Straight but gay friendly, Commercial Tavern is perhaps a little outlandish in flair for some tastes, with masses of dangling out-of-context objects hanging from a variety of funky and skirting-on-being-garish surfaces.
Fortunately, the decor somehow all works, and creates an atmosphere that’s not quite camp and certainly not pretentious. Instead, it draws in stylish drinkers who just want to relax, perhaps after a long day at the office, or for a casual meetup with friends.
It’s closest to LiverPool street tation, and if you fancy a little taste of the fabulous, or gentrified then this is the perfect place to do so.
