Red Admiral, Hulme Walk, Hulme. (c) Mick Pye.
The Red Admiral was built at the meeting of Stretford Road and Cavendish Street in 1973  to serve the population of the first regenerated Hulme, and was a typical estate pub with open spaces and just two separate rooms. It was a Robinsons pub serving cask bitter through gas pumps, plus keg Cock Robin and Einhorn lager , pictured by Alan Winfield at Pubs Galore.

During further attempts at regeneration in Hulme following the demolition of many of the infamous flats in the area, the pub was substantially renovated and renamed Arch Bar then Zar Bar, but a gang-related shooting in 2007 led to its closure and eventual demolition in summer 2010.
