Renowned around the UK for it’s nightlife, people from all of the country flock over the bridge so they can queue to get into a big dark room, drink copious amounts of alcohol, and dance the night away surrounded by fun-loving Geordies.
But with so many clubs and bars in the city, we thought we’d put our hangovers to good use and come up with a list of five of the best clubs in Newcastle.
Christened by its founder as “The Fabric of the North East”, Digital is the biggest club in Newcastle with the widest variety. From glittered up groups popping to grime or deep house on a Friday swapped with a VKD in each hand shouting your heads off to the Arctic Monkeys on a Monday. Whatever night you’re in too, Digital will provide.

Florita’s & House of Smith & Madam Koos
Can you really say you’ve been out in Newcastle if you haven’t hit the Diamond Strip? Technically yes, this is three different clubs, but on particular nights, and more often than not, the doors will open creating a maze of music you can float in and around leaving very confused people walking up with a stamp on their hand to a completely different club. All with unique and arty interiors, classy cocktails as well as cheap cocktails, this trio is a definite to end any night out on the toon.
World Head Quarters
Hidden behind an old bus station, WHQ is one of Newcastle’s gems. With cheap drinks and an array of fantastic DJs playing a variety of funk, soul, hip-hop, reggae, grime or garage, you can’t help but dance. With a fabulously funky vibe inside you can tell everyone around you is just out to have a good time and dance into the early hours of the morning. (And ladies, check out the nicest club toilets you’ll ever make best friends with a stranger in.)

A little more intimate, The Cut provides a change from regular mainstream clubs with unique line ups and a bit more of a quirky vibe. Sitting directly above Tup Tup Palace, the two are joined with a balcony room that is sometimes open if you fancy something a little different. Although The Cut hosts a great night out try not to loose your mates in the fog they call a smoke machine.

Concealed amongst the Chinese restaurants in China Town, Cosmic Ballroom steps underground with electronic DJ’s and performances from a bunch of different artists. With the low ceiling covered in army netting, or decorations to fit whatever party they’re throwing, the Ballroom doesn’t go half-heartedly to make sure you have a good night.
