This was included for an extra fee as part of a larger Beatles tour I was doing. I knew the Casbah was a coffee club run by Pete Best's mom where the Beatles had played prior to their Cavern heyday, but had no idea this...More

We visited with a group at the end of September. The tour was facinating and very enjoyable. It gives one insight into the very early Beatles.

If you love the Beatles...you cannot miss going to the Casbah. Just to see the ceilings that the Beatles painted was so amazing for me.

If you are a serious Beatle fan you must include a visit to the Casbah Coffee Club! Here you can actually touch early Beatle history!

Lots of history and information told in a very enthusiastic way by Pete Bests brother. Could have spent much longer there if we hadnt had to drive back down south.

Where else can you be in a place that The Beatles not only performed but decorated? You'll see original art work from John, Paul and Cynthia as well as John Lennon's carved signature on the wall. The place is austere and simple but that's what...More
