Florita’s Miami Bar

Claiming the #1 spot for this year’s¬†top nightclub in Newcastle is Florita‚Äôs Miami Bar located in the heart of Newcastle on Collingwood Street. Once inside think tropics, think Miami vice, think cocktails‚Ķ and the best DJs the North has to offer! ‚ÄėWith a VIP suite graced by the likes of Gaga, the sexiest dance floor, a huge outdoor garden‚Äô¬†Florita‚Äôs is slick overall club that only gets better when neighboring club Madam Koo‚Äôs and Baby Lynch (all interconnected) team up and open their doors to expand the capacity and experience.


Recommendation; go early in the week to experience Club Tropicana (Mondays) or Waikiki (Tuesdays).

Florita’s Bar

UPDATE: Adjacent to Florita’s is the newest nightclub to arrive; House of Smith (previously Baby Lynch). Owned by the same parent company, The Apartment Group) House of Smith describes itself as;

“The only true VIP nightclub Newcastle has to offer…[with] a ballroom to make Gatsby proud…50s glamour, the guilty appeal of the speak-easy, [and] the luxury of platinum table service.”

Open Monday through Saturday, every day has its own attraction; from it’s busiest night; Tuesday, when Flortia’s and House of Smith combine to provide an all out student night that is Waikiki, to the more American themed night; The Manhattan Project on Thursdays where the sounds of Drake and RnB HipHop take centre stage.

O2 Academy

A large club that hosts the biggest names in music from Skrillex to Bloc Party the O2 Academy has rocked Newcastle. The multimillion pound venue also hosts the wildest night in Newcastle with a raw, anything goes ethos. Think bouncy castles, fire breathing girls, and type of music that gets the whole club singing, chanting and raving…think ChelseaDagger, followed by Antidote.

Recommendation; DirtyPOP on Fridays.

Bambu Crowd



Legends hold host to the longest running student night in Newcastle: Deluge on Wednesday (that plays electro, commercial music) as well as many other events such as What Da Funk, the rap metal hip hop rock crossover night. The 

underground club is known for its messy nights out and heavy hitting music. 

Legends has serious upped its game within the Newcastle nightclub circuit with the introduction of Blacklight on Thursdays. Consistently attracting between 1000-1500 people each Thursday night, Blacklight is establishing itself as a must on the Newcastle circuit. 

Recommendation:  #1 Choice: Blacklight on Thursdays #2 Choice: Deluge Wednesdays



Located on the Diamond Strip in the heart of Newcastle, Ohso makes the top 10 for its music, drinks and crowd…Standard! It also has two floors, one underground with a large party vibe and the upstairs floor a more chilled out area. 

Recommendation: Guilty on Thursdays
Ohso Crowd


Tup Tup Palace

Regarded as the top premier club in Newcastle, TupTup Palace rounds off the top 10 nightclubs to visit in Newcastle. Small on the inside it fills up quickly and with amazing décor such as indoor waterfalls it can be easily be argued as Newcastle most flashy club. It has also been graced by the likes of Kayne West, Dizzee Rascal and Ne-Yo to name but a few, yet TupTup Palace has gained a very pretentious reputation which is reflected by its low rank in the top 10.

Recommendation: Lovedough on Thursdays

Tup Tup Palace, Newcastle
