Taken by Fab4 taxi trip to casbah as part of Beatles tour. Can't praise both taxi trip and casbah highly enough! Fabulous!! Shown round casbah by Pete Best's brother, Roag, son of Neil Aspinall (the Beatles road manager) and Mona B'est, Pete's mother. Fascinating insight into early Beatles and original setting. A must for all Beatles fans. More should be... More

Casbah Coffee Club is where the Beatles played some of their very first shows. Unlike the Cavern, the club is original and perfectly preserved. Tourguide was Roag Best (half-brother of former Beatle Pete Best) who was an incredible storyteller!! This should be on the list for any fan doing a Beatle tour while in Liverpool.

The Casbah is an absolute gem and it's astonishing that it's not better known.This totally authentic old rock and roll club, home to their first proper drummer Pete Best and family, opened in 1959, and is pretty much unchanged today .It hosted dozens and dozens of Beatle gigs. Fascinating memorabilia , unique atmosphere.Book for a personalised tour with Pete's brother... More

Don't skip this place. Well heading just a bit out of downtown to see an AUTHENTIC piece of Beatles history in the basement of this brick Victorian house opened as a teen hangout by Pete Best's mother in their family home. John, Paul and George even helped paint the decorative Egyptian figures, rainbow ceiling, Cynthia soon to be Lennon painted... More

First do the sponsored tour inside Mendips and the McCartney home. Then the Casbah Coffee Club should be your next stop! Interiors painted by the Paul, John and even John's girlfriend at the time Cynthia. The Internet is full of photos with the spider web room behind the Beatles as they play, look for the photo of John in his... More

Wonderful time being shown around by Pete Best's younger brother, Roag. This isn't a reproduction (Cavern Club) but an untouched original. This is where the Quarrymen/Beatles got their start. Worth the effort to go and take in a visit.
