Casbah Coffee Club, Liverpool

4.5
At first glance, Casbah Coffee Club appears to be an ordinary English house. It is, however, nothing of the kind. In fact, this heritage-listed building boasts the honor of being the first venue where the Quarrymen--later the Beatles--played. Tours of the club are often given by Roag (pronounced "Rory") Best, brother to Pete Best, the original drummer (before Ringo Starr joined the group). See Lennon, McCartney, and Harrison's original artwork on the walls and hear personal anecdotes relating to the Fab Four. Due to the small size of the venue, reservations are essential. Combine the visit with "The Beatles Fab Four Taxi Tour" for the complete Beatles experience.

  • Fantastic place, oozing with history & a must visit venue for genuine fans of the fab lads of Liverpool. You can sense the nostalgia as soon as you walk in. Rory & Your team, thank you so much for your tour & wealth of all things Beatles. Ben & Dave (Belfast).
  • I have been there four times and every time it's an amazing experience. We also went to the casbah for the fifty years of the Beatles and to watch Pete Best and his brother on the drums plus every body else that was on stage was an amazing night, even though it snowed really heavy it did not spoil our night. I would like to thank all the pete best family for making every visit a fantastic experience. Thank you again.
