We’ll be doing our duty as Nights Out In Newcastle representatives and getting stuck in trying all the food and drink at Summer Storeys as we are big fans of everyone involved and can’t wait to see what it is like.  

Tickets for Summer Storeys cost £3 per person and are available to buy online at (for guaranteed fast entry) or on the door.  Families and pets are welcome.

Organiser Josh Rose, co- director of Jam Jar Jesmond, said: “Newcastle’s food and drink scene is thriving, especially with the growing number of exciting street food concepts on offer, and we wanted to celebrate that by organising a series of exclusive summer get-togethers in a unique city centre rooftop location.  

“When we were researching locations, we decided that there’s no better place to host a rooftop party than right next to St James’ Park – one of the city’s most famous and best loved spots.

“We’ll be transforming the Barrack Road car park into a hidden urban ‘concrete jungle’ haven, where people can relax in the sunshine, soak up beautiful views of the city, enjoy great music and taste fantastic food and drink from some of Newcastle’s best independent traders.”
