I gather from someone who used to work there that it is notorious for illegal substances, allegedly.

Driving past I guessed you weren't a regular.

It doesn't bode well for the Schooner, of course the management will be unaware, but even so the Three Tuns doesn't look to be the sort of place that might be frequented by hipster students enjoying the occasional herbal cheroot as they put the world to rights.

Hope it works for them but not sure it will last, not as what they 'say' it is anyway. Would you want to take your beloved in there for an 10quid glass of wine to emerge, stading in a pool of vomit messing up your brogues.

It might have a future as something less upmarket, or though I remain sceptical about the entire regeneration and NCC's will to make re changes, to survive long enough for the surroundings to go upmarket.

It'll certainly last if NCC vision for the Bigg Market is to make it more of a central food and drink destination, getting rid of the shite takeaways and crap bars. This and a couple of others with the NE1 ground works seem to be catalyst for change.

I used to live in Hale and probably have rose coloured glasses as to more sedate nightlife there .

It's about if and right now it's more about painting things than what is really needed which is active regulation of some of the more 'colourful' emporia. Gresham's law applies as much to bars as it does to money and 'bad' bars drive out good ones, rarely the other way round.

The only way the lousy bars and kebab shops will go is if they are 'licensed out' though licensing reviews - earlier closing, food led conditions and so on. There's enough disorder there to run with it. Without that... if you re a kebab shop, why would you close, NE1 has paid for your premises to be tarted up, keep taking the money

I hope their plans work but so far NCC licencing rarely shows any will to do much on regulating anything.

Glasshouse

Licensing review.

The day Sambucca took over I called the council to advise them that the new operator was in breach of the licensing conditions....

I assume it will tread the road to nastyness, though the sports bar concpet has never really flown in Newcastle save for boozers selling drink on match days and perhaps 'national' events.

Shall we start the 'when will the Chronic' notice clock ?
And the answer was 21 days. Congratulations on more great journalism to the team at NCJ.

Can anyone help me reconciling:

The venue at Newcastle’s 55 Degrees North has undergone a multimillion pound renovation after being bought by the High Street Group last summer.

Gary Hutchinson, the former Sunderland AFC commercial director and head of Club Wembley, bought the bar from former owner Bob Senior in 2017 as the first focus for his firm Chrysalis Leisure, and then formed a a joint venture with London investors called PAGH Ventures to run the operation, ploughing £750,000 into a massive transformation of the venue which was unveiled in June 2018.
When the renovation seems to have simply involved the removal of the higher quality features installed in the £750k refurb' and and the installation of signs extolling the USA's number one combined beer and disinfectant.

The operator does have two other with the same brand, https://www.bar-52.co.uk/ which might explain the incongruous name on the site. Though some care might be needed clicking on search results as you could easily click on the website for a Newcastle establishment where gentlemen would enjoy each other's company [which is fine but might give some browser history 'issues' for some].

One of the tunnels is being repainted with NUFC type murals, which might last all of 2 weeks I suspect..

I suspect that the Bridge and Broad Chare will not be quaking in their boots....


Shuffleboard is like a small curling or like a small bowling?
I've found here some tables, but all of them look like curling.

Ahh, the sweet smell of snobbery. I think it'll most likely be fine, I quite like the Shark Club myself. Will probably have a look in Bar 52.

Not so much snobbery, though US bud is not for me, more that that the sportsbar concept - save for matchdays which is any pub with Sky does not seem to fly.

It is a difficult site and [snob or not] concepts way downmarket of this have failed there.

Shark probably survives because of the hotel, but there s not a great track record of the canadian hockey bar, places I know well working stand alone here.
