 Lime Street, Liverpool

First opened in 1830 on the opposite side of Lime Street. It is now officially McHale's Irish American Bar. There is a miniature Statue Of Liberty, cantilevered out above street level. The bar was already popular with Empire Theatre thespians and American seamen before World War II during which it became host to American service men and the servicing of their recreational needs. The clientele does not normally include teenagers or the young but the pub can now be quite noisy, with karaoke a frequent attraction. It nevertheless attracts many characterful regulars.
