Newcastle’s nightlife is always changing
The only certainty is, Geordies are always in need of a pint.
Over the years we’ve seen some well-loved and cherished pubs close their doors- but they’ve not been forgotten.
So let’s take a trip down memory lane and look at some of the ones we have lost.
1. Printers Pie/Fleet Street
Its names were inevitable given it was the next-door neighbour to the Evening Chronicle offices. As popular with press folk as it was with revellers getting ready for a night on the nearby Bigg Market just up the lane.
2. Newcastle Hero
Long before Centurion opened, this was the place for a pint either before or after you used a train at Newcastle Central Station. Nowadays it's a Sainsburys catering for rail passengers and nearby city workers.
3. Barley Mow
Perched above the Quayside, this was THE place for many indie music lovers to flock to in the 80s and 90s, especially on Friday nights. It's fire-hit remains act as a sad reminder of its fall from grace.
4. Egypt Cottage
A great place to celebrity spot given its close proximity to the old Tyne Tees studios. When seminal Ch4 music show The Tube was filmed on City Road it was commonplace to see top artists call in for a tipple.
