Over the last few years the Liverpool music scene has endured many twists and turns, and the latest chapter in its illustrious history is about to open, Jacaranda Records: Phase One, launching this Friday.
This brand new 400 capacity gig venue, record store, bar, and eatery is brought to you by the guys behind The Jacaranda Club, Jacaranda Records, Heebies Jeebies and EBGBS. Boasting a large courtyard that’s a stones throw from the Kazimier Gardens, Jacaranda Records: Phase One is setting its sights on becoming Liverpool’s newest musical institution and we can’t wait.
As a lot of you may know, ‘The Jac’ on Slater Street has been there for the best part of 60 years and the quirky record store on the top floor has been a real breath of fresh air since it’s opening in 2015. As we’re sure you’ll agree, it’s long overdue for the Jacaranda to expand and their new venue is looking like it’s going to be something that’s truly unique.
Phase One is exactly that – Phase One of the ongoing project that is the new Jac records site. Part record store, part bar, part live venue and part restaurant, Phase One is a pop-up so expect to watch the space evolve and change as they gather more and more support from you, the music lovers of the city. Ultimately, Phase One will eventually have not only Liverpool’s largest selection of vinyl in one place, host some of the cities most exciting events but will have some incredible custom listening booths housed in garden sheds.
Based at 40 Seel Street, the Phase One is looking to put on loads of exciting gigs, in store signings, exhibitions and club nights but it doesn’t stop there. The master plan for Phase One will be to create a musical hub housing a brand-new Liverpool based record label, recording studio, tuition rooms and practice spaces in the basement. Expect to see more details about that as the summer comes to an end but in the meantime, we think you should go down and check out Jacaranda Records: Phase One this bank holiday weekend and see why we think it’s so great.
Opening its doors at 5pm on Friday 25th May, it will be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout the whole of summer so make sure you check it out before it disappears as quickly as it’s arrived!
