Owner description: The original Liverpool Philharmonic Hall opened on 27 August 1849, and was an acclaimed and integral part of the cultural life of Liverpool before being dramatically destroyed by fire in 1933.The present day art-deco Philharmonic Hall, designed by architect Herbert Rowse and built on the same site, was officially opened on Monday 19 June 1939. Today it presents on average 250 events each year, of which approximately 70 are concerts by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and sells over 250,000 tickets annually.The venue has an illustrious tradition of bringing the top names from rock, jazz, classical, folk and roots, classical and contemporary music to Liverpool. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Buddy Holly all appeared at the Hall during their careers. The Hall also hosts classic and blockbuster films and premieres, shown on the unique Walturdaw rising cinema screen with Merseyside's only resident theatre organist, Dave Nicholas. Our new space in the building, the delightfully intimate and informal Music Room, has its own entrance on Sugnall Street, and houses jazz, roots, folk and unplugged gigs. Liverpool Philharmonic has been working with schools and the community since the 1940s, and the Learning programme now offers a range of exciting and inspirational opportunities to get involved in live music-making of the highest quality for thousands of people every year in the Hall and throughout the region.

Hall in need of a refurbish which I believe is happening at the moment. I look forward to seeing it again as it was looking a bit tired.

Arrived here by open top bus, stop 9. Lovely old pub, lots of nooks and cranny's. Decided to eat in the dining rooms. Lots of choice of drinks and food. Burgers were very large portions, food was served quickly and was nice and hot. Would recommend both for just drinks or/and food. Definitely worthy of a visit whilst in Liverpool

One if the best acoustic halls anywhere. We used the restaurant, but it was very busy and the staff were unable to cope with amount of customers. Tables were not cleared and food took too long from ordering to delivery at table.
