Once inside think tropics, think Miami vice, think cocktails… and the best DJs the North has to offer! ‘With a VIP suite graced by the likes of Gaga, the sexiest dance floor, a huge outdoor garden’ Florita’s is slick overall club that only gets better when neighboring club Madam Koo’s 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).
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.
