Nightlife in Newcastle

Newcastle's nightlife is legendary. Much of the fun is centred around pubs and their diverse range of beers in both the city centre and Quayside. The Quayside is the hub of glamorous clubbing venues, as is the Bigg Market area of the city centre. For top musical entertainment, the spectacular Sage, across the river on Gateshead Quay is a must, with a programme of modern and classical music.
