Newcastle

Things we love:

Geordies are damn friendly, you’ll make best mates at the bar no doubt (… and over friendly, you’ll probably take one home).
Newcastle Brown Ale. If there’s ever a time to try a pint of the brown stuff, it’s now!
Cheryl Cole AND Ant and Dec. Nuff said. (Oh and Mr Bean).
The first ever Greggs was in Newcastle! YES steak bake.
Lucozade your hangover cure? Thank Newcastle.
The Angel of the North is mega (a massive 66ft tall).

Things we wish we’d known:

Black cabs in town are at least double the price, book in advance for your journey home if you can.
If the kebab shops are shut don’t sweat, hit the two late night curry houses… Simla (Quayside) and Tandoori Nights (Grey Street).
The Metro is a great way of getting around.
There are a f*ck load of bridges.
Smile and flirt with the touts for free entry to some clubs. It’ll get you everywhere. Standard.

We all know and love BrewDog, and luckily for all those up North, Newcastle’s got one too. What used to be the old Tokyo Joe, has now stepped aside for a whole load of beer and a whole lotta fun. Read More

Centurion
Centurion

Train station bars aren’t generally the height of cool, but we’ll make an exception for the Centurion. Get on your geek chic, grab your train spotting guide and head for the snug in this wicked former 1st class passenger lounge Read More

Jam Jar
Jam Jar

Located on the bustling Osborne Road, Jam Jar is a cool, laid back bar and restaurant serving up banging cocktails in (yes, you guessed it) jam jars and damn-tasty plates of British and American inspired comfort food. The quirky, shabby-chic Read More

Livello
Livello

This place is swanky, Cheryl Cole has been known to throw parties here and well, if it’s good enough for Chezza… you’ll find us at the bar. Located near Newcastle’s infamous Quayside and attached to the Vermont Hotel, old town Read More

Madame Koo
Madame Koo

Madame Koo can be found in a well concealed cave invisible from upstairs to the untrained eye. This dark, naughty boudoir exhibits red curtains, exposed brickwork, hidden rooms, plenty of dark corners and of course a banging sound system, canny. This Read More

No.28

This is the kind of establishment only those ‘in the know’ are aware of, and that’s exactly why we like it so much. Although the entrance to No28 is tucked away by the unglamorous Granger Market, at the relatively quieter Read More

Pleased To Meet You
Pleased To Meet You

This is one of the coolest bars in Newcastle, on a little cobbled side street connecting Grey Street (cool) with the Bigg Market (not cool, enter at your own risk), PTMY is as close as you’ll want to get to Read More

The Forth
The Forth

For a start, this place is on Pink Lane – so it’s worth a visit just for that surely? Don’t be disappointed though, the lane doesn’t look exactly like it says on the tin. It’s really close to Central station, so Read More

The Redhouse
The Redhouse

It’s a bit of a work out to get down Dean Street from town, but it’s worth it. The Redhouse is an old crooked Grade II listed building on the Quayside with amazing views of the Tyne. Settle in by Read More

The Vineyard
The Vineyard

What this bar lacks in space it makes up for in Latino spirit. It’s probably one of the smallest bars in Newcastle, but that doesn’t deter people from squeezing on in. The influence is Spanish and the manager Peruvian, and Read More

Tokyo

If you’re looking to avoid the rowdy hen and stag dos or are in search of a rest bite from the weekend footie fans, look no further than Tokyo bar hidden away close to Central Station. Despite being over 10 Read More
