In 2016 the former tenant left the premises – it had been the local Handyman Supermarket for 49 years. Rather than let it be turned into flats we came up with the idea for a bar, community event space and brewery. As the building has been such a prominant feature of the road for so long, we kept the frontage and the name. Opening in 2017 our day to day trade is in the front, while event space is in the back room. Quickly gained a reputation for hosting gigs by up and coming local musicians and also being one of the main stages for the annual Smithdown Road Festival.
