If you're staying in one of our serviced apartments in Newcastle, why not sit back and relax in one of the city's many beer gardens? There are countless beer gardens scattered across the city. Below, we have tied together some of the hidden gems and favourites with the locals.
1) The Stand
The Stand on High Bridge isn't simply for amazing food. There's also a beer garden, which is very underrated. So make sure to pay this place visit and put your shades on in the sunshine if you want to drink a few jars before going to a comedy show or have a few drinks before eating at The Stand's fantastic cafe.
Alvino's, one of Newcastle's most well-known cocktail bars, is just across the street from Bar 52. And, in addition to a highly fascinating and very varied variety of tipples to satisfy all tastes, its roof is an ideal spot to enjoy them al fresco style.
You can now book a table on their website.
3) The Bridge Hotel
You may not think it's the type of setting for a beer garden, but don't be fooled by one of Newcastle's oldest watering holes tucked right next to the High Level Bridge.
There are benches and seats out back if you want to take a break when you have a couple of drinks in the sunshine.
4) The Bank/ Switch
While many people are aware of the numerous outdoor seating areas outside of adjacent neighbours Blonde Barrel and Rusty's, few are aware that there is a big connecting roof terrace across both popular pubs across the street.
5) The Tipsy Cow
The Tipsy Cow, located directly next to the Geordie Stottie café on Blandford Street (behind Lane 7), is a short distance away and already has a large following since its launch last summer. It has already featured outdoor concerts by celebrities such as dance queen Angie Brown, with a slew of more planned in the following months.

6) The Forth
Another location that, while popular, isn't well-known for its outside space. However, it is ideal for catching up with friends as the sun shines brightly in the Geordie sky.
While there is much to eat from Aveika's food menu within, as well as lots of dancing once the sun goes down, the terrace at the back of the Quayside venue, complete with plush couches and its own bar, is now the ideal place to enjoy some sun-soaked cuisine and beverages.
You can reserve a seat on the Aveika website.
If you've been walking down the Quayside recently, you may have noticed work going on around the rear of the famed club and performance venue.
The beer garden, which was quite popular before the North East lockdown last year, is returning, along with food sellers.
