studio has hosted prominent voices such as Jesse Hughes of the Eagles of Death Metal and Hillary Sawchuk, host of A Drink With. Whether it’s hosting a local, a hotel guest that’s renting out the room or a celebrity that’s just dropping by, the studio is a place where culture and conversation can flourish.
