As a former VIP passenger vessel, owned by The Manchester Ship Canal, The 1903 Daniel Adamson Steamship, affectionately known as The Danny, offers a grand Art Deco interior for events and meetings with the benefit of a large, covered, promenade deck with seating.

In 1936 the ship’s interior was carefully designed as a miniature version of one of the great liners of the day with snug but stylish saloons fitted out with a cocktail bar and wooden panels which were originally intended for one of the famous Oceanic fleet.

Today, The Danny, has been restored and is a unique example of the unapologetically modern Art Deco interior style with clean bold lines, geometric patterns and block colours.

The interior has been carefully restored and the carpets, chairs, fabrics and tables now in the saloons were all handcrafted locally to match the original 1930’s photographs, meaning today time spent in the saloons is exactly as it would have been in the 1930’s – making The Danny a truly unique and romantic venue which echoes a by-gone age of steam and style.

HIRE INFORMATION - A fully licensed bar is available in addition to hot and cold refreshments.


The Danny can accommodate up to 100 guests depending on the type of event you have in mind. We will discuss your ideas with you and offer advice and recommendations to ensure a successful and memorable event.


We can design food and drink packages to suit your event and budget. Examples of what we offer

can be found on the attached pdf.

Our 1903 Steam Ship, berthed at Albert Dock, Liverpool, makes the ideal venue for a unique special occasion or party.
The ship offers Art Deco saloons and two bars as well as a prom deck with fabulous views of Liverpool's iconic waterfront, as well as a unique setting within the docks.
As part of our private hire packages we offer the option to book singing waiters to help entertain and surprise your guests, the waiters set the style and will keep busy serving drinks and canapés until they then reveal to the guests that they are actually singers and entertainers and will lift the atmosphere with their performance.
