Jacaranda Records: Phase One, New Venue Opening in Liverpool this May!
The approaching bank holiday weekend is set to be an exciting one, on Friday 25th May, the team behind Jacaranda Records are launching a pop up bar at their brand new venue on 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.
You’re probably already familiar with the legendary Jacaranda Club, and of course its unique upstairs Record Store and coffee shop combination, well PHASE ONE is the next stage in the evolution of that. In a disused building at the bottom of Seel Street, the team are planning 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. The initial pop up will help fund this eventuality and will showcase the aesthetic.
So, by spending time in the pop up over the course of the summer, you’re not only guaranteed a unique and exciting experience, but you’ll be making an investment into the future of music in Liverpool.
The grand design is yet to be realised, but with the help of the pop up, it won’t be long before it happens. You’ll be able to see the project evolve! You will see the venue developing week by week, so you know exactly where your money is being spent. You will be investing in the future of music in this city.
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 will get to witness the project’s evolution as they host a plethora of big shows, club nights and events.
The launch weekend has a great line up, with The Soul Rays headlining the Friday, followed by a DJ set from Bear Growls. Saturday will then be headlined by Galactic Funk Militia and DJ Matt Mook Mak; and the Sunday closes with Rory Taylor. There will also be a whole host of other artists including Liz Owen, The Holograms, David Glyn Jones and more. Details can be found on the Facebook event.
If the opening weekend isn’t exciting enough, the thought of a new venue in Liverpool with such a big future ahead of it definitely is. Also, given the minds behind it, this venue is guaranteed to be one which will provide you with plenty of Instagram photo opportunities and an experience worth talking about.
