The Cavern Quarter Liverpool

The Cavern Quarter, in the centre of Liverpool, is home to a small but varied selection of designer shops, bars, venues and restaurants. Despite this array of places to visit, the Cavern Quarter is best known as the location of the Cavern Club, where the Beatles played many of their earliest shows, the first being on February 9th, 1961.

The venue was usually packed out for their shows, but this still meant that the Beatles were only playing to around a maximum of 350 people in their early days.

On the 16th of January, 1967, the Cavern Club opened in the cellar of a warehouse at 10 Mathew Street, and remained at this address until 1973, when it closed down and reopened at 7-15 Mathew Street, just across the road. The Cavern eventually ended up back at it's original address of 8-10 Mathew Street, after undergoing of name changes to Revolution and later to Eric's.

In 2014, the new Cavern is still operating as a very active live music venue, opposite to a statue of John Lennon standing outside the original entrance to the club on the other side of the road.
