Newcastle upon Tyne, more commonly known as Newcastle, is known for its mix of traditional Victorian style and contemporary urban flair. It is also well-known throughout the UK for its thriving nightlife scene! With several universities and a population that includes more than 40,000 students, Newcastle is a hip city with young energy. This is the place for a night in the town: start off with a few cocktails or pints at a cozy pub, have dinner at one of the city’s many eateries, and end your night in the wee hours of the morning at a nightclub throbbing with beats spun by a popular DJ! A convenient way to experience nightlife without going to a crowded bar or club is to stay in a party hotel. These accommodations often have bars or clubs right on the premises, or arrange outings and bar crawls to experience the scene. If you’re ready to get your dance and drink, read on for our picks of the best party hotels in Newcastle.

There is no better way to make friends while traveling than staying in a hostel, except for perhaps meeting folks while out on the town! At the Clifton Hotel and Backpackers, you can do both. This backpackers hotel features dorm-style rooms and common areas designed for meeting new travel companions. You can make friends in shared spaces like the sun terrace, kitchen, or games room, and also at social events the hotel organizes. Grab a drink and mingle at the hostel’s happy hour, enjoy on-site evening entertainment, or tag along on a pub crawl through downtown Newcastle, which is within walking distance!
Address: 76 Grainger Park Road
Another great hostel option is Manhattans, which has both dormitory rooms or private double rooms with an en-suite bathroom. This spot is located a short distance outside of Newcastle, but it is within walking distance of the metro stop that will take you downtown in just minutes! You’ll feel like you’re in the heart of the city when you go to the on-site nightclub or bar, which has seats at the bar if you’re looking to mingle, and cozy booths if you desire something more intimate.
A party city with plenty to do
Though you might travel to Newcastle to party, the city offers many other things to do before the sun goes down. It is a cultural center for art and design, which you can explore yourself at The Biscuit Factory, the UK’s largest independent art, craft, and design gallery, or the BALTIC Center for Contemporary Art. History buffs will love the Beamish Museum, a living museum where you can see what life was like throughout British history, or the Segenudum, which goes all the way back to life in Roman times. Whether you’re in town to party or looking for something more well-rounded, there are endless opportunities for fun and learning in Newcastle!
