Every time I have a weekend in Newcastle Flares is where we head to! I think this is a brilliant night out with a varied mix of ages - right across the board - literally!! The most refeshing thing about Flares, is that everyone just seems to want to enjoy themselves, I always liken it to that 'holiday feeling' Love... More

Group of x 5. We got "kicked out" of another local nightclub (long story!), so looked for somewhere else to go. Stumbled across this little gem of a place. We had a brilliant night out - the bouncers were friendly, the people in the club all seemed genuinely happy to be there, and for once we were dancing on a... More

If you are in a party mood then head to Flares Newcastle. This has to be be the best atmosphere in the city.. Entertaining DJ's with a selction of great parety tunes all night... Flares does not play current music and has also progressed from just the 1970's era.. But my party loved every minute and we stayed in the... More

I went here with a few friends (guys and girls) last weekend. It was really awful unless you're over 50! It was full of drunk, middle aged (and older!) men and women. We were all early 30s and felt very strange in this place. The music wasn't all that 70s/80s focused and it had a fairly unpleasant atmosphere. It took... More

I can't fault Flares at all... Reasonable cover charge, cheap drinks and great music. Lots of fun had by my whole party of 16.

Firstly it was so busy you could barley make it to the bar or even walk though the bar or even dance. Got us really frustrated the amount of times people walked into us! It was a good 20 minute wait at the bar! You had sobered up when him got served! There was also no air com as soon... More

Went back in on Saturday afternoon and the really nice woman cleaning up was delighted to return it... laughing at me she told me It had been found pride of place in the middle of the dance... More

I used to really enjoy going for a dance in Flares due to the genre of music played, the majority being 70's. However last night about 75% of the music was 90's. So if you are looking for a cheesy 90's bar this is the place to go.....yet don't expect much 70's or 80's on Saturday night.
