for the centre of Newcastle, this bar is no different from any of the other large corperate bars based in town. They do a good 2-1 cocktail deal but it is only at certain times. Location is ideally located at monument in the centre of Newcastle so can make a good meeting point. Other than that, I wouldn't tend to opt for this bar I much prefer something with a cosier atmosphere personally.

Although a whole part of town was designed and built in the same style, it seems that only Grey street has escaped the ravages caused by the buildings being converted into shops and thereby destroying the ground floor. Really worth a stroll through.

I work on Grey Street and I'm often blown away by how beutiful it is.

If you are visiting call into the Theatre Royal at number 100 even if you don't see a show it's worth just calling in to see the beautiful foyer.

There are not many COMPLETE streets of Edwardian architecture, certainly not outside of London. Today, it remains unspoilt and is still a thriving centre for shops, offices and restaurants.

Build by Richard Grainger, aided by architects such as John Dobson, Grey Street is described by Nikolaus Pevsner as 'one of the finest streets in England'.

Pevsner was not alone in his admiration for 'Tynside Classical'. Sir John Betjeman said 'As for the curve of Grey Street, I shall never forget seeing it to perfection, traffic-less on a misty Sunday morning. Not even Regent Street, even old Regent Street London, can compare with that descending subtle curve'.

Forget the stotties, the bridges, the river, the football and the geordie accent. THIS is what Newcastle upon Tyne is to me.

There are several decent coffee houses and eateries on Grey Street - grab a seat by the window and soak it in. Who needs London, eh?
