Newcastle has become a mecca for partygoers and those in search of a wild night. A thriving university population has meant an influx of trendy and late night clubs that stay open until the early hours. But the nightlife isn’t just for students, there are cheesy clubs, R ‘n’ B clubs, dance clubs, house clubs, anything you can imagine!
Tup Tup Palace
Tup Tup Palace has become famed as a popular celebrity hangout, with international stars taking to their beautiful VIP area to relax after performances at the nearby arena. Drake, Ed Sheeran and 50 Cent have all stepped through the doors of the extravagant and luxuriously decorated club. Located close to The Diamond Strip and just a few minutes walk from Bigg Market, Tup Tup Palace is perfectly located for a nightclub crawl around Newcastle’s nightlife.
Another club that is just off The Diamond Strip, Livello is a high-end, high-energy nightclub boasts a luxury drinks list and a plush interior. Expect great music and a great time, with champagne flowing and an extensive outside area – perfect for socialising and taking a break from the crowds that are pulled in most nights.
Newcastle’s Tiger Tiger is one of the biggest clubs that the brand has in the UK with no less than seven party rooms, each offering a different style of music, a different vibe and a different type of crowd. Tiger Tiger is no frills and upbeat and has an impressive menu of cocktails and drink offers throughout the week and weekend.
The largest nightclub in Newcastle was ranked number 31 in the world by DJ Mag and once you experience a night in Digital, it’s easy to see why. The massive club extends over three floors and several rooms, with speciality club nights to suit every taste. ‘Digital Mondays’ are a popular night, with entry costing just 80p and drinks for as little as £1. When weekend falls, all three floors open their doors and all of Newcastle nightlife come flooding in to experience top class DJs and live music.
Madame Koo is a modest club that packs a big punch. The late night bar starts to attract crowds from around 11 pm and once the drinks get flowing and the music gets pumping, there’ll be no containing your dancing feet and you’ll be out on the dance floor with the best of them. Located on the famous Diamond Strip, it’s a great place to end the night if you’re ready for a late night party.
It’s not all about the loud music and late night dancing. Newcastle’s bars offer a veritable feast of quirky haunts and chilled venues, from lively and fun to relaxed and welcoming. The city centre has a never ending list of great places to share a drink and explore the evening atmosphere.
Floritas is the sister bar to late night club Madame Koos, specialising in cocktails and cited as a Miami Bar and Tropical Garden, it’s fun and tropical and is a perfect stop off if you’re heading for a casual drink on the streets of Newcastle.

The staff are fun and passionate about their craft and will ease you through all of the options on offer – and there are a lot of them!
The historic Grainger Market is where one of Newcastle nightlife’s hidden gems calls home. No 28 is classy and quirky with a seriously hipster vibe. It’s a hidden gem but a badly kept secret and it’s frequently full to bursting with people all desperate for a tasty drink.
