OUT AND ABOUT: If you haven’t checked out these places where have you been hiding?

We all know that Newcastle is always shaping and changing.

With the way things are going at the moment, it’s pretty hard to keep up with the happenings of the town

But if you want to keep up with the Jones’s, see and be seen, and get your finger on the pulse, here are some great Newy haunts that you should be adding to your ‘to-do list’.

Bao Brothers

701 Hunter Street, Newcastle

A Newcastle favourite has just gone through an extensive shakeup process to become one of the hottest nightspots in town.

Hip, fresh, and hipster staff with an edge, this place is your next must do, and must see. Eat here, next. 

Wil & Sons

102 Darby Street, Cooks Hill

This hip hop and happening joint has changed many a hand in recent years, but with Wil and Sons packing out, week in and week out, it looks like the current outfit is here to stay.

Head here for amazing food, a great wine list, and Instagram-friendly decor.

Lounge, sip, and while the hours away, it’s pretty darn hip. 

Skeeta’s On Darby

107 Darby Street, Cooks Hill

Speaking of new and fresh, this brand new bar on Newcastle’s favourite street is about as hip and happening as you can get.

The decor is fresh AF, with a tradition steeped in history. Stop in for live music, a killer wine list, tapas, snacks, and great service. #winning

Good Brother 

40 King Street, Newcastle

Yes yes, I’m sure you already know about Good Brother but did you also know they’re now open nights?

Casual dining and good vibes, with a fresh summer menu to boot. Wine time after a day at the beach? Um duh. 

Blue Kahunas

3/146 Hunter Street Mall, Newcastle

Tiki bar says what?

Is there a better way to celebrate summer than to take your butt to paradise, park yourself on a stool, and sing Jimmy Buffet style all the way into the night?

Ok, I’m not so sure about the whole Jimmy Buffet thing but you will find some cracking cocktails, summer vibes, and good service.

See you there friends.
