Clubbing, Cocktails and Comfort… 

Here at Nights Out In Newcastle we love to bring you the best in entertainment for your perfect Geordie night out.   We decided to review some of the regions best bars and clubs to help you decide where to go for your big night out.

We decided to review Jalou, a venue for those who really know their drinks. This low-lit, late-night bar with booth seating has long been a favourite of ours, hosting regular hip hop and R&B DJs.

Located next to Newcastle Central Station, this late night bar offers the perfect mix of essential nightlife ingredients: chic and understated decor, low level lighting, talented baristas and a most cutting edge cocktail menu.  Taking influences from some of the most innovative bar’s in the world Jalou brings you drink making techniques and flavour combinations never before seen in Newcastle.

The venues elegant Victorian facade and stunning purpose built terrace provides a perfect city centre haven for lounging and grazing from the informal food menu during the daytimes and early evenings.

The theme of Strawberries and Steam is it’s good to share! 

Fresh strawberries fused with London No 3 Gin, Extra Dry Vermouth, cranberry juice, fresh lime and strawberry tea.  All classic combinations they really work well together.

Served in a glass tea pot set and steamed ice cold it looks stunning and tastes ever better.
