I recorded my audiobook, ManifestHer, here and was really blown away by the level of professionalism and support I received from Joe and the team at Mystery Street. Very professional, very easy to work with, quick to respond and made me feel comfortable and safe while recording a book with some really vulnerable content. I’d highly recommend this team to anyone looking for a great studio partner.

Been going to Mystery Street for about a decade now and love it. Primarily for practice space, but also recording. Great space, great staff. It's clean, organized, they provide good gear to use, staff is professional and helpful. Highly recommend it!

Did a quick voice over recording here. It was easy, low-key and the audio quality was awesome. Great value!

Joe and the rest of the team at Mystery Street provide a wonderful space for independent music in Chicago. Whether you need a fully equipped room to rehearse, demo some songs or work on a full length album, Mystery Street can accommodate! I've been playing music for over half my life and I'd highly recommend Mystery Street whether you are just getting started or you're a full time professional working musician.

"Mystery Street is an incredible place! I practice there with The Polkaholics and we have also recorded two CDs and two 7" records at Mystery Street. All sound GREAT - Joe and his staff always went out of their way to make sure we got the sound that we wanted. Plus, they work quickly, so it's all done at a reasonable price. They are incredibly efficient. We LOVE Mystery Street!"
