About
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 Heart of The Beat District
Jun 2021
This is where it all began all those years ago when we were younger. Today a saunter down the heart of our city's beat district brings it all back. Some will remember seeing the Beatles ..... for me in the 70s it was The Ramones and the like.
Some great joints in Mathew Street to explore or simply drift through FAB.

Spoilt for choice
May 2021 • Couples
Well in this part of the city you’d be hard pressed not find something to everyone’s taste, from the Cavern Club to The Grapes or Rubber Soul to Flannagans Apple, there’s a wide & varied choice, not all of them have outside areas though do you may struggle if you want to enjoy the mid day sun, we frequented several of them & most were an absolute delight! Be sure to take note of the wall of fame & the John Lennon & Cilla statue along the way.

A must see and plenty of places to have a drink
May 2021
A must see and plenty of places to have a drink - check out the Cavern Cub, or Flanagans apple, or even Flares for a variety of drink-holes.
Can be filled with inebriated people and some rough sleepers of course still worth the visit

Nice dilemma.
Feb 2021 • Friends
Now that Boris has laid down the plans for our exit out of this pandemic streets such as Mathew Street will once again be bouncing with happy socialites looking for a good time ,it will be nice to see the pubs,bars and restaurants along this street full and buzzing, outside service is being allowed from the 12th of April which is perfectly suitable for this pedestrianised street and from the 17th of May inside and outside service will be permitted and from June & July all restrictions lifted and we can get back to normality, its a street I highly look forward to visiting when the lockdown is lifted, I've already put some holidays in from work to get out and socialise again.
Well worth checking out if you're in the area or planning to visit Liverpool.

As a born and bred Scouser I am not that enamoured of Mathew Street, its a bit to touristic for my taste ,it goes against the grain of most Liverpudlians who are against visitors to our magnificent city being exploited, you will find the pubs,bars and restaurants along Mathew Street quite expensive, I can see why,The Beatles connection, the Cavern Quarter which are pure tourist magnets ,its an area I visit not to often , if I do I chose my pubs wisely ,pubs such as The White Star Pub and McCooley's are great pubs and great value for money, that said I do love the hustle and bustle of Mathew Street, lots of tourists hitting the pubs,bars and restaurants, a vibrant atmosphere, while the pandemic has descended upon our country its been a bit quiet but with the great news about the forthcoming vaccines hopefully very soon life will start to get back to normality despite the doomsday scenarioists who seem to revel in misery ,streets like Mathew Street, Church Street, Lord Street, Bold Street will soon emerge stronger and livelier, lets hope so and 2021 is much better than 2020.

Amazing street
Aug 2020 • Couples
We went down here on s recent trip to the cavern pub
No as lively as our last visit but with Covid going on That’s not a bad thing ,
Some bars clearly not following social distancing rules and cramming tables in ,
Sgt peppers for one !! We sat outside which was the safer option
All In all a good vibe again
