Drinking in Newcastle

Newcastle Upon Tyne is the most fun you can have in any English city outside London. It’s utterly modern, yet its distinctive “Geordie” culture of hospitality is steeped in tradition. It is a city that values the arts in all their forms. Any day you might see a poetry reading on Eldon Square, street theatre, public sculptures or an open-air concert. The city also has other treasures in world class galleries and museums.

Newcastle’s quirky mix of different sights and activities is an invitation to understand why the city is called the party capital. While you’re there, you will want a taste of the nightlife! Euro Hostels, which provides the Newcastle hostel, has helped put together a list of places where you can get a drink, a meal and have a damn good time!
