Where To Celebrate Your Graduation in NE1 This Summer
Seven super places to celebrate you success this summer!
HOTEL DU VIN
Add a touch of French flair to your celebrations at Hotel du Vin - perfect for those wanting a more laid-back, intimate affair. Head for the serene bistro and kick-back with your loved ones, sampling delights from the restaurant’s unrivalled wine selection, raising a glass to your achievements and digging in to the a la carte menu, inspired by classic French cuisine and modern British cooking.
THE VERMONT HOTEL
Elegant food, classy cocktails and VIP treats! Take advantage of the special Graduation Celebration offer and enjoy three courses in The Bridge restaurant, washed down with a glass of prosecco for £19.95 per person. Fancy something sweeter? Settle in for a spot of Graduation Champagne Afternoon Tea, indulging in finger sandwiches and freshly-baked scones, mini cakes and pastry delights, served with your choice of tea (or coffee) and a glass of Veuve Clicquot Champagne. Graduates tucking into Traditional Afternoon Tea will be treated to a free glass of prosecco. Offers end Friday 20 July.
Wine, dine and party like 1920s sirs and sirens at Colonel Porter’s. A tavern, rhum bar and botanical garden all rolled into one, the vibrant venue is an ideal spot for celebratory shindigs with a touch of old-school edge. Fancy food? Take a seat in the restaurant and take your pick of the kitchen’s small sharing plates, before grabbing a seat at the bar, filled with over 100 rums and premier spirits. You can also hire out Archie’s Lab - a private snug that can hold up to 80 guests - if you fancy making your night more exclusive.
Perfectly-positioned between Newcastle’s shopping district and the Quayside, Babucho is one of the city’s most popular venues for special occasions. Take a seat in the trendy New York-style brasserie and enjoy an Italian feast, courtesy of the a la carte menu, or go all out with one of the restaurant’s special party menus - perfect for groups. Skilled bartenders and mixologists show off their stuff ’til the early hours to a modern soundtrack of RnB and funk. The place to be if you’re in the mood for a late one!
Celebrate your way at The Botanist, whether you’re in the mood for a late night, packed with bubbles, cocktails and music, or a chilled-out evening, filled with family and good food. Fancy something a little more private? Hire out the Mezzanine or the venue’s Granny Smith’s Room; two exclusive dining spaces, tucked away from the main bar and restaurant, designed for 14 to 50 guests. For a livelier night, stay put in the bar and explore the venue’s renowned cocktail menu. Great for crowds, old and young!
