Sixty five years after opening on Slater Street, Liverpool’s iconic Jacaranda is opening another premises in the Baltic Triangle – Jacaranda Baltic.
The new Jacaranda Baltic site is made up of a record shop and a 400 capacity performance area, located inside Cain’s Brewery.
The record store, the latest iteration of the Jacaranda brand, will stock a curated mix of local and international artists’ new releases, along with all the classic albums you expect to find.
The performance area, Jacaranda’s largest and most ambitious to date, already has a range of huge artists set to play there.
Tom Odell, Dizzee Rascal, Shed Seven, Cast and Red Rum Club are all set to perform live on-stage and launch their new albums from Jacaranda Baltic over the next few months.
The launch of the project in the Baltic Triangle also marks the start of a new era for the original Jacaranda. The first floor of the world famous bar has had a full refurbishment to transform it into the city centre home of the award-winning Jacaranda Records.
The shop at The Jacaranda will be open seven days a week from 10AM until 6PM, while the Baltic shop will be open Thursday to Sunday from 10AM until 6PM, making them the go-to places for vinyl in Liverpool.
The Jacaranda has been a staple in Liverpool’s music scene since the 1950s with many local bands still playing their first gig there. In 1960 John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Stuart Sutcliffe and Pete Best played their first show together at the venue, which was the band’s first under the name The Beatles.
Jacaranda Baltic is the latest addition to the Baltic Triangle’s ever-growing music scene with music venue Content and record shop Matsuri Records both being launched in the past 12 months.
The Jacaranda Baltic record store opened its doors for the first time on Friday 12th January.
The first album launch show is on Tuesday 23rd January, which will be Tom Odell launching his sixth album Black Friday.
Graham Stanley, Managing Director at Jacaranda said:
“The Jacaranda Baltic project is definitely the most ambitious thing we’ve done as a business! We’ve tried to put Jacaranda DNA in every fixture, corner and brick of the new premises.”
Veselin Mihaylov, Head of Bookings at Jacaranda said:
“We’re excited to bring some of the world’s biggest acts to Liverpool and the Baltic Triangle. The performance space and stage has been purpose built with intimate shows from large acts in mind. So watch this space and trust me when I say we have big things to announce very soon.”
