Having a few pints in the Philharmonic Pub, on the corner of Hope Street and Hardman Street, Liverpool is always a great experience. It’s a fascinating pub to wander about and the public toilets are a sight to behold – well the gentlemen’s loo is, I don’t know about the ladies. Check out their two snugs as well, Brahms and Liszt.
The Phil’ was built in the late 1890s by local brewer Robert Cain. Richard Pollard & Nikolaus Pevsner wrote in their architectural guide series Buildings of England that the Philharmonic Pub “is of exceptional quality in national terms.”
The Phil’ became a Grade ll listed building in July 1966. Ref: https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1207638
