    Default New bar in Moorfields

    The old yatesies in Moorfields is being redeveloped into a trendy new bar. Already the new revolving frontage has been put in place.

    I've heard nothing about this being made into a trendy bar but I think it's a great idea if it is.I thought that revolving bit would've looked a bit daft on a derelict building,the last thing you want to do is draw attention to it.

    Remember when St John's Tower revolved? Nah! Didn't think so.

    Jeezus! How I hate all you young Scouse whippersnappers and all that you have to look forward to in Liverpool! You don't deserve it.

    Hey Dave I remember when St John,s revolved. Went there twice for a quiet meal with a friendknow what I mean like? Prices at the time were £14 for us both in the early seventies with the bottle of Blue Nun as well

    I went once when it revolved too, for the novelty then up to the observation deck.

    I also remember the Canny mob's HQ too.

    I went there once as well, I think the prices had come down by the time I went. The one problem was that if you went to the toilet by the time you came back out your table had moved and you did not know wheather to chase it or wait for it to come around again!

    Catching the train at Moorfields yesterday, saw the revolving part of Yates and was quite impressed. Something different anyway. Bet it'll make a few people do a double take and check their glasses!

    I read about this ages ago.
    Isn't it just going to be an art piece on a derelict building before the building gets demolished?
    I don't think I heard of any bar reopening.

    There is no bar there - the building is very definitely derelict.

    Got no pictures of Cannibal Farm Max, but lots of memories mate. Ged, not the Barley Mow...it brings back me phantom eebie jeebies. arms and legs hanging up behind the bar waiting for their occupants to come and claim them.

    I lived there when it was Stockbridge Village too, maybe still is. They put paths in for people to walk on instead of the road.

    one of my fellow workmates from Mill Road Hospital was killed walking in the road there when there was no pathways.

    No, you're too posh Chippie, living in Cheshire - here was your Canny Farm HQ. Quiet and genteel, and a point o' cider for yer.

    I imagined it would be like the tower one, where you could stand with your pint ha ha and one minute you'd be in the pub and the next minute outside. I mean, you'd spill your pint in that thing wouldn't you

    Gerard, ask him to design a revolving one at the pier head and put all these weirdos on it and when it turns to face the Mersey, the floor drops out. Rodders can be on standby to video it too

    Thanks for that Rodders. I quite like it it,s so out of this world. I could see that type in Lime Street somewhere, maybe on the side of St Georges Hotel.

    That,s what I call opening the window

    Seriously though, I take it it's actually funded privately and isn't out of the local taxpayers pocket, if so they'll just persue whatever they'll get planning permission for, I suppose it's a talking point, whether it'll bring in sightseers I don't know, I don't see burger vans and ice cream vans raking it in on Moorfields.
