No one knows how to party quite like the Geordies. If you’re thinking that a Newcastle hen do might be better than the rest, we think you could be right. To help you make the most of your hen weekend on the Toon, we’ve outlined a few things to know before you go.
Where are the best bars in Newcastle?
The best party bars can be found at the Quayside, a lively stretch along the river.
Starting with Pitcher & Piano, you’ll be perfectly positioned to start your crawl along the river and into the heart of the city centre. After sipping a few delicious cocktails, pass by Brewdog’s Urban Garden on a sunny mild evening – or into Slug & Lettuce for some shelter – before getting a taste of Newcastle’s clubbing venues.
How can I find hen party accommodation in Newcastle?
Not all hotels accept bookings from large groups or hen parties, so it’s important to know where you can and can’t stay. Plus, when it comes to Airbnbs for hen parties, you’ll need to be careful not to accidentally go against booking terms.
We recommend booking a specialist hen party house for your weekend on the Toon. Having your own private home-from-home will be a massive bonus for all the girls.
Amongst other perks, you won’t have to worry about getting back from the club later than expected. Plus, if you book a butler in the buff, you can surprise your bride-to-be with raunchy, private entertainment in the comfort of an exclusive space. What’s not to love?
Which nightclubs in Newcastle are best for a hen do?
After you’ve hopped between a few of the best bars, we’d suggest choosing one or two of the many vibrant nightclubs in Newcastle.
If you love disco balls, ‘70s hits and a friendly vibe, there’s only one place for your hen do. Heading to Flares Newcastle promises a night of your favourite cheesy anthems and fantastic drinks deals, too.
For smooth RnB, the glamorous Tup Tup Palace should tick all the right boxes for your hen party in Newcastle. Famed for its popular weekly line-up featuring an eclectic mix of artists and genres, this nightclub also offers private bookings and an exclusive VIP experience perfect for any classy bride-to-be.
Will I need cash?
Even though the walk from Newcastle Quayside to the city centre is downhill, you might prefer to take a taxi if you don’t fancy going the whole way in heels.
For this reason, we’d always recommended keeping some spare cash in your purse on any night out in Newcastle. You might also need to keep some for when you stop for a takeaway on the way home, too.
