The venue opens this weekend to the public and offers a music venue, two bars and plenty more.

Newcastle’s newest music venue opens its door this weekend and we got an early look at what gig goers and social drinkers alike can expect.

Sat on St Michael's Road, The Grove will be hosting its first public event – billed as a Night Dancing party night – on Saturday, March 11 but opened for drinks from the site’s bars on Friday, March 10.

The space boasts a 400 capacity music venue and two bars including one cocktail bar with a roof terrace over two floors with the hope it will become a thriving community space.

The venue’s founders Charlie Dancer and Cole Gilroy are also hoping to see community events, workshops and exhibitions use the space in addition to public and private events.

A short walk from the trendy Ouseburn area, The Grove seems to be looking to expand the artistry from the small region into Byker, following in the footsteps of the Tyne Bank Brewery, a taproom and event space which can be found on Walker Road.

The Grove’s jewel in the crown is a central courtyard which we can already see proving to be hugely popular in the summer months while the elevated outdoors area, which is well served by a cocktail bar, offers great views of the famous Byker Wall.

The downstairs bar offers standard music venue fanfare with the addition of a great mix of well known beer stockists and offerings from local breweries.
