There is over 3,000 square feet of space dedicated to creative community-driven programming. There are also five permanent units available for lease to content creators, artists, and creative businesses. The Cheshire continues to advance its mission to be an accessible creative environment with evolving experiential opportunities.
Established in 2018, The Cheshire is a studio space and events venue geared toward supporting DC’s creative community. Our mission is simple: to provide a space for local artists, creators, and residents to learn, convene, & collaborate.
Built in 1906 as a luxury car garage, the space embodies the character, charm, and grit of an older time that inspires artists & performers.
Our event space supports a variety of functions and events, such as art exhibits, on-site filming shoots, pop-up business opportunities, multimedia performances, community activities, virtual (aka socially distanced) streaming services, and more. Contact us if you are interested in using our space.
Currently, The Cheshire is home to local multi-media artists, makers, and production groups, including: Gateway 504, The Overachievers, wxxds.x, and DJ Bo.
Previous artists/tenants include: Roxana Geffen, nôs/nös, Tribute and LookOut Productions.
The Cheshire supports the mission of AdMo Arts, a 501(c)(3) dedicated to promoting the arts in Adams Morgan and supporting independent artists and AdMo's vision to be the go-to DC community for the arts.
