Side-by-Side Melrose Studios

  • Loading...

Welcome to our TWO, side by side studios: Lonestar and Vibe. This listing allows you to book TWO studios if you are traveling with a group that would like to be together but still have a bit of your own space. The studios do not connect in any way but are side by side and share a wall.

About Lonestar (1st of 2 studios): The inspiration for our space originates with artwork we found from the estate of a NASA engineer and enthusiast for all things cowboy. Though found locally in Nashville, this art made its way to us all the way from Cape Canaveral, FL (which happens to be the area we’re originally from). Cowboy minimalist decor only seemed fitting as a way to pay homage to our country roots while giving a nod to the fact that there is a greater universe of varying genres and artists in our town. Our studio name, Lonestar reflects what this one piece of art so deeply means to us: that we’re not just country, we’re MUSIC City. 

About Vibe (2nd of 2 studios): Nashville may be known for Country Music but our genres are actually quite varied. One of the best qualities of our city is the coming together of such diversity to create a VIBE that undeniably gives us the name Music City. This space was created with the merging of creative, eclectic décor to reflect the diversity of the city we call home.

Check out the top reasons to love our studios section below.

Cleanliness is and always has been at the top of the  priority list. We are continually updating our standard and policies to align with CDC recommendations.
