One of Liverpool’s most popular Irish pubs is to get its own roof terrace.
Shenanigans on Tithebarn Street has been given the go-ahead for expansion plans which also include an extra bar on the first floor and the introduction of a new food menu.
Gary Forshaw, general manager of the pub, says the extension will “mix the traditional Shenanigans ambience with some modern twists”.
Liverpool City Council’s planning department recently approved the proposals and work is expected to get underway soon.
Gary adds: “The extension will allow us to bring increased quality and choice to our growing customer base.
“We thought that this was the perfect time to do this as Shenanigans celebrates its 20th birthday on 30 April this year.”
It’s hoped the revamp, which will also include new toilets on the ground floor, will attract business events and wedding receptions to the venue.
Although Shenanigans will celebrate its 20th birthday in a few months, a public house has stood on its site since at least 1841.
The earliest recorded name for the pub was ‘The Revolving Lamp’ in 1894. In the same year the pub was bought by Peter Walker and Son – becoming the first of 11 Walker pubs on Tithebarn Street.
