Decantus, Newcastle

Decantus on Newcastle's stunning Grey Street is a popular gin bar which also serves Spanish-style bar snacks and sharing plates for two. More as an accompaniment for a night out rather than a full meal, enjoy a nibble of gourmet tapas whilst you sip a gin cocktail at Decantus. This is a great option for couples on a date night in Newcastle or drinks with a friend following a show at nearby Theatre Royal.  

Boquerones Tapas and Cocktails, Heaton
