There is a building at 61 Lord Street with Talk Talk on the ground floor and Rococo Coffee shop on the first. I was wondering if you might know anything of its history?

It's a lovely building isn't it. It reminds me of something Swiss or Austrian. :)

Hi Arterial, and welcome to Yo!
61 [Venice Chambers] Lord Street on the corner with Doran's Lane.
Described as a "gothic parapet and yellow and white glazed brickwork in lozenge patterns a la Doge's Palace, 1882 by [architect] Edmund Kirby." From Liverpool, Joseph Sharples.
In 1911 it was a collection of different offices under one roof including: solicitors, printers, accountants, professor of French, architect, watchmaker, estate agents, tailors, refreshment caterers, shirt & collar depot hosiers [but no candle-stick maker] dissappointed. :(
1911 [Gore's] Lord Street - full page and enlarged extract.

I'm sure there is a story,of some kind of "hellfire" club,that was based somewhere, in that building!?

Ha, you could be right there Steve, lol. :) Office chambers similar to this were popular all over the city.
I've just realised Rococo - the cafe. Last time I was there they had other businesses on the upper floor and were still advertising for rental space there. So the building's use hasn't changed much in 99 years [1911 Kelly's].
