About – New Cross Inn


The New Cross Inn

We put on live music 7 nights a week. Touring bands, local bands, festivals, party nights and last but not least our popular Tuesday night open mic. We like to mix it up so the only criteria we have when we’re booking is that it sounds fantastic.

If you are interested in playing at the venue or promoting your own night please check out our submission process on the Contact page.

For those who want to know all the stats, please download our venue pack.

The New Cross Inn is not just about gigs, we are open all day every day. Stocks Bar downstairs is open every night from 6pm. We have a pool table in the main bar and we serve a wide range of ales, ciders, wines, cocktails and spirits at a decent price – 20% off during the day. That decent price gets even more decent during our happy hour which is 6pm – 7pm every weekday.

Here at New Cross Inn we are working with the organisation Attitude Is Everything, striving to improve the live music experience for all of our customers, encouraging inclusivity and equality.

If you have any access requirements or questions that are not answered below, please contact us at Info.

  •  Level access from the main entrance to the performance space and bar
