The basement of Jimmy’s Liverpool is now The Cabin, Getintothis’ Lewis Ridley on a name that brings history back to life.
The live music venue in Jimmy’s in Liverpool city centre has been named The Cabin.
The venue opened back in July 2018, but now has a name that reflects the heritage of the Havelock Building on Berry Street, formerly the Cabin Club, which closed in 2015.
Events Director Ben Taylor has said on the naming of the venue: “George Harrison penned his first published Beatles song Don’t Bother Me about times being harassed by paparazzi at the back door of what is now our venue.”
“It was a big deal to us to bring this floor back to life with music again after it’s hiatus over the last decade or so.”
The venue has already seen plenty highlights from it’s first six months, but Ben says that: “the absolute standout shows The Coral, Red Rum Club, The Blinders, Louis Berry, Giant Rooks, The Real People, Déjà Vega, Ten Tonnes, The Mysterines and so much more.”
The original Cabin Club closed in 2015. The site was originally going to be taken over by a restaurant called Electric, and then by noodle chain Bar Soba.
The first band to play in the newly-named Cabin will be Scarlet Rebels tomorrow night (Friday 24 January).
Jimmy’s recently opened their first floor restaraunt, and this month has launched it’s Sunday Mass roast dinner – complete with a piano-playing nun.
