Welcome to The Crescent
The Crescent is York's newest music venue; based in a former Working Men's Club, it has a long history of community spirit and musical entertainment spanning over 100 years. It is now a fully licensed, open access, family run community venue fully equipped for live music and DJs. We have an inclusive policy welcoming all the previous members of the club and opening the doors to the general public to make use of this amazing space.
The main bar complete with many original features plays host to the long-running Darts (Ladies and Mens) and Dominoes teams during the week and the ever popular 'Open Decks' sessions every Wednesday. We have a projector and screen showing sports and films. As well as our latest addition of Bar Billiards, we have a games room with pool table, 3 darts boards and retro gaming TV. We also have table tennis in the function room which is available to play when the room is not in use, all but the pool table is free to play.
The venue has a 250 capacity function room with separate bar and toilets comprising 10kW Turbosound PA, professional mixing console, large stage, green room, wooden dance floor with seating and tables available for 200 people.
