Pleased to Meet You, High Bridge Street

This swanky bar has been supplying the people of Newcastle with the finest gin, craft beers, renowned wines and delicious cocktails for 3 years. In this time, it has gone from strength to strength, and is easily one of our favourite bars in the country, never mind just Newcastle! 

They also have a great restaurant, led by Head Chef David Kennedy, which consists of the finest produce from across the North East, including their famous Sunday Dinners. 

Our Favourite Tipple: Their signature cocktail, aptly-named ‘Pleased to Meet You’ is really tasty. With Gabriel Boudier Saffron Gin, Yellow Chartreuse, Licor 43 and DiSaronno Amaretto, what’s not to love?

The Botanist, Monument Mall

Stepping into this bar feels as if you are stepping into an enchanted forest with an incredibly magical ambience. With a huge selection of botanical cocktails, craft beers and ales, Champagne and wine, a visit to The Botanist is an absolute necessity. Head out onto the terrace for a great view of Grey Street.

Their food, inspired by the deli, rotisserie and BBQ is simply delicious. 

Our Favourite Tipple: The highly-Instagrammable ‘Gin featuring Strawberry and Cucumber’ is served in a watering can. Yep, you read it right - an actual, full-sized watering can! Obviously meant for sharing. (Or maybe not if you’re feeling extra thirsty.)
