If you want a place where you can spend your nights in pubs that are located close to each other, then you may want to visit Newcastle upon Tyne. Its inviting streets are filled with a crowd on weekend nights. Be reminded that wearing no coat is a sure sign that you party hard. People who go out in Newcastle prefer to wear minimal clothing, so be sure to leave your coat at the hotel if you do not want to stand out from the crowd.
You may start your night in Newcastle by going to Union Rooms located on Neville Street. You will not miss it, because it is a very attractive Victorian building on the street. The Union Room was once a former gentleman’s club, and its architectural design represents the symbol of the local rich businessmen, politicians, and other luminaries in the city.
You will find some portraits that include some of the wealthiest and most powerful luminaries of the city adorning the walls of the building. The huge building consists of a library, a sweeping staircase, and a real flame fire to warm up the special guests.
If you want to taste the best cocktail in town, your next destination should be the North Bar at the Old Ticket Office on Neville Street. You can reach this pub by going southwest from The Union Room. Once you see the pink neon light, you know you have reached the place. People from the town say that this pink neon light is what symbolizes the city’s liberal attitude. At the original ticket counter, you will be surprised to see that it is now being used as a bar. The mirror balls will also take your breath away with its ’70’s porn theme.
Take the next trip to the Head of Stem which is just across the street from the North Bar. This place is more relaxing, with its crowd of bohemians, hippies, artists, and students. You will find this bar relaxing but at the same time fun. You will notice that Head of Steam has no bouncers, because they are the only bar in Newcastle that does not use bouncers.
From the relaxing atmosphere of the Head of Stem, you may want to kick things up a notch by going to The Apartment. It is a fabulous lounge bar and restaurant who wants a luxurious night out. This bar is American-inspired although it was once a Victorian building. Its Manhattan-inspired interior design is very attractive. The cocktail is great, too, and the champagne is one of the world’s best. They also offer delicious food for any guest who would like to taste the modern cuisine of Newcastle.
After having a few drinks at The Apartment, you may try your salsa dancing skills at The Vine Yard located at 1 Grey Street. Its theme is somewhat different from most bars, because they chose Latin American music and design to attract customers.
These are only a few suggestions on how to spend your nights in Newcastle. You will surely find more, and the hospitality will keep you coming back for more.
