One of the more stylish bars, just next door to raucous Rusty’s. The Blonde Barrel attracts after-work drinkers & concerts goers at the nearby arena and stocks one of the best craft beer selections of the scene.

Big screens show football, and there are drink deals on match days. Their food menu is perfect is great., too. Outside seating overlooks Times Square, but this may be limited in the cold Newcastle winters.

audience rating: 3 stars from 4 votes - click to vote

Situated above the popular bar Switch, The Loft is a dance music heaven, playing everything from house to dubstep. The decor is reminiscent of a New York loft party (which may go someway in explaining the name of the bar).

Despite its music policy, The Loft closes relatively early in comparison to other clubs in the area. It is, however, free entry all night and offers a space to dance.
