Parr Street Studios


25 Years old in 2017, Parr Street has seen many major artists through its studio doors so Russell Cottier visited with a video crew following behind to find out a little about the studios success and history.


Grammy-award winning Liverpool City Centre based Parr Street is the UK’s biggest recording studios outside of London. Previously owned by Genesis it was saved from demolition in 2006 by Gary Millar, Steve Macfarlane & Thomas Lang. Since buying the complex the three have developed the business, which now houses recording studios, two bars (The Attic (formerly 3345) and STUDIO2), 10 offices, a 12-bedroom hotel and a recently launched hotel mini bedroom concept called PodZzz.


How do you fancy following in the footsteps of some of the biggest names in the music world? Coldplay, Doves, Embrace, Badly Drawn Boy and Sandi Thom have all recorded at the famous Parr Street Recording Studios.


Although Parr Street Studios is still a thriving recording studio it has since expanded to include a boutique 12-bedroom hotel (the bedrooms are large and include twins, doubles and one triple), 5 funky single mini-bedrooms (these are smaller and each is about 3.5 metres square) and 1 double mini-bedroom - called the Love Pod.


Chris Taylor and Rich Turvey are your main contacts.  Give them a call on 0151 707 1050 or visit their website at for further details.
