About Studio the Venue

M.M.F. Best Large Venue Winner of 2016!!

For 15 years, Auckland has seen the heart and soul of its live entertainment scene housed in what is an iconic presence on Karangahape Road, Studio the Venue.

Studio the Venue was originally built as early as 1914 and was after that redeveloped and reopened as the Vogue theatre in 1939!
Studio the Venue has been remodeled extensively since, from a showroom, to Para Rubber, Don’t Tell Mama’s, The Staircase, The Case and finally the great Studio we know and love since 2008 till now!!

Having hosted some of New Zealand’s & the world’s biggest stars, Studio has for years been the most distinctive venue for New Zealand artists and performers to connect with the hearts and souls of their fellow Kiwis and friends over the world.

Evolving with the times, management at Studio have undertaken years of in-depth planning and designing, in order to fully refurbish, refit and reinvigorate this landmark of today. By engaging some of the top minds within the entertainment industry to understand their current needs, we have ensured that Studio is prepared to keep its doors open and house the future of New Zealand’s ever growing live entertainment scene and performers. While much has been done to give this iconic venue a place in the future, you can be sure that nothing has been forgotten about the history that has defined the Studio as Auckland’s premier event destination.

Anyone that walks into the venue will be embraced by its nostalgic & iconic environment, while being treated to only the best on offer for any live entertainment venue in existence today. Spearheading the continuous development, management and caretaking of the venue, will be a team of experienced professionals from both the venue management as well as the entertainment industry. It is our utmost priority that both its prospective clients, the performers that it hosts as well as the audience that pay patronage to the venue all have their needs and best interests at the front of mind. Safety is paramount to everyone visiting Studio the Venue.

Testament to the incredible welcome that the Studio’s re-launch has received is the number of exclusive shows that have already booked themselves into the Studio for the rest of the year. Be one of the very first to experience one of the most unique venues in Auckland’s entertainment history, and re-engage yourself with the city’s breath of life.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

340 Karangahape Road, Auckland CBD, Auckland, New Zealand
