Newcastle is renowned for its nightlife, and people from miles around come to enjoy its many attractions. Booking one of our best nightlife hotels in Newcastle us ensures that you're in the heart of the action.
Newcastle has some of the best nightclubs anywhere in the country. The Diamond Strip consists of the Collingwood Street and Central Station area where many of Newcastle's trendy bars and pubs are. This is the place to sip tall drinks and dance the night away. House of Smith, Florita's and Madame Koo all sit side by side on Collingwood Street and are all worth visiting in their own right. Sometimes they combine to create a smorgasbord of sounds from pumping house to the chilled tones of downtempo.
For everything in one place and under one roof, The Gate is a good bet. Very popular with Newcastle's young crowd, The Gate has restaurants, cafés, bars, pubs and clubs and even a casino.
For a relaxing evening with fantastic views across the River Tyne and the striking Gateshead Millennium bridge, head to the Quayside.
For classic Geordie hospitality and the chance to enjoy a cosy chat with friends or family while supping on a Newcastle Brown Ale, try a proper Toon pub. The Free Trade Inn, overlooking the Quay, and Crown Posada, one of Newcastle's oldest pubs, are just two worth investigating.
Maybe you'd like to treat yourself to some new clothes before hitting the pubs and clubs. If so, you're in luck when it comes to choice. Northumberland Street is Newcastle's main shopping street and there are shopping centres at Eldon Square, Metrocentre – the biggest shopping mall in the UK – and Royal Quays. Eldon Garden Shopping Centre has an appealing blend of speciality retailers and independently-owned boutiques. And Old George Yard is a great place to shop for designer clothes and vintage threads.
Deli Espresso is a great way to start your evening, with a delicious coffee and a bite to eat. It's also the ideal destination for the morning after the night before – to enjoy a hangover-appeasing full English breakfast.
Sometimes there's nothing better than a kebab, and Moulin Rouge probably provide the best in Newcastle. The staff are friendly and the kebabs are full of flavour.
Serving traditional home-cooked Italian food such as delicious pizza and gamberetti pasta, Sapori Café will extend you a warm welcome.
It's not all about drinking and dancing, of course. Newcastle has a great selection of theatres, cinemas and other attractions. The Boulevard offers song, music, dance and sequins for fans of top cabaret. The Theatre Royal is perfect for seeing a great play, show or musical. Nothing beats a good laugh, and Stand Comedy Club is sure to tickle your funny bone. And Spot White is the place where you can play several games of snooker and pool into the wee small hours of the morning.
