The Cavern Club

The Cavern Club is a nightclub in Mathew Street made famous by being a regular venue for The Beatles when they set out as a band.

The Cavern opened in January 1957 but the original club closed in March 1973 as a result of the Merseyrail extension works. The last band to play there was Focus.

In April 1984 a rebuilt club using many of the original materials re-opened.
