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!

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?
