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.

The people and the places ..... full of atmosphere and do visit the... More

Sadly, the Cavern Club, where the Beatles once sang, no longer exists, at least not on its original site. But Mathew Street remains a Mecca for visitors to the city that gave the world pop music and rightly so. There is still much to see and do here, including excellent shopping, bars, restaurants and a commemorative wall to Liverpool's musical... More

Mathew street is totally amazing, it's packed full of character, there is bar after bar and everything from live bands to disco music.. If it's entertainment you want this is the street to be. During the day it's family orientated, at night I wouldn't recommend taking the children. There are locals, stag and hen parties, so many nationalities and all... More

One of the better nights out in Liverpool, plenty of variety in relation to clubs, pubs, music of any taste. Feel very safe in this part of town, professional door staff and a good amount of police officers.

Good little bar street, lively and busy but to be honest it's not what it used to be. Don't get me wrong, I will venture down that way once in a while but for a night out there are much better areas of Liverpool to visit and have a much better night.
