Food and drink in Newcastle


1. Sample international gins at Dacantus

Swing by the Gin Lab at Dacantus to taste a range of gins from around the world—or savour one of their 40 speciality gin and tonic concoctions served in a fishbowl-style glasses with extra-large ice cubes.


2. Tuck into the best local produce

Feast on seasonal, locally-sourced meat and produce from the farms, coasts, and woodlands at Pleased To Meet You. Fusing modern British fare with classic French technique, you’re sure to find something to please all palates (vegetarians too!).


3. Take in the views from BALTIC's rooftop restaurant

Enjoy delicious dining with panoramic views at Six, BALTIC’s rooftop restaurant. For an extra-special treat, stop by for Champagne Afternoon Tea and sample a selection of savoury sandwiches, sweet treats (be sure to try the glazed passionfruit and coconut cake), and of course, a glass of bubbly.

4. Get your dance on at Madame Koo

There’s only one rule at Madame Koo: there are no rules. Billed as a hidden bar and sneaky disco, prepare for a night of dancing, drinking, debauchery… until dawn.


5. Head back to prohibition times at House of Smith

Journey back in time to the days of Gatsby at House of Smith. Fusing a speakeasy style décor with artisan-crafted cocktails, it’s the type of spot where strangers become friends… and friends make history.


6. Enjoy Japanese cuisine with a twist at AVEIKA

For a contemporary twist on Japanese cuisine, head to Quayside’s AVEIKA for Robata-grilled beef skewers or “inside-out” sushi. Dining with a group? Consider ordering a sharing platter so you can sample a bit of everything.
