With artsy Goldsmith's College right on its doorstep, South London pub The New Cross Inn is never short of a crowd. Which is just as well as there's live music six nights a week (Monday is quiz night), including Open Mic Night every Tuesday. Music ranges from emerging artists to bigger names in a wide variety of genres, including ska, rock, punk and folk. Given its student neighbours, the pub caters to smaller budgets, with gig tickets starting at £3 and happy hour from 6-7pm every weekday night. Every August, it also hosts three-day live music festival Cross Fest.

One of New Cross' more prominent venues for seeing live music.
Located bang in the middle of New Cross, the Inn sits in the imposing shadow of neighbouring club The Venue. Luckily the two places are in every other way worlds apart.
The New Cross Inn attracts a young often studenty crowd through it's doors. The music is varied and as with all places sometimes hit or miss but ultimately... more
AWFUL. Really really awful. I'm used to dingy rock venues. I'll even seek out the dingiest rock venues. The sad thing is, if this place was in Camden it'd make a fortune.
It's directly opposite Goldsmiths. But even they weren't drinking in here on a Thursday. I can see why. J Green is right, it's not the Amersham Arms so I imagine everyone was in there.
The area isn't nice, the bar is... more
