Visited here several times; there's the rodeo bull which is unique, the dancing girls and the dentist chair. All of which are good fun if you take an open mind in the place. The drinks are not the cheapest in Newcastle but the atmosphere is good, the decor is good and the service is fairly quick. Would return, mainly a students/young persons venue.

Second time here in a year. Was in Newcastle with my bf for the weekend for his birthday and we headed here as part of our bar crawl. Laid back atmosphere, great drinks deals. What more do you want?

Yes it's a bit "sticky" but it's a funky bar with good music and it does the job. I was dressed up and had a great time! We didn't spend the whole night here but it was a laugh. It's hilarious to sit and watch the more drunk revellers!

From the min I walked in I was disappointed from the the fact my feet stuck to the floor every time I moved the DJ favourite word was F%%# his thing was to grab football fans out the crowd slag there girls off then ask them to drink 3 pints of well I can only guess.
All the time this was going on there were also girls a temping to take bits of there underwear off .
If this is the great City of Newcastle I won't be returning ...

Well where do I begin we were out for a friends birthday when they insisted on visiting this place! As we entered we were greeted by the stench of urine and horrific decor the flooring being made of the stuff you find in say a very low end sports facility toilets! What customers were there weren't exactly the sort you'd want to be associated with! The bar staff obviously have no self respect judging by the lack if clothing and the "raunchy" if you can call it that dancing they were doing for men old enough to be their fathers was beyond distasteful! I decided not to purchase a drink nor did my partner or a few friends as I doubt very much that cleanliness was a priority judging by the state of the ladies toilets. The toilets were dropping to bits doors did not lock the mess was appalling and there was nothing to wash your hands with or dry! Also the girls selling drink harassing you was not enjoyable at all! All in all if you have anything about you, you will avoid this place like the plague!

Rodeo not in operation, staff unhelpful or ill-trained. Sticky place, women pestering you to buy shooters from them, being very insisting.
