Looking for something to do before the fireworks on the Quayside? Sick of fighting through the tosspots kicking off outside The Gate? To help avoid that all-too-familiar feeling of disappointment we all experience on that fateful December night, we’ve assembled a list of all the best places holding New Year’s Eve parties in Newcastle.
No28, Nelson Street
Tarantino themed New Years Ball
Our favourite little hideaway, No28, is holding a Tarantino-themed ball on NYE. With tickets costing just £10 , all guests will receive complementary drinks and canapes on arrival. Also, there are several drinks offer on all night with bottles of prosecco just £15 all night and champers for £25 – simply don your yellow jumpsuit, and get ready to do the jive.
Tiger Hornsby, Sandhill
Peacock Masquerade party
Just a stone’s throw away from the quayside festivities, Tiger Hornsby is holding a ‘Peacock Masquerade ball’ with a champagne cocktail reception, DJs and live music and a wristband allowing you to nip out at midnight to see the fireworks over the river.
MSA, Hood Street
Party until 7am at Tyne and Dine’s favourite late bar MSA. Leading up to midnight, MSA is holding a Sin City themed party, with table service and the best cocktail menu in Newcastle (that’s just our opinion). After midnight, the bar will transform into Sons of the City – a night previously held at theCUT – open until the early hours for mischief and mayhem at MSA.
Ernest, Boyd Street
If you fancy something a bit more chilled out, then head down the Ouseburn Valley to Ernest for a tasty meal and a bit of a boogie. Since it’s free entry, we recommend you book a table and get down there early to make the most of the festivities.
Lola Jean’s, Market Street
Earlier this year, one of our favourite coastal drinking holes opened a new bar in Newcastle, Lola Jean’s is a relaxed, cosy venue adorned with quirky ornaments and overlooked by a spectacular skull mural. There’s no entry free for its NYE bonanza, but table booking is a must – why not head down early and line your stomach before the festivities begin?
