Newcastle Nightlife, Australia

Newcastle Nightlife scenario is wild, yet relaxed. The place has large numbers of bars as well as clubs and the excitement-factor is not-a-jot-less like that in big cities like Canberra or Sydney. Even the area hotels have two/three bars each and have separate dance-floors. So, if you want to shake your leg all night, New Castle has ample avenues for you to enjoy.

Speaking of Newcastle Nightlife, we must specially mention the music-scene. You will get to hear everything – disco, jazz, hip-hop, rock, blues, techno, trance, et al at the nightclubs and other live-music venues. Newcastle band music is something worth lending your ears to, especially since a number of local bands like Cold Chisel, Silverchair, The Screaming Jets and some other bands have made their presence felt at the national level. So, if you are in love with music, New Castle surely won’t disappoint you.

Newcastle Nightlife – Clubs

As said, the Newcastle area presents to you enough clubbing opportunities. Some are pure nightclubs with lounges and dance-floors, but there are a few sports-clubs as well with pool-tables, gaming-rooms and other similar facilities along with bars/lounges.

Some of Newcastle’s famous clubs are Fanny's Night Club, MJ Finnegans,

Panthers Club Nova, Pheonix Sports Club, Surf City, The Cambridge, The Delany, The Great Northern, The Mercury and Star Newcastle. Most of the Newcastle clubs offer you a lot to eat and drink – cocktails, mocktails and a wide variety of cuisines. The entertainment venues mostly operate till late hours and some like Panthers Club Nova have 24-hour operations. But then, the best thing about the Newcastle clubs is that most of these are working-class clubs so they allow you to be your casual self – you need to do no specific attire to visit any of these clubs.

Newcastle Nightlife – Pubs and Eateries

Newcastle nightlife has much to offer to those who are averse to clubbing. If you are such then go to areas like Newcastle's East End or the harbor-side; you will come across a number of outdoor dining-cum-drinking facilities like The Brewery, Customs House and Scratchleys (on the Wharf). Besides, the Beaumont Street and the Darby Street also have a huge number of licensed cafes, pubs and restaurants.

So, Newcastle nightlife means something for everyone – for different age-groups and inclinations. The enthusiastic Novocastrians (the Newcastle locals are called thus), who horde the entertainment venues, particularly on weekends will only add to the pleasures of your night out. You really do not need to bother if you have company or not – go foot tapping with your buddies/date to the music whipped up by the DJ at a club or just have a blast of a time with the locals at a pub.
