    Newcastle is fairly well known for its large and varied selection of bars and clubs. In the city centre alone there are more than enough bars to go around and all handy to each other (for pub crawls). The clubs in Newcastle are spread around the city centre and Quayside.

    Our friends took us to see New Castle's Nightlife. We tried one place which was famous at the time. When we got there the doorman didn't let us enter because Cris was wearing sneakers. So we decided to try some other place.

    Planet Earth was a great place. Great music and lots of room to dance.

    Dress Code: Don't wear sneakers or any shoes which are quite similar or you can't enter famous places. Otherwice you can wear jeans and t-shirt etc.

    As well as enjoying the disco later in the evening you can also enjoy a spot of gambling on the evening's races. You don't have to be a great gambler to enjoy yourself.

    Food and drink: Food and drink

    There is a tremendous range of restaurants in the city. Particularly popular are the Italian and Indian restaurants which abound everywhere. There is a Chinatown based on Stowell Street where superb Chinese food is available. Many pubs sell bar-meals which are particularly good value.
    Newcastle is famed for its brewery and most pubs specialise in draught beer. British beer is dark and often not very cold. A speciality is Newcastle Brown, a strong, dark beer that is always sold in bottles and should be drunk a little at a time from a half pint glass.
    Best value for money is almost certainly J D Weatherspoon’s Union Chambers pub opposite the main railway station where drinks and food are available at excellent prices.

    by maykal Written Aug 26, 2002

    NEWCASTLE: The place to be is the Quayside, where there are several restaurants and bars, and most of the clubs are near here. One club I've recently been to is the Tuxedo Royale on the ship moored across the river in Gateshead just below the Tyne Bridge. This place markets itself as having 9 different rooms with 9 different styles of music, but it isn't quite as good as it sounds. When we went, the Mediterranean Bar and the Piano Bar were closed (and looked as if they had been for quite some time), and the Monte jazz bar reminded me of a supermarket! Angel Street is the 70's room, the Green Room for 80's music, and then go to the basement for recent music on a revolving dance floor.
    Looks good from the outside, but very 'cheesy' on the inside...but hopefully you will be too drunk to notice!

    Dress Code: People seemed to get in whatever they were wearing!

    It's a ship!

    It's got a revolving dance floor, several different 'rooms' with different music styles in each, and... wait for it... they've got Bikini Bar Maids. About as tacky as it gets, but hey - where else can you boogie on a ship? So OK, there's it's sister ship at Middlesbrough...

    Dress Code: Typical 'clubbin' gear - micro skirts & stringy tops, no denims or trainers.

    The alternative side of life in Newcastle - No fancy club rooms, in fact it's like dancing in your granny's living room. The tunes speak for themselves - Motown, Rare Groove, Funk, House, and the occasional punk track make an eclectic mix. The bar prices are startling similar to those in the pubs, and the people are not too beery.

    Members only, but if you get someone to sign you in, that's you a member! This keeps out the troublemakers, and the doorstaff are pretty good at spotting potential hooligans.

    Dress Code: Dress down or up as you see fit, just be cool with it and not too pissed and you'll get in. One of the few places in Newcastle where you can dance in trainers.

    There are many fabulous pubs and nightclubs to enrich the colour of the night in Newcastle. If you love dancing, crawling will be very interesting to experience the energy of people here.
