Beatles landmark up for sale at ?800,000
Oct 25 2008 by Staff Reporter, Liverpool Daily Post
A FORMER Liverpool music hall that played host to The Beatles, and has since been transformed into a bar and eaterie, has gone on the market for ?800,000.
Holyoake House, on Smithdown Road, was built between 1913 and 1914 as a co-operative store with a music hall, known as Holyoake Hall, on the floors above.
Designed by architect Evan Roberts, the venue became a popular nightspot with both revellers and performers, including The Beatles, who played there on several occasions during the 1960s.
The building remains a local landmark and, following an extensive restoration programme, has operated downstairs as Mustard Restaurant and Bar, with space for 90 diners, while a number of luxury apartments were developed in the space formally occupied by the music hall.
Christie & Co, the property agents handling the sale, is seeking ?800,000 for a free-of-tie, 999-year lease.
