:"For the band, see Starclub."

The Star-Club was a music club in Hamburg, Germany that opened Friday 13 April 1962 (see also: "Friday the 13th") and was initially operated by Manfred Weissleder and Horst Fascher. In the sixties, many of the giants of rock music played at the club. The club closed on December 31, 1969, and the building it occupied was destroyed by a fire in 1987. The address in Hamburg area St. Pauli was: "Große Freiheit 39"; "Große Freiheit" is a side street of the Reeperbahn.

The club achieved worldwide renown through the famous performances of the Beatles who played there April 13, 1962 - May 31, 1962 and started another round of performances November 1, 1962. Their last performance there was December 31, 1962; the show was recorded on a home tape machine, and a remixed version was released in 1977 as "Live! at the Star-Club in Hamburg, Germany; 1962".

The Beatles' first Hamburg Club performance was at the Indra Club (also in Große Freiheit) at 18. August 1960.
