Located in the heart of Cork City, The Crane Lane has established itself as an institution and an exceptionally versatile live music venue. Since opening its doors in the 1920’s, this old Lady has transformed from a gentlemen’s club into a unique three style venue – part country pub, part ballroom and part burlesque cabaret, featuring one of the most favoured beer gardens in Cork City centre.
A stunning example of 1920’s art deco architecture, it was built on the premise that if singer-songwriter Tom Waits was a citizen of Cork and opened a late night bar and music venue, it would look just like The Crane Lane. Filled with charm and elegance, the Crane has established itself as a major cultural venue in Cork City, attracting a multicultural mix of tourists, backpackers and those seeking adventure. The interior consists of traditional materials, classic furniture pieces and quirky touches. Together they subtly showcase the best of Victorian style and make drinking here a true pleasure – a memorable indulgence in true opulence and elegance.
