Newcastle continually ranks high on lists of the best nights out in the UK, and it's clear to see why. The Geordies love a pint and are great fun on a night out, plus, the options to choose from in the city are absolutely stacked. Whether you’ve got a stag or a hen, a birthday to celebrate, or just want to get messy on a Friday night, Newcastle always delivers the goods. 

And despite being relatively small in comparison to big cities like Manchester, Birmingham, and London, some of the best clubs are in Newcastle. And they’re super diverse too, meaning there's a good club no matter what occasion. So let's just dive straight in. Here are the best nightclubs in Newcastle you should check out this weekend. And every weekend after…

We’re kicking off the list with a monster of a venue, The Lofts in Newcastle. With a capacity of around 1,500, The Lofts is the biggest nightclub in Newcastle, possibly the biggest in the North East. Despite only opening late last year, the superclub has already seen some fantastic, high-demand DJs such as Eats Everything, Horse Meat Disco, and The Shapeshifters behind the decks. As a superclub, you can expect crazy light shows, a sound system that rattles your skull, and a bunch of different rooms and genres.

Digital is easily one of the best clubs in Newcastle and even came in 11th place in DJ Mag’s Best Clubs in the World list. If that doesn’t impress you, perhaps their Kandi Island nights will. Kandi Island nights go down on Mondays, with tickets starting for as little as £1. On these nights, you can expect the usual: good tunes and good vibes, but what you might not have expected is the cakes, sweets, and doughnuts they give away. Yeah, really! There are also space-themed Saturday parties with drink deals. Yep, drink deals on a Saturday. Heaven.

Two words: Ball. Pit. Yep, Howlers is home to one of the biggest ball pits in the UK and the only one for adults in Newcastle. Think about it. You, bladdered, having the time of your life, and then you dive into a massive ball pit with your mates. Is it possible to not have the time of your life? Anyway, enough about the ball pit (for now). Howlers also have a three-course bottomless brunch with live music, pizza, comedians, karaoke, and Boujee Bingo. And a ball pit, just to remind you. 




Bijoux Newcastle

Upcoming events: Fridays at Club Bijoux, Saturdays at Club Bijoux 

You might recognise Bijoux from Geordie Shore. That should already tell you a fair amount about the vibe at this Newcastle club. Bijoux is one of Newcastle’s busiest venues from when the sun sets on Friday to when the sun rises on Monday. Local DJs hit the decks all weekend, and partiers from far and wide travel to the chaotic venue to forget their troubles by kicking off the weekend properly - by taking half a dozen shots and hitting the dancefloor hard.  



Newcastle is a cracking city to dance and drink in until the birds start to sing. There’s so much on, some top DJ sets, wild clubs, one’s that attract celebs, and one’s that care about nothing except letting loose and having a laugh. They’re all brill in their own ways. Now good luck choosing which on our list of the best nightclubs in Newcastle to check out first!
