MAP Studio Cafe, London


Dear MAP customers,

MAP will be closed for a few days to ensure that the space is as safe and clean as possible. During this time we will be reorganising and planning ourselves, deciding how best to serve our lovely community.

Thank you for all the support so far, especially with the food bank donations. Although plans are not concrete as of yet, we hope that with the right planning and support we can continue the bank once we reopen, and look into other ways we can help.

Thanks again everyone and we hope to see you all soon

Best wishes,

MAP Studio Café team

We also hire out the space for private functions, film locations and corporate events. Clients have included Rihanna, 20/20 Productions, Sky TV and The Green Party.

MAP has a colourful history having started out in the early 1990s as a streetwear clothing brand, recording studio and record label. Over the years we’ve developed into a vibrant community space with a cafe and events space and have played host to artists such as Roots Manuva, Miss Dynamite, Dawn Penn, Omar, Goldie and Junior Delgado.

The recording studio offers a unique creative space with a great selection of vintage and modern equipment. We offer high quality recording, mixing and production services all at reasonable prices. The upstairs venue is wired to the studio giving the option of recording live events, the space also makes an excellent filming location for bands and musicians as well as an auxiliary live room for studio recording.
