Philharmonic Dining Rooms

Philharmonic Dining Rooms, Hope Street, Liverpool. This public house was built in about 1898–1900 for the brewer Robert Cain. It was designed by Walter W. Thomas (not to be confused with Walter Aubrey Thomas the designer of the Royal Liver Building) and craftsmen from the School of Architecture and Applied Arts at University College (now the University of Liverpool), supervised by G. Hall Neale and Arthur Stratton.

The interior is decorated in musical themes that relate to the nearby Philharmonic hall. These decorations are executed on repoussé copper panels designed by Bare and by Thomas Huson, plasterwork by C. J. Allen. Pollard and Pevsner, in the Buildings of England series, state that it is the most richly decorated of Liverpool's Victorian public houses, and that "it is of exceptional quality in national terms".

Paul McCartney performed at the Philharmonic when he was a young musician, and during an impromptu concert in 2018.
