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.
