Owner description: Situated in the Cavern Quarter at the heart of the city. Liverpool's most famous street not only houses the Cavern Club but numerous references and connections to the "four lads who shook the world" and Liverpool's long musical heritage. There's shopping, bars and pubs, and come summer weekends the street is packed with partying locals and tourists.

A slice of history . With the cavern club, the grapes pub where the Beatles drank and other pubs too. Visit on Thursday or Friday, avoid on Saturday when it becomes very very loud and crowded

Really nice street. Very funny with all about Beatles. Good pubs and special atmosphere. There you will find Cavern Club and it's original entrance. But this incredible music bar deserves a dedicated evaluation.

If you are out for a night in Liverpool Mathew Street is a must. The Cavern is great for it's history and The Rubber Soul is one big party!

We went there 15 years ago and it was nice and quiet, we went back with the kids and even at 4pm it was full of drunks and it has lost the magic. A retros club right next to the Cavern! It is now very cheep and very sad to see.

Well it is a must for The Beatles fans since that's where the legendary Cavern Club is located. Of course it is quite touristy and everything, but I thought the atmosphere around Mathew Street was pretty nice and fun. Too many promoters harrassing people though.
