A staple of Newcastle's nightlife scene, Jalou is the place for good drinks and great music. Shake things up with a cheeky masterclass or a few happy hour tipples before taking to the terrace then getting down to hip-hop, dancehall and R&B.

A proper party palace, Livello is the city centre club bringing you imaginative nights with live musicians, weekly events and big name DJs. If you're in need of a big night out this year, make one to remember with a private area here.

Lover of all things sports? Head over to Wonderbar and celebrate your birthday with your best mates while cheering on all the action and tucking into hearty grub. What's more, this Newgate Street spot has a number of dartboards if you fancy a few games.

Keeping it low-key? Opt for The Holy Hobo's lip-smacking kebab selection washed down with frozen drinks and modern cocktails. With leafy decor and rustic charm, this is a great choice for alternative birthday parties in Newcastle.
