The Prince lodge in Newcastle will offer the city a Bavarian booze experience as it leans into nostalgic slope holidays and vintage memorabilia.

A new alpine pub and year-round aprčs-ski cabin is set to open in Newcastle this July.

Inspired by traditional Austrian ski resorts, The Prince will feature authentic adaptations of skiing classics. Vintage skis, a DJ Gondola booth and karaoke booths will be staples of the premise, along with live sport coverage and a live music lineup on weekends.

The team behind Prince, who have also established Pumphreys and FRATE, have transformed the old city centre pub into the city’s only aprčs-ski spot. 

Bavarian culture has been the foundation of the aprčs-ski lodge, with staff members dressed in traditional Lederhosen and Dirndl attire to add to the authentic pub experience. From 4pm, the establishment will show major sporting fixtures in its imported timber-laden interior.

Classic skis and vintage memorabilia will line the walls in a pub sure to conjure memories of old cabins and ski-lodge holidays. The aprčs-ski cabin will open on the old site of The Green Man in Newcastle.

Co-curator of The Prince, Rob Clarkson, said: “We are thrilled to introduce The Prince to Newcastle, offering a unique concept that blends the charm of an Alpine Pub and all-year-round après-ski cabin with the vibrant spirit of our city.

“Our vision is to create a welcoming space where guests can unwind, enjoy exceptional drinks, and feel like they've been transported to the slopes of the Alps.

“This venture represents an exciting new chapter as we explore a market and concept that will bring a fresh and vibrant twist to Newcastle’s hospitality scene. We look forward to welcoming everyone to experience and enjoy our vision at The Prince.”
