Multi-use art, event and retail studio.


We provide a space for DC-based creators, artists, and residents to learn, create, and convene.

With over 3,000 square feet of space dedicated to creative community-driven programming and 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.

Committed to preventing the spread of Covid-19, The Cheshire follows all current locally-mandated guidelines.


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, and collaborate.

Built in 1906, the space embodies the character, charm, and grit of an older time that inspires artists and performers.

Our event space supports a variety of functions, such as exhibits, filming and photo shoots, pop-up business opportunities, multimedia performances, community activities, virtual streaming services, and more. Contact us if you are interested in renting our space.

Currently, The Cheshire is home to local multi-media artists and makers, creative entrepreneurs, and production groups, including: Gateway504 productions, wxxds.x, The Overachievers, and DJ Bo.

Previous residents include Roxana Geffen, nôs/nös, Tribute, and LookOut Productions.

The Cheshire supports the mission of AdMo Arts, a 501(c)(3) dedicated to promoting independent & local artists, bridging communities, and supporting AdMo's vision as the go-to community for the arts in DC.
