With vintage leather sofas, an cosy fire place and bare brick walls, this charming den is as comfortable as your own living room, with the added extra of punchy cocktails and an eclectic food menu alongside all sorts of music.

From the notorious jam jar cocktails through to the hearty American plates, Jam Jar in Jesmond is all sorts of cute and quirky. With date-night written all over it, the spot is perfect for a casual night that starts with inventive cocktails and ends with one of the milkshake mixes.

It may be a pub, but The Town Wall is worth a mention when rounding up Newcastle's quirky bars. Set in a Grade-II listed building, The Town Wall was once the home of Thomas Bewick as well as being part of the original ramifications to the city - perfect for history buffs.

Any Geordie cool kids knows that Lola Jeans is where it's at. The slick space has all sorts of unique features, including walls painted by local artists, a downstairs speakeasy and whopping plates of American comfort food.

If you're looking for traditional and full of interesting trinkets, then Lady Greys is the space for you. The topsy turvey little pub is filled with bits and bobs such as type writers, globes, and historical prints, all beside an excellent selection of cask ales.

You want cool? Alvinos have got it in spades. This quirky Newcastle bar is the place to be, with foosball tables, pinball machines, a brilliant happy hour, and DJs over the weekends.
