The Casbah Coffee Club was incredible interesting for us Beatlepeople. Stories about the very early years, as the Quarrymen and transforming into the Beatles. Pauls famous rainbowceiling and so much more. Visit if you're interested in the real thing and hands on. This is very pre Fab.

Had a really great tour with Rory Best who was an entertaining guide through the venue where it all started for the Beatles. You can see the original graffiti and even feel the atmosphere in the well preserved basement. The anecdotes from Rory were also very interesting and it was terrific to get the stories from someone who saw it... More

Our guide Jackie Spencer drove us to a leafy suburb of Liverpool to visit a club that the Beatles had frequented in the early days. What a surprise. We were met by the owner, Rory Best and he proceeded to fill us in on the history of the Casbah. The Beatles helped to set it up and under the direction... More

I can't add much more to the previous reviews but totally agree with them all. We did the Casbah tour as part of the Fab Four Taxi Tour and highly recommend it. I rub all my lottery tkts on the pic of Mo's dragon that I took : )

Roag Best was our host. He is Pete bests brother. He was full of energy personable and a real cool guy. It was a trip to see where the Beatles actually played, I wouldn't miss it. Definitely put it on places to see

We saw this as part of our Beatles tour with the Fab Four Taxi Tour. Roag Best is completely entertaining, and the club itself is full of great little secrets and bits of history. Highly recommended!

This is history in our lifetime. Genuine, authentic, original, for any Beatles fan this is a must visit along with John and Paul's houses. Being taken on a personal tour by Roag made it all the more special and he is enthusiastic and made it seem like his first day on the job

We had the best experience at the Casbah Coffee Club. Our guide was engaging and entertaining, the history and stories were fantastic. I felt it was a really special experience going out there. We took a taxi from town and it cost about 10 pounds each way. Well worth it.
