If you're staying in one of our serviced apartments in Newcastle, why not unwind in one of the city's numerous beer gardens? Throughout the city, there are several beer gardens. We've compiled a list of some of the locals' favourite hidden treasures and hot spots.
1) The Stand
The Stand on High Bridge is more than just a great place to eat. There's also a beer garden, which is underrated amongst newcomers to the city. So, if you want to drink a few beers before attending a comedy concert or have a few drinks before dining at The Stand's wonderful cafe, be sure to give this spot a visit and remember to wear your sunnies.
2) Alvino's formal etymology
Bar 52 is directly across the street from Alvino's, one of Newcastle's most well-known cocktail bars. In addition to a highly intriguing and diverse selection of tipples to suit all tastes, its roof is a great area to enjoy them al fresco style.
You can book a table on their website.
Don't be deceived by one of Newcastle's oldest watering places hidden right next to the High-Level Bridge if you don't believe it's the kind of location for a beer garden. There are benches and stools out back if you want to take a rest after a few drinks in the sun.
4) The Bank/ Switch
While many people are aware of the various outdoor dining spaces located outside of neighbours Blonde Barrel and Rusty's, few are aware of the large connected roof terrace that spans both famous pubs across the street.
5) The Tipsy Cow
The Tipsy Cow, located just next to the Geordie Stottie café on Blandford Street (behind Lane 7), is a short distance away and has amassed quite a following since its debut last summer. It has already included outdoor celebrity performances such as dancing queen Angie Brown, with a bevvy of more scheduled in the coming months.
6) The Forth
Another popular spot that isn't well-known for its outside space. However, with the sun shining brightly in the Geordie sky, it is excellent for catching up with friends.
While there is enough to eat from Aveika's food menu inside, as well as plenty of dancing as the sun sets, the terrace at the back of the Quayside venue, replete with luxurious couches and its own bar, is now the ideal spot to enjoy some sun-soaked meals and beverages.
You can reserve a seat on the Aveika website.
8) The Riverside
If you've been along the Quayside recently, you may have spotted construction around the back of the iconic club and performance venue. You won't want to leave Newcastle without stopping in here first!
