Studio 2 at Parr Street, Liverpool
Coldplay, Barry Manilow, Take That, and Diana Ross have all recorded at this studio,which has been deftly converted into a unique late-night lounging spot. Part museum, part gallery, part working studio, this is a must for music fans – especially as it's also a jazz venue.
