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.

Mathew Street is famed for the Beatles of course. We visited this street .Friday 2nd December and found all the Beatles things there , particularly restaurants and buskers, but I got the feeling ye place was a bit down market, ( some homekess there) but there you go. That's only my opinion.

so much variety from all the bars. The legendary Cavern Club and The Grapes a must see, Sgt Peppers bar, fantastic for live bands, Rubber Soul, a great venue for dancing the night away to music from the 70's right through to today. You cant go to Liverpool and not go to the Cavern Quarter

Great restaurants, pubs, and tons of live music. Home to the famous Cavern club, where the Beatles played numerous times. Very lively and fun.

There are some great places on Matthew St especially if your looking for love music .It does get busy on the weekend but generally everyone is out for an enjoyable night. The Carven pub and Cavern club are both brilliant. We've seen several tribute acts in the Cavern club, all have been fantastic

This area is excellent if you are a fan of 60's Liverpooel especially The Beatles. Otherwise aside from Eric's there is little else to recommend this street, cheapish drinks though.

I love this street because of all the pubs offering live performance - and they were all very good! It´s not a place to go and have a discussion since it´s very loud but still very enjoyable!

We walked up Mathew street a few times. Really interesting if you were into The Beatles. Not much going on during the day but at night it is really buzzing. A bit too noisy for me .
