Live Music Events Hotspot Bar

South Causey Inn, County Durham

Live music gigs, every week...

If you like great music and even better cocktails, come along to our weekly live music events at the Hotspot Bar! We welcome a brilliant mix of local musicians from all across the North East to our Hotspot Cocktail Bar every Friday.

The Hotspot Fire Engine Bar is an original 1960s Bedford TK Fire Engine that has been converted into a unique, private, state of the art cocktail bar in County Durham. The bar is fitted with an indoor and outdoor heated seating area, along with five private booths with individual heaters - perfect for groups!

Discover our mixologist's selection of cocktails, or indulge in our various gins, beers, and ales. Food will be available to order, which will be served to your table. We welcome you to relax, have fun and sing and dance along to the sounds of our musicians, all with different styles and sounds.
