The Cavern Club Mathew Street, Liverpool City Centre
you probably guessed, yes this is the old home the city's
world famous Beatles (well its as near as your gonna get
to it). A Victorian warehouse (right) that used to stand
in Mathew Street became a jazz club in 1957, but later
started to feature 'beat groups'. The basement of the
building was known as the Cavern Club. The Beatles played
here nearly 300 times between March 1961 and August 1963.
During that time Cilla Black was in charge of the cloakroom.
Many other bands famous for the 'Mersey' sound played
here, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Swinging Blue Jeans, the
Searchers and Billy J. Kramer to name but a few.
The Cavern closed in 1973 and the warehouse was demolished
to enable an underground railway to be constructed.
In 1984 the present building, known as Cavern Walks
was opened on the site. If you're into the Beatles or
not this club is an essential venue for all who like
their music. With live bands, indie nights and student
nights this sweaty club rocks almost every night of
the week. An essential visit!
