    Default Lark Lane Are there too many bars?

    Are there too many bars on Lark Lane?

    Residents of a popular suburb of Liverpool are urging the city council to call time on the number of new bars being allowed to open in the area.

    Yes is the answer. The whole balance of Lark Lane has changed too much in favour of boozing. Come to think of it though, that's why the old police station was moved there from Aigburth Vale in the late 19th C. They were a boozy rough lot living then in Lark Lane. No doubt the class of clientele in the street has improved these days but I have to say, it's the only Liverpool street where I've felt the locals might part me from my camera.

    Default LARK LANE

    I recall lark lane in the sixties and it was such a nice quiet little place. You could directly access it from Aigburth road. The Masonic pub was always quite busy on a Sunday with park strollers popping in for a pint. Joes Caf? was my favorite haunt and you could get a big mug of tea for sixpence. They had a pinball machine I had mastered and the sounds of the sixties were always playing when we were in there. The Police station was going then but it was never busy. There was a little shop in the middle of the lane that sold old coins and war medals. I always looked in the window to see what he had as I liked coin collecting, he also did stamp collecting, it was very old world. Killey?s was the last shop before the Park I was his paper boy for a while. He sold little bottles of cider that were not alcoholic and they tasted fantastic. Lark Lane then was a small community and people knew each other; it was not as trendy as it is supposed to be now. I am glad that it is still functioning in someway as it has always been an alternative culture even when the old lane community was about. The students and the laners lived side by side as bed sit land was all around Parkfield road and Linnet Lane.I had a few flats in the area myself. The access to the Park was the best thing about the place and we played a lot of football there. I have been down once or twice but not in a decade so I cannot really comment on the new bars. I think if the bars are trouble free then it should be okay if you?re going to have that kind of culture I think the lane is the right place as it is secluded.

    The more bars the merrier. The higher the quality the merrier.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no

    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    I don't live there, so i can't really say what it's like to live with all the bars and restaurants, but I really love Lark Lane. It's definitely one of my favourite parts of Liverpool.
    Especially some of the restaurants - really nice place to eat on a winter's night.

    Exactly. It is a nice place. And those who don't like it, stay away or move away.
