Founded in 1958, the Magnet holds an illustrious and iconic place in Liverpool’s musical history.
Originally, the street level bar was called the ‘Rumblin’ Tum’ and the basement the ‘Sink Club’. It was one of the city’s first black music venues and entry was by way of a numbered sink plug on a short length of chain which proved membership.
Freddie Mercury first played with Brian May in a band called Ibis at the Sink Club, and there seems to be very few bands and performers that at some point in their careers haven’t graced the dark red stage.
