    Was Tiffany's actually in India buildings and you used the lightwell staircase at the side (Brunswick St?) to get in?

    When Livo's (Livingstones, Stanley Street) closed down, we all migrated to The Maderin in Victoria Street. Also I used to like the Gingerbread in Stanley Street, again the days before a late licence.

    Phil Jones is still going strong. Went to see the duo as 'Afraid of Mice' on the Star & Garter that was built into St. Johns precinct in 81, they later became two's a crowd. He's on the old Pen & Wig every sat now, sometimes on the First National too. Another place I used to go was the Mayflower in Fazakerly st, a local of mine with living off Dale st but marred sometimes by the fights between the vauxhall lads and the 'kirkby's'.

    This is a boss thread.
    Tiffany's - my dad worked on the door there when I was a kid and I remember going there loads of times in the day as well as to parties.

    I drank in the Wilsons which had the best jukebox anywhere at the time but I was late 87 onwards. Some great bands in there - Engine, Roadhouse etc
    The Goth Barmaid was Kerry - she was seeing my mate at the time

    Shankly's, Bunters, Earl St Johns/Rockfords and Gatsby's where all owned by the same people (also had the Coconut grove and Alinsons in Bootle

    What was the pub called in the precinct with the pickwickian type windows and rough brick frontage?

    I used to go to Reeces Saw Edwin Starr live there.

    The Hotsy Totsy .. think I may have gone there once - was it a small place with a dancefloor the size of a postage stamp?

    Anyone remember 'The All Fours' Eberle st ?

    The Vic (Victoriana) was my favourite.

    PPS Gerard. I think I may have a question for you regarding the exact location of Reece's in 1962 because I think one Beatles Liverpool tour book has them having the reception at a Reeces above a shop on the corner of Church st and Hannover st?

    The Reeces you show was a cafe when me and some of the lads used to pop in there on a saturday afternoon circa 1979. Piped music, even in the bogs.
