The Crescent Community Venue is a fully licensed bar, concert and events venue.  A former Working Men’s Club, it has a long history of community spirit and musical entertainment spanning over 100 years, and since re-opening has rapidly developed into a key component of York’s music and cultural life.

The venue contains:

Front bar open every day to the public with:
Projector and wall-mounted screen
DJ Booth & 2kW sound system

FREE Games room with free Pool table, dartboard, bar billiards, retro computer games, board games & pinball

250 capacity concert room with:
Large stage
Professional 6kW sound system & lighting
Industry standard live and DJ equipment
Separate bar and toilets
Wooden dancefloor
Standing, seated and cabaret options
Local real ale on cask and in bottles

The Crescent as a working mens club, didn’t let in unaccompanied women until a couple of decades ago. Now run as a community venue, we are trying to show that there is another approach to these spaces!
