The Armadillo tea rooms was a café in Liverpool that were a significant part of the early '80s music scene. This was helped by their proximity to Mathew Street and Probe Records.[1][2][3][4]

They were especially noted for the furry seat covers on the toilets.

The building is now occupied by Flanagan's Apple.[5]
