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.

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.

Compared to other cities club life, Matthew street is a show and full and I mean full of promoters in your face promising free drinks and when you get in the club you have to pay for an expensive drink in order to get your free drink. Also feels like a very unsafe place people shouting and smashing glass. Not... More

This is an iconic place to visit!! This street is where the Beatles started out and it centres around that. There is a statue of John Lennon leaning against the wall outside the cavern pub where he spent his time when he was starting out! There are also number ours bricks engraved with famous people's names who have been on... More

Had an amazing night out with friends and family! Some great bars down here, the Cavern pub is great for live music, reminded me of being abroad, with all of the reps, trying to get you into the pubs! Still a great night out!

Went to find the Cavern Club area not knowing anything about its history except The Beatles played there. There's a replica cavern club now. No relation and a cavern pub across the road. No relation either. They're not at the same location as the original but interesting. The cavern CLUB is most like the right atmosphere. But go further down... More
