Cocktails and Sharing Platter's at Lola Jeans
This is one of our favourite bar's in town. Situated on Market Street near the Theatre Royal the location is perfectly situated to meet up with friends. I love the decor and vibe - think chandeliers, flickering candles and exposed brickwork. Lola Jean's has a definite grown up feel and offers table service. We love their North East inspired cocktail list and Fog on the Tyne is probably my hubby's favourite drink at the moment. They also serve the most amazing steak sharing platters and triple cooked chips.
Dat Bar is next door to Lola Jeans but couldn't be anymore different. This bar has more of an underground feel to it and specialises in Craft beers. The crowd is always mixed and I love the comic strip interior and 'proper' music. I'm not a great beer lover so always order a glass of prosecco (it's cheaper than the beer!) whilst hubby deliberates over something new to try. There are always regular favourites on offer along with something a little different. My brother still talks about the smoked beer he had here a few month's ago so a fab place to discover something new.
Macbeth at Northern Stage
We ended our evening with a trip to Northern Stage which is fast becoming one of our favourite theatres. We always find their shows push the boundaries of traditional theatre and Macbeth did not disappoint.
So we were back at home just after 9pm which is a far cry from our younger days when it was more like 3am. I do think we had a better time though!
