Party palace set for a guestfest

Loaded with beds, bathrooms and big kitchens, Dukes Pad is a party palace set for a guestfest. Close to the beating heart of Liverpool, it’s an object lesson in industrial chic, with exposed brick, leather sofas and authentic artefacts. Get out to the lights and sights; stagger back to lived-in luxury.

Revel with a regiment

Primed for a guestfest, Dukes Pad comes loaded with beds, bathrooms and big kitchens. But all coated in a lavish industrial chic that adds a level of grainy, charming authenticity to any hen, stag or reunion get-together. Dukes Pad sits close to the all-night action of downtown Liverpool, so you might never need all the beds.

Dukes Pad is made up of three apartments for up to 26 on the three floors of a Liverpool town house – once an iconic indie venue. If you’re revelling with a whole regiment, you can bolt on The Cabin and accommodate a total of 48. Just metres from retail heaven, club life and the Royal Court Theatre, this converted warehouse will make a convert of you.

An army marches on its stomach and three kitchens should do the job. You’ll gather to eat around big, weather beaten tables to review the day and strategise your nights. Sleep in till late, shop till you drop at Liverpool One, laze and lounge in communal areas on lived-in leather sofas. Catch the match on big TVs.

Dukes Pad is just a wobbly stagger from the lights and sights of Liverpool. Drop your bags, break out the cocktails, potter back from the Tate or the International Slavery Museum. Get together and invade: you might never have another weekend like it.

Living Spaces

You can’t beat the Beat lifestyle, and it’s here in spades, like a campervan on the surfy Cornish coast. Except we’re in Liverpool, the world’s third-most-visitable city (Rough Guide) and this retro chic comes encased in agricultural luxury, with three living areas dressed in exposed brickwork, reclaimed floors and lived-in leather.

Living areas here are built for recovery; sofas are squishy, lights low, TVs big. Gather around the big rustic tables for cards, stories, dinner and drinks. These are the places where the party starts and ends, and the bit in the middle gets exhumed, examined and exaggerated.

Cooking and Dining

Choose from two big, fully-fitted kitchens on the first and second floors and dine in gregarious groups of a dozen or so. Review the day and make battle plans for tonight around the giant tables, seemingly borrowed from Churchill’s Cabinet War Rooms. Kitchens come marinated in urban chic and industrial style, with low beams, Belfast sinks and retro lighting.

If you don’t feel inspired to cook a feast from scratch, our chefs will. Call them up for a special celebration or fully catered break. We’ll even wave our magic wand over the washing-up.

Pop into Sapporo Teppanyaki just along Duke Street for the taste of Tokyo, as chefs juggle eggs, set fire to the hot plate and slice food in midair. Sample Italian elegance at San Carlo, tasty tapas at Neon Jamon and Viva Brazil for the true flavour of Rio, with BBQ meat skewers carved at the table.


Stags, hens or other creatures of the night are rarely overcome by a strange desire to sleep. But if you are, you’ll find a bed just metres from the pulse of the 24/7 city. Wrap yourself in soft cotton and luxuriate in the iconic style of reclaimed wood, exposed brick and artwork from the days of the bonded warehouses.

Partying gets no bigger than this: the three apartments that make up Dukes Pad can accommodate 26. Cross our palms with further silver, throw The Cabin into the mix and you’ll be late to bed with up to 48 of your closest friends.

Salthouse Pad & The Cabin sleep up to 27 across multiple bedrooms and a mezzanine floor, comprising a host of doubles, twins and singles, with two bathrooms. On the first floor, Albert Pad accommodates eight in four bedrooms (three twins and a double). Three bathrooms come in the shape of one family bathroom and two shower rooms.

The Galley on the ground floor sleeps six in three bedrooms, comprising three doubles, plus one shared bathroom. If you’re going large, you can add The Cabin to keep another twelve guests happy in six en-suite bedrooms.

Live it up in Liverpool

Live it up in Liverpool, a city described by Rough Guide as the world’s third-most-visitable. Eat, drink and be merry in a Chinatown that seems half as big as China, back a nag at Aintree, vulture the culture at the galleries and museums, and party, party, party. The lights never go out in Liverpool.
