Closer to Midtown than Brooklyn.

Getting here and being here is all part of the Cobalt experience. During rush hour, our Hoboken soundstage is a quick reverse-commute from the city.

That’s how tabletop works.

We do more, you pay less.

Little things add up: Make the most of your budget at Cobalt.
On a typical “warehouse stage” shoot” you start out with nothing but a big box, then you rent all the items you need for your workspace, down to the last chair.
