On your weekend getaway, you'll be snapping photos and sharing them with your friends in your group chat or on social media. Some visitors like snapping photographs so that they can remember their time in Newcastle. So, do you want to know where you can get the finest Instagram shots? Here are the best places in Newcastle for an Insta photoshoot.
1) Slug and Lettuce
Newcastle's second opening of the chain bar appeared in late 2019. Slug & Lettuce pubs around the UK have had extensive refurbishments in the last couple of years, transforming them from dark forgotten about venues into some of the most "must-see" Instagram spots.
The newest Slug and Lettuce is on Grainger Street, where Yates used to be, and the interiors are decorated with birdcage booths, neon lighting, flower seats, and cocktail trees, all of which are created with hashtags and filters in mind. Although not for everyone, it's a terrific place to go for a girls' night out or hen weekend when picture ops and cheap cocktails are top priorities.
2) All Bar one
There are numerous recommendations throughout the beverages menu if you want to try something new. You definitely won't be short for new drinks to try at All Bar one. The Blossom Birdcage Sharer offers delicious beverages to four people in an exquisite flowery birdcage if you prefer cocktails.
The menu has a well-balanced selection of lunch, main courses, and desserts, as well as nutritional power items if you're feeling particularly healthy. However, it's the breakfast that has piqued my interest, with a great selection of classic dishes that would be ideal for a pre-shopping treat.
Fizz Friday, Tapas Tuesday, 5 O'Clocktails, Set Menus, and 2 for 1s are just a few of the deals available. They also offer an app with a loyalty card and birthday reminders.
Step into this charming small pub hidden down a back alley off Pilgrim Street, and you'll find yourself in a loft apartment feeling certainly more New York than Newcastle upon Tyne!
You'll be welcomed into a cosy bar on the ground floor before walking upstairs to the modest restaurant, which specialises in small foods served from an open kitchen. The Aviary, located on the top level of Horticulture, is a function area ideal for a private party or gathering.
4) The Purple Peacock
If you are looking for a bar that's bright and colourful, you'll enjoy The Purple Peacock, which is unquestionably the most luxurious spot in the Toon for a martini. With gold embellishments, colourful pillars, and flower garlands, the bar and restaurant are the closest Newcastle has to a palace, and if you need an excuse to dig out your tiara, here is it.
The beverages menu includes the standard selection of champagne, wines, gins, and beers, but it's the cocktails that stand out. The Purple Peacock, a speciality cocktail made with Ketel One Citroen, Port, Lemon Juice, Pineapple, and Blackcurrant and topped with a colourful peacock feather, will have you reaching for your camera before it ever hits the table. The bar makes an effort to create well-loved classics that aren't on the menu.
