Newcastle and Gateshead Quayside

28th September, 2015 | Article By Lesley Tan

We were all very excited as we wanted to celebrate my school friend’s 60th at a great location on the Gateshead side of the River Tyne, so where better than at Six, a stunning rooftop restaurant offering British modern cuisine at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art.

We met and had a couple of drinks first at Pitcher & Piano on the Newcastle side of the river. The weather was warm and we were high as kites as this outing had been planned for many months!

The Quayside has been transformed from a typical working men’s quayside to ‘the Place to Be’ on a night out and Newcastle is now one of the best places to party in the UK. There are numerous pubs and clubs, restaurants and picturesque walks to attract most people and of course there are the bridges across the river. The Millennium Bridge is a sight to see – at night it is dazzling with the lights constantly changing and in the daytime it is one of the great attractions of the North East – along with the other bridges which span the Tyne, it has been photographed countless times.

The restaurant was super, good food and service and spectacular views looking out over the River Tyne.

What a great night out on the “TOON”!
