    Default O`Connors

    Anyone used to go there? I practically was there every weekend when I was about 16/17. Although it was a bit rough around the edges I loved it. I remember watching some great bands in the room upstairs. And the jukebox would be playing White Room, by Cream, or Led Zepperlin , Free ,Deep Purple or Black Sabbath.

    That was my favourite haunt when I was 17 in '68. I liked Double Diamond then, don't drink now.
    I used to like watchig the Liverpool Scene on there.
    I remember the poetry readings, one regular reader, Sid Hoddes,(sp), was my doctor some years later when I lived in Seaforth.

    Hi Stanier,
    We're the same age and I used to go in there about the same time - a few pints in Ye Cracke first.
    Never liked DD but O'Connors was one of the few places you could get Newcastle Brown in Liverpool. Tried a bottle recently and can't believe I used to drink such sweet stuff!

    I remember the manager at the time, a chap named Jimmy Moore, he collected Embassy coupons. I used to look through empty fag packets for the coupons for him and got the odd free pint.
