It’s that time of year again and Valentine’s Day is nearly here, so why not take your partner somewhere special? Or take your mates on some fun dates? Or maybe you just don’t want to be stuck in watching The Notebook for the millionth time?
Whether you’re coupled up or happily single, we’ve curated a list of six romantic, fun, and outside-the-box date ideas to help you say, ‘I love you, pet’ this Valentine’s Day in Newcastle.
If you and your partner are stuck for ideas this Valentine’s Day, then we’ve got your back. Take a look at our proper lush couple-friendly date ideas in Newcastle.
For a high-end, opulent dining experience, head to Leila Lily’s this Valentine’s Day. This award-winning Grey Street restaurant is nestled right in the heart of the city centre and is one of Newcastle’s most Instagrammable destinations, with garlands, greenery, and florals galore.
There’s something for everyone on the menu; from mouth-watering beef straight from their Mibrasa BBQ Grill to a Korean Chicken Burger with Wasabi mayonnaise. We’ve heard the Hot Chocolate Fondant is really something special, too, so make sure you book your table ahead of time to not miss out.
What’s better than getting comfy with your date, some snacks, and settling down for a good film? Oh yeah, doing it with beer and burgers on tap.
One for the movie lovers, Ouseburn Garden’s outdoor cinema returns this Valentine’s Day for a screening of Tony Scott’s cult classic, True Romance. Cuddle up around the cosy fire pits and tuck into scran from Brack Burger, and enjoy beer, spirits, or soft drinks from the bar.
Ouseburn Garden recommends arriving at 6:30 pm on the 14th February to make sure you bag a good seat before everyone else does.
Galentine’s Day is officially celebrated on 13th February and despite the name, it’s not just for the girls. Here are some ideas for a great Galentine’s with your nearest and dearest, whether you’re looking for the best cocktails in the ‘toon or just a canny good night out.
Mother Mercy is one of the newest additions at Fenwick’s Department Store and has already caused quite a stir (wink wink).
Winner of The Chronicle’s Newcastle’s Best Bar 2022, Mother Mercy’s cocktail menu features classics with a twist, as well as some unique Mother Mercy Favourites. Their Hot Honey Margarita definitely looks to be the perfect addition to any Galentine’s outing, and we cannot recommend them enough.
We’ll tell you what we want (what we really, really want) this February, and that’s drinks, dancing, and good times at Howlers!
On the 11th of February, Howlers will be hosting The Brunch Club’s Spice Girls Drag Bottomless Brunch, where you can expect a delicious menu alongside your tipple of choice. Arrive from 11:30 am to enjoy three hours of feel-good tunes, oh, and fancy dress is encouraged. Why not channel your inner Baby or Ginger and spice up your life this Galentine’s?
2023 is the year of self-love, and in Newcastle, you don’t need a significant other to have a belter night. Here’s our picks for those of you flying solo this Valentine’s Day.
There’s nothing like Bob Ross to get you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. If your idea of a perfect night includes happy little trees and wispy little clouds, you’ve come to the right place.
On the 14th of February at 7 pm, Tyne Bank Brewery welcomes you to paint along with the legend himself, with drinks and Valentine’s treats available from the bar, and singles are more than welcome.
We can’t think of a more paw-fect way to spend the day than mingling with adorable pups and their owners, can you?
Treat your pooch to unlimited puppuccinos and enjoy some seriously cute Valentine’s photo opportunities at 10 am, on 12th February at Revolution Newcastle, where Pup Up Café will be hosting their hugely popular Puppy Valentine’s Day Party.
Sing along everyone — aaaand they called it puppy love…
