Concert Tavern, York Street

Situated on the corner of Milk Street, the Concert Tavern was named after the theatres which stood in this part of town. The original Theatre Royal burnt down in 1789 to be replaced by the New Theatre Royal, later called the New Amphitheatre then the Queen's Theatre, on the corner of York Street and Spring Gardens as shown in this map from The Queen's Theatre was demolished in 1869 to be replaced by a warehouse apparently, followed by Parr's Bank, which now houses the dreadful Athenaeum pub [1]. Not much more is known about the Concert Tavern, but a couple of doors down on the corner of Fountain was the The York pub, on the lower floors of the Oddfellows building.
