Along with an abundance of eateries, Newcastle is home to many interesting bars, a grand concert hall, and the world-class Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art. Newcastle boasts a formidable nightlife; the city’s young women are well known for going out without coats in sub-zero temperatures. Amongst Newcastle restaurants and gastro pubs, expect a dazzling range of global cuisines, and choices ranging from gourmet, to pub grub.
For Indian flavours in Newcastle, pop on down to Dabbawal, just a few minutes on foot from Newcastle Rail Station and central parking. No ordinary Indian, Dabbawal specialises in dishes inspired by Dabbawals, Mumbai’s “lunchbox men” who serve the city with fresh and vibrant street food. Inside, enjoy a bright, modern interior, and sample delights like railway lamb curry & saffron pulao and Kerala malabari salmon.
If European flavours are more your thing, it’s got to be Marco Peirre White’s Steakhouse Bar & Grill. In a chic setting, enjoy eclectic gourmet menu options, like braised oxtail with sweet potato & glazed button onions, or halibut steak with creamed potatoes & sauce tartare.
