NEWCASTLE BARS THAT ARE WELL WORTH A LOOK

So many of the big chain & leisure company bars in Newcastle are all the same, that these individual little drinking holes here, are well worthy of your support. If you are a bar & you are on here, it is because we think you are really worth mentioning & add positively to Newcastle…

THE FREE TRADE INN

It’s one of those places that would seem to be crying out to be done up, on the one hand, yet almost magical in its unchanging, dilapidated charm on the other.

BARLOCO

We’ve waited ages for somewhere like this, Barloco is quite literally, like having a little slice of Amsterdam, right here in Newcastle...

Background The Wylam Brewery Palace of Arts

Gorillas, trains, green grass & spanked Jesmond Charlies - All the background to the city's best new bar to open in the last decade...

The Wylam Brewery Palace of Arts

A review of the coolest & newest kid on the block...

ERNEST

It reminds us a lot of Barloco, as it too rocks a laid back Amsterdam style vibe, this time down in the Ouseburn area...

The Tyne Bar

A properly hip & historic gem of a bar, with a fab outdoorsie bit, down near the river...

THE CUMBERLAND ARMS

It's a true parallel reality & without question, one of the finest places to drink in Newcastle.

THE CLUNY

The king of live music venues in the city & a great Bar too...

THE BROAD CHARE

A special place, you’d be insane to miss out on.

THE BRANDLING VILLA

Who would ever have known..? Never was a local so fab, you simply have to give this a big fat woof...

THE FORTH HOTEL

If there can be such a thing, then this is one bar that has always been a true City Centre ‘local’.

THE TOWN WALL

A great & central place that reminds us a lot of Cafe Luxembourg in Amsterdam.

ALVINOS

The pre Club Bar of choice, for many WHQ regulars...

Tyneside Cinema bar café

A real winner, smack in the centre of town, the Tyneside is the best Bar Cafe experience in the city...

Vicolo

Formerly Intermezzo, now redesigned & reborn as Vicolo, now the hippest little joint in the city centre....

The Earl of Pitt Street

A fab new little Bar, on the edge of the city centre, the Earl is the city's small Bar of the moment & best kept secret....
