Jesmond ·Newcastle upon Tyne
Often named the “student capital” of the North East, Jesmond is famed for its high-end bars and cool vibes. Located just a mile out of the centre of town, the student-populated area boasts a string of open-air terraces and Al Fresco drinking establishments, making it the perfect place to begin your night out. Most of Jesmond’s oh-so-stylish bars, including Jam Jar, Spy Bar and Sohe are set in one cluster along Osbourne Road – which is particularly accessible for students living close by. Made up of three bars, set up over two next-door venues, Osbourne’s is a solid favourite – boasting extensive cocktail and food menus. If glitzy bars aren’t your scene, or you’re looking for something more chilled, you can take a five minute walk out of the area and head down to Sandyford – a prevalent suburb of Jesmond. Here, you can find bars and pubs such as ‘As You Like It’, ‘The Holy Hobo’ and ‘The Blue Bell’ – where shabby chic décor and decent music dominates the ambiance.
