Yeah that's their roof terrace. It's actually really nice...you can just see the edge of the sail that often covers it. That wall is really high so you can't see over it....and once lit with candles, fairy lights etc is very nice...even though the tree looks a bit awful in this shot.

There's nice glass sliding doors that give the upstairs a feel of inside-out, as the bar kinda continues out.

Not been in ages, but was always pretty cool, and very nice.

The roof terrace at Tokyo is really nice, although the bar has seen better days - it could do with a bit of a sprucing up... The only problem is that with the smoking ban it's full of people smoking!

tokyo's roof terrace is one of the best drinking spots in newcastle. it is pretty small, and kind of enclosed by surrounding buildings, but they really make the best of the space through good design. also make the best cocktails in newcastle, though that's not saying much.

Newcastle hotel to open on schedule
by Peter McCusker, The Journal, April 20th 2011



WORK on Newcastle's newest hotel is well under way with the first guests expected through the doors by Christmas.

Preparatory work on the construction of the 98-bedroom, six-storey Sleeperz hotel is now complete, with the foundations and main tower crane in place.

Newcastle-based Metnor Construction is the main contractor for the development, which is providing work for up to 90 people during the building project period.

Other local sub-contractors appointed to the project include Steve Roberts Ltd, from North Shields, which is supplying the groundworks; Wooler-based business Glendale Engineering (Milfield) Ltd, providing the structural steel; and Newcastle companies Visual Concept who are supplying the windows and curtain walling, and Chemplas, who are carrying out the roofing and cladding works.

The circa £9m Newcastle Sleeperz is next to Central Station, at the bottom of Westgate Road.

Grabbed these shots last night, sunlight and shadows didn't help and I only had my small digital camera with me but at least it shows some progress with the size of the rooms clearly visible.

this will be our flatiron building.

on a related note - are there any thin, flatiron type buildings existing in newcastle today? I know there's the central bar in gateshead....no others spring immediately to mind.

They look exactly the same size as the first Sleeperz, the one in Cardiff that I stayed in (and showed the internal photos of on this thread) last summer.

The rooms are small compartments, but they are quite pleasant for a couple of nights stay!

You know what it reminded me of - Celebrity Squares - for those too young to remember the hit show of its time, take a look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hn6Mm38C1bc

Cross House is a bit Flatironish.

I still like it. The rooms are fine for their purpose of a stay for a couple of nights.

Closest I can think of is 25 King Street on the Quayside, which not the same shape as the Flatiron Building in New York it's a close call (perhaps).



Couple of shots of the Flatiron Building, taken from the Empire State Building in April 2008.





Of course not forgetting the Central Bar:

That triangular building on Westgate Road near the Assembly Rooms is most Flatiron-like but not quite so narrow.
