OUR RECORDING STUDIO
Prohibition Recording Studios is Liverpool’s premium recording studio and live event space.
We offer music production services including, Tracking, Editing, Re-amping, Vocal Pitch Correction, Mixing and Mastering.
Our beautifully decorated recording studio is set back in the time of the 1920s and is themed around the speakeasy era with a classic New Orleans touch. With our refurbished piano, dimmed lights, wooden walls, handmade wooden benches and secretive nature, Prohibition Recording Studios provides a truly original and old-school vibe unique to Liverpool.
Our studio lends itself to live events and gigs. We hold private gigs as well as our monthly signature ‘Prohibition Sessions’ which provide an intimate and unique way to watch artists within our cosy, speakeasy studio setting. We have worked with a great repertoire of artists such as Robert Vincent, Ian Prowse, Jj Gilmour (The Silencers), The Mono Lp’s, Crowded Scouse, Jay Davies (The Hummingbirds), Charlie Reader and many more.
We are located in Liverpool’s cultural Georgian Quarter, just off the prestigious Hope Street and short walk from landmarks such as the Metropolitan and Anglican Cathedrals, Philharmonic Hall and Everyman Theatre.
