From disco lounges with New York fusion food to watering holes fronting a choice of live music or interactive darts, here's our lowdown on activities, bars and restaurants in The Gate Newcastle. There's a little something for every occasion, including dates or group nights out, so make sure you're having a gander.
While you might know WonderBar best for its high-tech darts oches and screenings of Newcastle United accompanied by live entertainment, the cool watering hole also has a lineup of events that aren't to be missed. Whether you're a fan of bottomless pizza parties, crowd karaoke, themed bingo parties or live music, there's plenty for you to enjoy here.
DJs in a disco lounge, New York-inspired fare and killer cocktails - those are the three reasons why The Hustle is one of our favourites out of all The Gate, Newcastle bars. It's fronting a choice of mac 'n' cheese or food from NYC's Little Italy, Chinatown and more, alongside trees of unique drinks. Better yet, the live entertainment will keep your grooving 'til late.
After restaurants near The Gate Newcastle? Point Blank Shooting may be whipping up some of the tastiest American-style eats and bottomless brunches, but that's not what it's best known for.
