The Forth

From the live music offering to the colourful interiors and street food-style suppers, The Forth is one quirky place to hang out with your mates. To top it off, the cosy open fires will keep you warm in winter, while the roof terrace is perfect for some summer sun.

Billy Bootleggers Newcastle

Listen to the sweet sound of blues and rockabilly throughout the week at Billy Bootleggers, an all-American bar laced with vintage memorabilia. Fronting cosy booths as well as wooden panelling, it resembles a quirky cabin full of trinkets. On the menu, there's an extensive iced tea range all the way from Boston to Tokyo, in addition to special moonshine plus grapefruit and ginger rye old fashioneds.

The Town Wall

It may be a pub, but The Town Wall is worth a mention when rounding up the city's quirky bars. Set in a Grade-II listed building, this place was once the home of Thomas Bewick - ideal for history buffs - and boasts a secret cinema room.

Lady Greys

If you're hankering for traditional and full of interesting trinkets, then Lady Greys is the space for you. The topsy-turvy little pub is filled with decorations such as type writers, globes and historic prints, all found alongside an excellent selection of cask ales or tasty bites to eat.
