The Pool Crawl goes on, though only halves at Sanctuary, my lone new Guide pub back at Lime Street.
More great architecture and kebab shops to admire on the way. Look at those skies over the Wigwam.
Paul had already visited the Sanctuary, tucked in opposite the famous Adelphi and this one.
And I was surprised he joined me for another in this self-proclaimed “Dive Bar, Drinking Den, Craft Beer Emporium“.
It had only just opened, so us being the only customers wasn’t entirely unexpected.
The centre of Liverpool has seen an average of 13.8 new bars like this opening every day, selling local microbrew and easing in and out of the Guide just to annoy BRAPA.
Sanctuary had three things going for it, apart from the company of Stafford Mudge;
- A cheery, chatty barman/owner
- “Rhiannon” being played
- My best Plum Porter this year. OK, my only one, but it was NBSS 3.5+.
I was going to tell you the toilet art was classy, but sadly my close-up of the poster with “Fun” on it would get me a permanent WordPress ban, so scrunched up tenners and brown SAEs to the usual address if you want a photo of that one.
Anyway, enough Liverpool fun for now. Either I was wobbling, or my phone was, as I squeezed in a flat white (£1.45 !!!) before hitting the fresh air in the suburbs.
