A FORMER nightspot where the Beatles famously once played could be resurrected as a new cafe bar.
The Oxford Building on Duke Street underwent a major overhaul in its centenary year and has been divided to house the Larkin’s restaurant and other small businesses.
Part of the ground floor of the landmark building – which includes the spot where some of The Beatles’ first gigs drew legions of fans – has remained unoccupied.
Now the Star has learned that the section of the venue, which opened as a cinema in 1912 and has had numerous guises – including a ballroom, nightclub and pub – is in line from development by local entrepreneurs.
