Newcastle has seen massive regeneration over recent years within its leisure sector. With the likes of Geordie Shore playing a massive part in its popularity as a party city. Just as the TV show depicts, heels are sky high, hair is mermaid long and coats are definitely left at home! With most of the bars, clubs and pubs being so close together – those sore feet and shivery arms won’t be a problem. But this not all to expect – as let’s face it some would see this as a little turn off! Newcastle graces variety from traditional character pubs, to casual drinking bars, to party-all-night clubs. I review the best nightlife areas to consider for aNewcastle Hen Night so you’re sure to have the best “night on the toon!”
With stunning views of the Millennium Bridge, Quayside is a sight to behold day or night. With its laid back and well known bars such as Pitcher & Piano and The Slug & Lettuce, you’ll never be short of somewhere to enjoy great pub grub or bag yourself the best drinks deals. Sit outside, soak up the sun and enjoy the fantastic views. The Quayside isn’t just exciting in the daytime, the evenings have a real cosmopolitan buzz about them and the area includes one of Newcastle’s most popular clubs – The Riverside. Sitting in one of Quayside’s most iconic buildings and newly refurbished, the club plays host to top touring bands and DJ’s alike.
The younger areas of Newcastle, popular with its students and young professionals alike. With an impression array of trendy bars, restaurants, pubs and clubs. For a great night all under one roof, why not spend the early evening with Lucky Voice – ‘the ultimate Karaoke experience’ before parting the night away with Tiger Tiger and their fantastic Saturday club night. For something a little different Asper’s Casino offers party packages for as little as twenty five pounds.
