Blinders Beer Mongers
LORD Street mighty be loosing some
of its businesses, but 1 of the vintage shops that was vacant has a new
occupier. The new business is a new 24 seat venue called Peaky
Blinders. This is Southport's newest venue that will offer a good
range of craft and continental beers. Also the bar will be offering a very
good selection of wines, and for non drinkers tea, coffee. All that and
snacks on top. Inspired by the television drama Peaky Blinders, that has
recently filmed at Meols Hall, in Churchtown, the building offers a relaxing
atmosphere in the daytime. The lighting is fantastic inside, due to
its location and big windows allow daylight to flood in, but at night,
it looks most stunning! The venue is easy to locate, next to the Bold
Hotel on the corner of Lord Street and Seabank Road. Just like the BBC TV
show, this venue is set to be a hit! We will be popping in soon to do
a full review. We ask that our readers also pop in to the venue and
then email your experience to:-

taken at the soft opening night, that was held on a blustery, Wednesday, 18
