The Vines Hotel
Located at the end of Lime Street in Liverpool, the Vines Hotel is a public house at its most ebullient and Edwardian Baroque at its finest. Designed by Walker Thomas in 1907 it has a splendidly ornate exterior of carved stone, glass and polished brass with a flamboyant tower of quite useless proportions containing only a tall and very thin single room. Mind you I suppose the brewers were happy to pay for such architectural excess, I can not imagine it happening today.
