Welcome to Royal City Studios!

Royal City Studios was created to provide Guelph musicians and bands with quality music space to rehearse, record, and perform in. We baked in all of the important stuff musicians really want:

  • Great sound in the studios, with proper sound treatment for rehearsal, recording, and performing
  • Isolation from other music studios so that other musicians’ sounds do not interfere with your work, and your sounds can’t be heard by others
  • Solid equipment tuned by a sound expert to help you just arrive, plug in, and rehearse
  • Refreshments to fuel your work
  • Replacement items in case something has been forgotten or broken (sticks, picks, strings, reeds, etc.)
  • A respectful, inclusive, and fully accessible environment
  • With the vast numbers of musicians and groups in Guelph, we also look forward to hearing your ideas and making this facility the best in Canada.

Service was great. Loved the locally brewed Oktoberfest on draft. Best steamed asparagus I've ever had. My NY strip was more medium rare than medium, but didn't feel the need to send it back. Oh, and the mushroom appetizer was outstanding.read more

Royal City Studios is much more than an affordable, fully equipped and fully accessible facility for rehearsal, recording and performance. Royal City Studios is a developing community of artists where musicians of any age and skill level can learn, develop, grow and find unexpected opportunities. I’ve attended several open rock jam nights, and although I hadn’t played in years, the people there were extremely supportive and helped me gain confidence. And through the connections I found there, I had the pleasure of playing a few songs at Royal Distributing’s 2019 Bike Night. I highly recommend visiting Royal City Studios and checking out the facility. As Guelph’s newest facility for rehearsal and recording, Royal City Studios is definitely a place where something new is taking shape.read more

Practiced at Royal City Studios for the first time and was impressed. My bandmates and I rented a rehearsal room that came equipped with a basic (but capable) PA, mixer, higher-end amps (Vox, Fender, etc.) and a brand new drum kit. I simply brought my bass and plugged in, which beat slugging gear! Rental rates are quite reasonable, as we ended up paying about $35 an hour for the largest of about five rehearsal rooms in the building. The other, smaller rooms range in price and start at $5 per person, per hour for the smallest room. There's also a recording studio with control room that can be rented out. My bandmates and I were told you can either hire an engineer through Royal City Studios or bring your own. Seems like it would be a solid spot for laying down some quick tracks or demos. I can't speak too much to the overall soundproofing of the place, as we were the only band in the building. But it would be interesting to see if there's tons of sound bleed from the surrounding rehearsal rooms when other musicians are there. Will definitely be returning and would recommend bands looking for a quick, clean and cheap rehearsal space come check Royal City Studios out.read more

Practiced here with our group and was fantastic. Small room was $25, little tight but we made it work for a 4 piece band.read more

This is an amazing set of practice and recording studios in Guelph. I took a tour of Royal City Studios during their open house April 20th. The Team at Royal City Studios was welcoming and open to show what they have. Each studio is set up and ready for you to plug in and practice or record your next great hit.read more
