Help!

by coolcesca

Coming to Newcastle for my 21st in September where are the best R&B and funky house clubs?

RE: Help!

by Geordiegirl22

You will have a great birthday celebration in Newcastle. Where are you staying?

There are loads of clubs in Newcastle and I would reccomend for your age group that you visit SEA on the quayside or Blue Bamboo situated at the top of the Bigg Market. The "Bigg Market" is over rated in my opinion and the pubs a bit on the run down side, they tend to be full of stag and hen nights from other parts of the country. Many of the pubs now have late licences and stay open until 1pm or 2pm.

The Quayside will give you loads of choice of pubs and clubs, but beware as they will be very very busy, and sometimes you will need to queue to get in, and then queue for your drink and then queue for the loo.

Have a great time when you visit.

In terms of funky house and R'n'B clubs there are a few options, most of the clubs in Newcastle are 100% hardcore cheesey clubs such as Blu Bambu, Baja's, The boat, etc. Great fun and a guaranteed great night but they won't be playing many of the tunes that compliment your musical pallete.

The best area for pre-club drinking for house music would be around the train station. Loads of new bars have opened up in the last few years here and its the place to be seen. They all play house/funky house music. Revolution is the big one but on that strip there are a few good bars - apartment, bar 55, destination, clear. Canny expensive though and you have to look the part to get into some of them (particularly apartment) and they're full of trendy kids in the usual social uniforms. They're all open until 1am now and should be packed.

Shindig is the main house music night in Newcastle - its at the foundation nightclub in the east of the city centre. It gets some of the top name DJ's from around the world there. Also good now and then is World Headquarters (nightclub) which isnt too far from the fire station. A good pre-shindig bar is Stereo (great on a sunday night too when they have Headkandi on) just down from Foundation towards the quayside - again good house tunes. Not too sure about the R'n'B music though in Newcastle.

A good day/early evening drinking venue is Jesmond - a strip of about 4/5 bars in a posh area about 1.5miles from the city. Everyone normally sits outside (even in the winter) in the beer gardens looking onto the main street to do a spot of people watching.

Travel Tips for Newcastle upon Tyne

High Level Bridge

by sandysmith

The High Level Bridge was built in 1849 and for the first time linked Newcastle with London by rail (previously, trains stopped at Gateshead). In addition to the railway, the lower deck of this bridge carries a roadway - another innovation of its day. I was fortunate as I snapped this close up of the bridge to get the train crossing in one direction whilst a bus was also crossing the bridge underneath.

Quayside Sculptures

by steventilly

There are a variety of good and unusual sculptures on the Quayside. This is my favourite, Swirle Pavilion. To be honest, I'm not sure what it represents but it is engraved inside with place names such as Malmo and Rotterdam, so there is obviously a seafaring connection.
Incidentally, the gold ball is 2 metres in diameter, and is 3.5 - 4 metres off the ground and it's unlikely that it is really solid gold!

Geordie Accent

by keeweechic

'Geordie' is the regional dialect which is associated with the North East of England, although there are some variations of this within the region. The most widely agreed definition of the Geordie 'homeland' covers the group of towns that lie on either side of the Tyne River and includes Newcastle-upon-Tyne through to Whitley Bay on the north bank, and Gateshead through to South Shields on the south. There are some similarities between 'Geordie' and Scandinavian languages, which have their origins in the times of Viking occupation.

Off to the seaside with bugger all money

by sourbugger

Whitley Bay is Newcastle's downmarket seaside suburb.

During the 1980's, when Harry Enfield was funny, he created a character called Loadsmoney. He was based on an Essex plasterer who made his wads and liked to show it off in the most vulgar way possible.

The character became a phenomenon, with football supporters waving bunches of fivers in the face of Northern team supporters (like Newcastle) and shouting ' Loadsamoney'.

Later, Enfield developed a Geordie character called 'Buggerallmoney' . If Buggerall went on Holiday, then it would be to Whitley Bay on the then new-fangled Metro (without paying of course)

There are only 2 things to do in Whitley Bay :

1) Watch the sea crashing in

2) Get drunk

Avoid.

The irony is of course that Buggerall and his mates now get on the metro, go in the other direction to the Airport and fly off to Florida. Loadsamoney could now probably not afford a B&B in Whitley Bay !

Metro Centre (Largest shopping complex in Europe)

by Fen about Metro Centre (Largest shopping complex in Europe)

The Metro Centre is one of the largest shopping and leisure complex in Europe. Attractions include Metroland, Europe's largest indoor theme park, a bowling alley Megabowl, a multi screen cinema, more than 50 restaurants, bars, and cafes and over 350 shops. It also boasts 12,000 free parking spaces, a bus station, a railway station and a coach park. With something for everyone it is not difficult to see why The Metro Centre has become the North's number one attraction with visitors from all corners of the globe.
