Jacaranda Records: PHASE ONE brings an evolutionary concept to Seel Street
Part Record Store, part bar, part live venue and part restaurant, PHASE ONE is a pop up, but it’s one with a future that you can be part of.
Devised by the team behind Jacaranda Records, Phase One is the next stage in the evolution of the record shop. In a disused building at the bottom of Seel Street, the team have tried to cram in everything you could ever want out of a record store: a huge vinyl range, custom listening booths, food, drink, exclusive live performances and DJ sets as well as an outdoor courtyard and killer cocktail menu; not to mention a recording studio, practice rooms and music tuition rooms.
Make no mistake this is a big and ambitious project and to do it they’re going to need some help. By spending time with at PHASE ONE over the course of this summer, you’ll be making an investment into the future of music in this city; we can do it….but only together.
There’s thousands of vinyl for sale, and true to the original Jacaranda Records concept, there are 4 listening booths built from converted garden sheds to play the vinyl while you eat and drink. You can listen to what you want, when you want.
The basement will house the new purpose built recording studio with an audience viewing area, teaching rooms and glass fronted office spaces for Jacaranda Records Ltd, the record label. PHASE ONE is giving you the opportunity to catch a glimpse of your favourite artist recording new material, or a witness our latest new act being signed.
The grand design is yet to be realised, but with your help, the team can make it happen. The best bit of all of this is that you’ll see the project evolve; you’ll actually see the venue changing and growing week by week, meaning you know exactly where your money is being spent. You are investing in the future of music in this city.
You’re invited to join us for a summer of live music, drinking and delicious food from local restaurants. Kicking off the late May bank holiday weekend at 5pm on Friday 25th May through to Sunday 2am, and open every weekend throughout the summer, you’ll get to witness the project’s evolution as we host a plethora of big shows, club nights and events.
The launch party will take you through the bank holiday weekend with a whole host of live music in the festival style line up, followed by the city’s best club nights including some ticketed events for worldwide acts. Everything you love all in one place.
With indoor and outdoor areas to enjoy, Jacaranda Records: PHASE ONE has an exciting future ahead of it. This hub is intended to provide you with one of the best multi-functional space in Liverpool and to provide The Jacaranda with a means of developing it to be one of the most interesting, unique and progressive projects to have happened in recent years.
By the time Jacaranda Records: PHASE ONE has developed into everything that we want it to be, it will be a fully functional studio, a record shop housing double the vinyl we opened with (10k in total), a bar with an outstanding offering, incredible coffee and exceptional food.
