DATE NIGHT: Your guide to a romantic dinner for two in Newcastle

Sometimes you just need to dig a little deeper when it comes to date night. Your number one bae deserves the best after all and not just when you’re trying to woo them. Commitment and constant effort friends. It’s pretty important. But if you’re stuck for places to go (the kind where you’re outnumbered by the cutlery) look no further than this top 5 list of fancy pants places to take your number one bae this date night.


Spanish cuisine anyone? Everyone, obviously. Bocados is the kind of place you want to go to and settle in for a nice romantic experience. It’s nice and cosy, the mood lighting is on point and the tapas are to die for. Add this to the top of your list immediately.

Restaurant Mason

You’ve probably walked past this place a million times but never really taken the opportunity to check it out. Now you have your bae by your side and you feel like you have an excuse to indulge in some fine dining. No spoilers, but this will be a dining experience like no other.

The Koutetsu

Not so keen on dinner? How about drinks? If you’re looking for a premiere cocktail and bar experience, look no further than The Koutetsu. We won’t give the exact location away but we will tell you it’s on Hunter Street. It’s a speakeasy after all (oh and you don’t need to text to get in). It will be a drinking experience to remember though, that we can reveal.


After something a little more traditional? Are you someone who loves to engage with the chef behind the magic? Paymasters might just be your new favourite place. With a very extensive menu, they are sure to have something for everyone. They are particularly famous for their seafood oh and the view of the harbour. Book and ask for a table by the balcony.
