The Cavern Club is a popular nightclub that is located in the city of Liverpool on 10 Mathew Street in England. The original club was opened in the year 1957, and it was initially known to be a jazz club. It, later on, became a popular place for rock and roll in the early 1960s.

However, in the year 1973, the original Cavern Club was closed and was filled in during the construction that was taking place on the Merseyrail.

The early history of the Cavern Club
The club was first opened by Alan Sytner who did so after he was inspired by the jazz district which was in Paris. Sytner, later on, went back to Liverpool whereby he tried to look for the right location in which he could be able to open the club. He was, later on, able to find a warehouse whereby the leasing of cellars was taking place. However, before the leasing, the warehouse was been used as a kind of air raid shelter during the World War 2. The first band that was able to perform during the opening of the club was a jazz band known as Merseysippi Jazz. The poster for the opening of the club was made by a local artist known as Tony Booth. Shortly after he made the first poster, he went ahead to become the original poster for all the performances that were taking place in the club.
What started as a simple jazz club eventually grew to become a favorite hangout for the groups known as skiffle. As years went by, the club kept on becoming famous and widely known by the people who were living in Liverpool. Soon after, the Cavern Club become a must place.
