“Very Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

If you are a Beatles fan or are just interested in the history of 60's music I can not recommend this highly enough!
We were greeted by Roag Best- Pete's brother- and he was a very enthusiastic informative and entertaining guide. We learnt so much about the beginnings of the Beatles, the Best Family, and importantly the part played by Mona Best. We heard some great story's as well as being able to walk through the rooms and on the stage where the Beatles started. The ceilings which were painted by John, George and Paul are a highlight- complete with carvings left by John.
As somebody who has grown up with the Beatles music I have to say it was an experience I will always remember.

“the real place where the beatles played before fame”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

since the cavern u see is not the old cavern but a rebuilt pub you should take a taxi and visit this fantastic place that in fact is Pete Best house, now his brother lives there. you´ll find unforgettable drawings made by john ( with signature still clear ) paul, pete and cynthia. dont leave without buying the picture of the silver beatles with a pete best signature.
youll be greeted by pete best brother and its a quite friendly family
a bit far from city center maybe 20 minutes by cab but really worth

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

If you're a proper Beatles fan then this is for you! Roag Best showed us around the Casbah and he was great. He made us feel very welcome and had some wonderful stories to tell. The part that the Casbah played in Beatle history is sometimes overshadowed by the Cavern days but trust me after visiting, you'll realise how important it was. We'll definitely be coming back! Many thanks to Roag and the Best family for letting us see all these hidden treasures!! P.S thanks for the mug!!

“Must see for all Beatles fans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

It was like stepping into the past. The ceiling alone is worth seeing, but when you realize that your tour guides are the brothers of Pete Best, it makes it extra special. Try to catch Roag if he isn't busy renovating upstairs!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

Don't miss this! See where the Beatles story begins! Roag did an excellent job of sharing inside stories as well as the basic information for how the Casbah Coffee Club was a main location for the Beatles.
