Explore your creativity.

From music to drama to dance, The Stage allows you to express your creativity in a safe, open space that embraces individuality. StudioRepublik’s team offers in-depth training and education that will help you elevate your career or hobby to the next level.

There are theatre and dance classes, podcast-recording studios, jamming sessions, music production courses, and more to help you develop your talents and bond with like-minded individuals –⁠ all in a truly state-of-the-art space where no expense has been spared to ensure that each and every room is perfectly designed with its end purpose and user in mind.


Get fitter, faster, and stronger.

At The Arena, group exercise is upgraded with the help of technology, music, and visuals in more than ten dedicated specialized studios. These classes are as much of an experience as they are a killer workout, and they are designed to stimulate your senses and add excitement to every session, helping you stay motivated.

With the largest offering of women-only classes in town, there’s something to suit every fitness level across aerial, cycling, Pilates, yoga, and meditation (to name a few). And, of course, the gym is stocked with some of the best equipment in town.

Nourish your body.

Whether you’ve just finished a workout, wrapped a recording session, or are meeting friends for a bite, ROH offers nourishing options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 

If you’re in a rush, you can grab some of the homemade seasoned nuts to go, but we recommend you stick around to enjoy the live music that’s performed on stage in the middle of the space.
