Nightlife in Geordieland.
main focus of nightlife in the North-East is of course Newcastle City centre,
however nearly every town in Geordieland has its own brand and excitement for
visitors. In Newcastle the nightlife is unequalled anywhere in Europe and over
recent years has become the envy of the world. It is truly a cosmopolitan and
lavish experience anywhere in the City. There are areas that are most popular
with locals and visitors alike, including, The Haymarket, Bigg Market, Dean
Street and the Quayside of course. Even Jesmond is rapidly becoming the place to
be seen in as yuppies flood the town every weekend.
Newcastle folk work hard and play hard, everyone knows this, and Newcastle is
legendary for its pub, club and theatre scene. Being the birthplace of brown ale
and Britain’s prettiest girls what else would one expect?
There are several distinct territories with regard to the watering holes of
Newcastle though. Bigg Market is the rowdy stomping ground of the Geordie, where
bonny lasses cavort almost naked even in the middle of winter. You just gotta
have a drink or two in the ‘Blackie Boy?to get to grips with the electric
atmosphere around here. The upmarket Quayside with its designer pubs is where
the ‘posers?go, to clubs like the Crown Posada, The Tyne, and the Bridge.
Wander along the quayside to the Millennium Bridge and gawp at the wonder of
technology whilst slaking your thirst ‘al fresco?at the ‘Pitcher and Piano?
The fabulous Tuxedo Royale night-club floating under the Tyne Bridge is an
example of the creativity and innovation of this city, with one of the dance
floors of the huge club rotating as you cavort about, hopefully still in control
of your equilibrium. If you wander across the famous ‘swing?bridge to Tuxedo
you may well pop in to Baja Beach Club and Buffalo Joes too.
For a bit of ‘In between?there is an ideal club on the waters edge. Sea Club
was the venue of Kylie’s private party when she appeared in Newcastle and the
club is well worth a visit. Within yards The Cooperage is a 16th century-style
pub on the Close. With hundreds of pubs to choose from it is difficult to single
out only a few, so we suggest you follow the old axiom “When in Rome…” and do as
the Geordies do?check them all out. The pub where the Gay and Lesbian crowd
meet at The Village is on the corner of Waterloo and Sunderland in the Southwest
part of the city, and their preferred nightclub is The Powerhouse in the same

Fancy a bit of ‘Lap dancing? Then jump a cab for the short trip to F.Y.E.O.
(For Your Eyes Only) Sorry, the Moosus has banned me from doing my ‘research?
here…but I hear it’s good! Over 30 or just feel it?...then get yourself to
Grey’s Club! You’ll be instantly teleported backwards in time a decade or three!
Cheap entry, cheap drinks and the music is brilliant! Where the wrinklies blend
with the young set and a great time is had by all!
