I tried to go to Gotham Town this Friday night. A friend of mine wasn’t allowed in as the bouncer judged that they had had too much to drink. I tried to convince the bouncer that they were okay to come in. This conversation was dismissive and aggressive and the bouncer’s reaction to my questioning was eventually to push me... More

Well worth a visit but bare in mind its very busy and full of young people who are often quite drunk. The drinks are reasonable and the service was fast and friendly. Enjoyed a drink and a sing a long to some alternative rock classics.

Gotham Town is an alternative bar located opposite the train station in the centre of Newcastle. It is billed as a 'trebles' bar and is for those who like an alternative to the general bars in and around Newcastle. Located at the bottom end of the City on Neville Street, the pub is within walking distance from the bus station... More

Been coming here for a few years now and last night was the finish! Toilets are an absolute mess, staff lacking any motivation with some just standing around doing nothing when they should be serving people (bar not busy either) and then can't understand why you get p****d off. Bit of a shame really as it is in a good... More

We popped in for a drink lunch time, place was horrible and run down. When looking at the menu the waitress was playing with her hair, we throught this was not the most hygienic and asked her to stop as she was about to be pouring our drinks, she then told us that she had just finished cleaning the loos...

Amazing selection of tunes! But hit and miss with my friends (and girlfriend) but I liked it, worth a visit! As its close to Newcastle Central and prices are fair.

I came in here with a drink bar maid was rude speaking a different language while we were being served. Also went to the toilet unfortunately and it was grim... The place is a bit of a dive maybe ok on a night out when you are drunk although other than that it is pretty much a dive.

If you're coming here for superb quality drinks and an outstanding decor with pretty boy/girl types you're in the wrong place. Gotham is filthy, dirty, cheap and it absolutely stinks. But it's absolutely outstanding. Music is great, atmosphere is tremendous. What more could you want from a bar before you go to a club/gig/football match? I don't recommend spending over... More
