As a student, eating out is often off the cards...
Top 10 Student Bars in Newcastle
By Student Cribs | September 27, 2018
Welcome to Newcastle, where alcohol is practically cheaper than water. For those Londoners migrating north to this city of unlimited chaos and debauchery, you might be feeling a little clueless on where to start with so many bars at your beck and call. Here’s a quick guide on where you should be spending your time and cash.
1- Soho bar
Is there a better way to start your night than with a blueberry trebles, the drink we all love to hate? Cheap and cheerful head to Soho Bar for chart toppers and a good boogie.
Can’t decide what kind of music you want to try and snog someone to? Never fear, Digital is here. With multiple rooms and genres of music, everyone in your crew will be satisfied. Digital Mondays are practically a right of passage in the toon.
Who doesn’t love cocktails? The drinks menu at Floritas will have your mouth watering and after a few of them your toes tapping. Their happy hour deal from Sunday-Friday includes 2 for the price of 1 from 5-8pm so don’t be boring and grab yourself a mojito!
4- Bar Blanc
For those looking for a more relaxing setting, Bar Blanc is a gem nestled in the heart of the student area, Jesmond. But don’t get too comfy, things heat up as the night goes on and the bar will be rammed by 11pm. Prices are very reasonable so you won’t have to stress about funds.
5- The Cut
Bored of Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus blaring until the early hours? Head to the Cut, a fan favourite for Hip Hop, RnB and songs that will throw you back to 2005. Inspired by ‘Berlin squat parties and Manhattan loft parties’, this quirky club deserves at least one visit.
Bijoux is the spot in town, vacated by Geordie shore cast members since season 1. If you ever saw Charlotte or Chloe humping the floor in VIP or swilling Gary, it was probably in Bijoux. Aside from its Tv fame, Tiger Tiger remains a beloved student hangout, £5 for 3 trebles will have Londoners picking their jaw up off the floor.
7- Tiger Tiger
Located in the centre of town, many drunken nights can wind up in Tiger Tiger. Although slightly spenny on a Saturday, this veteran club boasts a variety of music, reasonably priced drinks and the promise of a party everyday of the week.
8- Tup Tup Palace
If you’re looking for a place to celebrate, Tup Tup Palace should be at the top of your list. You won’t have to break the bank for a table and their private booths will have you feeling like royalty!!
Every drunk girls dream: a club where dance on the tables is not just tolerated but encouraged! Head down to Bierkellers for a mix of chart toppers and german beats. Entry is cheaper than a student meal deal so you have no excuse to not grab a stein (or two) and party on the furniture.
Described as “an alcoholic heaven for Newcastle students”, Flares is a fan favourite amongst the weekly clubbers. Cheap drinks, a light up dance floor and free entry on student nights makes this club the perfect place to let loose and scream sing to cringey tunes.
So as you can see, the Newcastle clubbing scene can fulfil all your wildest dreams whether you’re in the mood to rave and misbehave or just settle in for an afternoon sesh with the gang.
