cocktail bar newcastle



Its array of grand civic buildings and impressive skyline immediately remind you of the immense wealth generated here. Besides the castle and city walls you'll find the prototype for the Sydney Harbour Bridge spanning the Tyne, and further in land (closer to Gateshead) Anthony Gormley's imposing ‘Angel of the North'. Home of the ‘Geordie' - probably the most friendly and witty of Brits, Newcastle seems to be constantly celebrating its famous sons and daughters.

Newcastle nightlife

Newcastle is a city which simply buzzes with excitement. From football to fashion, culture to cuisine, this Northern metropolis is alive with the famous Geordie spirit. No tour of Newcastle is complete without experiencing its legendary nightlife. Come rain or shine, Geordies know how to have a good time and how to truly make this city come alive with music and energy.

So where to start? If you’re on the hunt to spot some celebrities then head to the diamond strip. These luxury bars and clubs attract some of Newcastle’s most famous faces. If you’re more at home with something cheap and cheerful, the legendary Bigg Market has everything you need: cheap drinks, good music and a great atmosphere. Somewhere in between is The Quayside, Osbourne Road, Grey Street, Dean Street… the options here are endless.

For a few meticulously mixed, super chic cocktails, head over to Alvinos. Or try out Billy Bootleggers, a hidden underground dive bar with live music. What could be better than a bottomless prosecco brunch at Bar No. 28? Newcastle is always on the go so it’s time to get into the Geordie vibe.
