Tom Hall's Tavern has reopened its doors to the public after more than 20 years of inactivity. The iconic sports venue – named after a much-loved Liverpudlian boxer from the 1920s – was shut down in the 80s. But, 20 years later and £400,00 later, the place has been fully restored and is back better than ever before.
Barely recognisable from its former glory, the new-and-improved tavern has mixed together old and new; there's a new 30-ft copper bar and suspended ceiling lighting, which complement the original and restored Maple-sprung dancefloor and staircases. There's also a top-of-the-range sound system, which allows local musicians to 'plug in and play' in the brand new performance area. Head down every Friday and Satruday from 7pm-11pm or Sundays from 4pm for back-to-back live music from the city's talented musicians – keep an eye on the Facebook page for upcoming listings, events and open-mic nights.
There's a large selection of draught and bottled beers on offer, plus a good selection of real ales, spirits and wines. There's also an all-day menu on offer, with pub favourites such as fish and chips, chicken tikka and juicy steaks and other favourites like nachos, salads burgers and butties.
As well as live music and good grub, the tavern will show all major sporting events – including football, boxing, horse racing and cricket – on 10 50-inch LED TV screens dotted around the place. There's also a couple of pool tables and dart boards if you fancy a quick game.
Situated inside the Bentley Building on the corner of Brunswick Street and The Strand, just over the road from the famous Albert Dock, the location boats some of the best panoramic views of the iconic Liverpool Waterfront and promises to return to its former glory days.
