Upstairs at the Ritzy


Upstairs at the Ritzy is the lovely bar and exciting venue above the Ritzy Cinema.

We're open 7 nights a week and we pride ourselves on being a well-known & well-loved cultural hub for Brixton. Our stage show-cases a consistently high standard of live music, from Reggae, Afro-beat & vintage-swing, to World-Jazz, Folk, Blues, Balkan & beyond! Plus we bring a monthly comedy feast, open mic, performance, dance workshops (Swing Patrol!), screenings & all sorts of exciting activities. We love it and we think it ís high time we saw you in here. Click the 'Events' tab above for what's coming up.

But... please note that after 5pm, this is strictly an over-18s only venue  (by law).

Your Platform Awaits

If you are a musician or performer and would like to show us what you can do, then please drop us an email with some links for us to listen to and have a look at what you're about. If you want to be kept in the loop of what ís coming up, but don't want to be bombarded with mail, then make sure you sign up to our monthly listings newsletter, Twitter feeds, or Facebook page.

Members gain further benefits at Upstairs at The Ritzy, including reduced price tickets (sometimes free!), discounts on drinks and priority booking for certain events.
