The Stork Hotel was located in the epicenter of Liverpool’s first ‘gay district’ which had established itself around Queen Square by the early 1960s.  Its Aintree Bar was very popular with gay men as well as actors from the Royal Court Theatre, opposite. Redevelopment of the city centre led to the demolition of much of the old ‘gay quarter’ by Queen Square in the 1970s.  By the end of 1976 the Stork Hotel had also been demolished to make way for the St. Johns Shopping Centre and new bus terminus.
