For Musicians by Musicians

The company was founded in 1993 by Oliver Doering, a working musician who couldn't find a rehearsal space when he moved back to his home city Cologne (Germany) after his music studies in Holland. Within 25 years, art olive grew into a huge rehearsal center for musicians of all kinds and styles.





Two Hip Warehouse Spaces in Cologne

The "KulturOase" (The Cultural Oasis) is located in the West of Cologne (Ehrenfeld). It offers 100 music rehearsal rooms including music lesson rooms, drummers' cabins and recording studios with many amenities (lounges, rehearsal rooms with daylight, central heating, etc.). Multilayered, sand-filled walls provide excellent sound insulation.





Our New Center in the East of Cologne

The Tonkunsthalle (Sound-Art Hall) is our new space in the East of Cologne (Schanzenviertel in Mülheim). Here, we created another 100 rehearsal rooms, music lesson rooms, drummers' cabins and recording studios.

In all buildings, rooms are available 24-7. Our music practice rooms vary from 12 to 50 m² (110 to 450 square feet) at a price range of 131,00 to 499,00 € per month. We have plenty of parking available. Public transportation is convenient - you can reach our buildings via trains 3 and 4, stops "Leyendeckerstrasse" and "Von-Sparr-Strasse".





Rehearsal Rooms and More

Check out our spacious Tonkunsthalle lounge that still contains the original industrial 20-ton crane - now holding a double bass. Relax on cozy couches and meet interesting new people. Also available are vending machines supplying music accessories, snacks, coffee and beer.

In addition to rehearsal rooms, we offer various types of drummers' cabins:
You can choose between two variations of shared drummer's cabins including a drumset by the hour, or a private room just for yourself.

Orange Sunday Session


Orange Sunday Jazz & Soul Show

Once per month, jazz guitarist and art olive owner Oliver Doering combines a new, high quality session band for the Orange Sunday Show. Join us for some spontaneous musical adventures from Soul to Jazz at our funky little jazz club Klub der Töne with a unique atmosphere.

From the upper level the audience has interesting perspectives on the band. Sit back, get a glass of wine or a pizza and listen to some high quality jazz in the exciting atmosphere of the old industrial building.

An excellent sound system and comfy couches make a night at the club an enjoyable experience. Some times funky, sometimes jazzy - every show is a new adventure...

The show is often booked out. If you still want to participate, send us an email - maybe we can fit you in!
