Constellations & The Observatory
Breathing life into Liverpool’s renascent Baltic Triangle is a warren of intimate venues, but this one is extremely special, and one with a constantly evolving story. Independently spirited, this space is regenerated and recycled with love and advertised as a place to experience, discover, relax and escape a while under the sun and the stars.
Curated and designed by likeminded people with a passion for the city’s business and music sectors, Constellations prides itself on diversity ranging from late-night parties to modern contemporary music, art exhibitions, conferences and seminars.
Consisting of two unique spaces, the garden and outdoor bar is built upon a disused industrial recycling yard still paying homage to its roots. Proud winner of a national design award for woodwork in 2015, the bar’s handmade oak canopy is an immediate crowd pleaser showcasing its geometric design as a striking backdrop. After being featured in The Times, this has quickly become an iconic urban hotspot in the Baltic Triangle.
From day to night the venue completely changes, the smells of freshly roasted coffee, loose leaf tea collections and a selection of delectable home-baked cakes is replaced with brewed craft beers, winter warmer cocktails and locally sourced spirits, creating a perfect recipe for memorable visits whilst basking in the summer heat or getting snuggly around the winter bonfire.
Constellations is a blank canvas, a chameleon ready to adapt to its surroundings and anything you throw at it. Host to a galaxy of diverse events, from the Liverpool Craft Beer Expo to the Liverpool Disco Festival and absolutely everything in between.
Liverpool Disco Festival
“Liverpool, I guess like most cities has its own biorhythms. Sometimes we’re up, sometimes we’re down. We’re definitely on the upswing now.” – David Lloyd, SevenStreets.
Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle experiences a citywide explosion of riveting music, intriguing art and unforgettable culture and over the last five years has helped to nourish and create a nucleus of innovation, integration and celebration. The Liverpool Disco Festival is a perfect example of this as it effortlessly blends together scouse spirit, determination and a city that isn’t scared to try something a little different.
Liverpool Disco Festival is a multi-venue takeover luring hordes from all over the country with a weekend that propels the Baltic Triangle into complete shutdown as roads become closed from sheer numbers of people. Celebrating the legacy of underground dance music inspired by Chicago and New York City leaves crowds feeling united with the heartbeat of disco rhythms.
