Proud history.

THE Cooperage Bar & Venue is one of the oldest pubs inNewcastle and is locatedwithin a historic Grade I-listedbuilding on the city's vibrant Quayside.

Between the High Level andSwing Bridge, overlooking the River Tyne, it is a three-storey, timber-framed property whichdates to the 14th century and was originally a merchant's house. The building was a cooper'sworkshop making barrels. Reputedly haunted, the property is atmospheric and retains a wealth of character, with beamed ceilings andexposed brick and stone walls. The main bar occupies two rooms on the ground floor, while the nightclub occupies five rooms on the first and second floors. The real ale bar and nightclub both have attracted an excellent following from stu-dents, locals and Quayside revellers. Pub initiatives such as Polish Vodka nights, Greek nightsand Salsa classes, were a hit.
