The Vineyard


At the starting point of Newcastle’s iconic Grey Street, The Vineyard stands as a beacon of artistic flavour and intoxicating concoctions. In the heart of the city, this premier wine and cocktail bar has been elevating the spirits of Northeast England since 1993, serving up a delightful blend of class and creativity to its customers.

The Vineyard’s wine selection is as extensive as it is diverse, reflecting the venue’s roots as a dedicated wine bar. But the offerings don’t stop at wines. The Vineyard is also home to a wide variety of bottled beers and ciders, with the Belgian Beer Duvel taking the spotlight. This award-winning pale ale has been part of the bar’s selection for years, and it’s no wonder: with its golden hue and crisp, refreshing taste, it’s a must-try for anyone who walks through the door.

The bar’s pièce de résistance, however, lies in its signature cocktails. Far from your run-of-the-mill Margarita or Cosmopolitan, these concoctions are crafted with specialty ingredients, creating a range of flavours from fresh and fruity to sour and sweet. Prepared by an in-house development team, these unique libations have earned The Vineyard a reputation as one of the best spots for cocktails in the city.

At The Vineyard, guests can enjoy an afternoon or evening drink while admiring the eclectic décor, from the cool wall art to the stylish serving bar. The atmosphere is perfect for a midweek drink, with a relaxed vibe that gives way to a more upbeat energy on weekends. With a soundtrack featuring old school R&B, European pop, salsa, and Latino music, visitors can let loose and dance the night away.

The Vineyard’s late license allows the party to continue past regular closing times, depending on customer numbers and demand. For those seeking a more private experience, a cosy, closed-off seating area is available for reservation, accommodating up to 20 people. It’s also possible to hire out the entire bar (subject to availability).

So next time you meander down the picturesque Grey Street, be sure to stop by The Vineyard for a glass or two.
