Liverpool's legendary Cavern Club started as a jazz venue in 1957. It eventually accepted 'pop' music, becoming a premier venue for Liverpool's talent, and the Beatles played there on about 300 occasions in the early 1960s, often at lunchtimes. The Cavern was demolished and buried in 1973, but a 'new' Cavern, much modelled on the original, emerged in its place. It hosts international stars, tribute acts and original performers - and is very much a part of the lively Mathew Street scene, as well as being a 'must-see' for any Beatles pilgrim.
