Iconic city centre pub The Jacaranda reveals new look in video and pictures, ahead of 2014 reopening. The Jacaranda, the iconic Liverpool bar, best known for being the first venue to host The Beatles, is to reopen this year.

The Jacaranda closed down in mysterious surroundings on 31 October 2011, however, it has been revealed through the pub's  official Facebook page  the popular Slater Street venue is to return in spring/summer 2014. Rumours concerning its reopening first started circulating in December, before Liverpool city bar Heebie Jeebies, run by Graham Clarke, who also owns the Jacaranda, leaked the news via its social media accounts. The Jacaranda, or the Jac as it is popularly known, has a rich history linked with The Beatles. It was founded in 1957 by Allan Williams, the Fab Four's first manager and "the man who gave them away". Williams leased an old watch repair shop which he converted into a coffee bar. He named the venue the Jacaranda after an exotic species of ornamental flowering tree.
