Located in the heart of Liverpool - Parr Street; Studio 2 was amongst one of the most famous recording studios in the city. Writhe with musical history and has hosted stars such as: Coldplay, Black Sabbath, Bjork, The Smiths, Take That, Moby, Lightning Seeds, and Snow Patrol, who have all recorded their music here!


Now-a-days; Studio 2 is a bar which hosts live music events, dance performances, functions such as birthday parties and other occasions. It is a showcase for local, national and even international talent.

The venue has incorporated the old with the new – keeping the key elements of the previous recording studio; such as the dividing glass between the main room and the bar area. This pays homage to original control room; along with the ‘ON AIR’ light.
