Or you can visit Tokyo, conveniently located on Westgate Road, where the cocktails are as gorgeous as the panoramic views from its rooftop terrace.

Make your way down towards Newcastle Quayside, stopping off for a vintage inspired cocktail at Colonel Porter’s Emporium or for inventive mixology, try the ever-popular Livello both located on Dean Street. Close by you’ll discover the ultra-chic Japanese restaurant  Aveika, and the effortlessly elegant Tiger Hornsby, both infamous for their impressive cocktail menus.

Just across the water in Gateshead, is SIX situated within BALTIC. The restaurant and bar offers artfully crafted cocktails with an enviable view over the Tyne.

Jesmond  locals are also spoiled for choice of cocktails, as Asian fusion restaurant Sohe shakes up cosmopolitan cocktails and hosts free monthly cocktail tasting events where you can find your new favourite. As You Like It is one of Jesmond's all-time favourite spots for classic and contemporary cocktails, and if live DJs and cocktails sound like your ideal night out, make a stop at the Holy Hobo.
