The Bar which is at the start of grey street is named…Well No.1 Grey Street aka The Vineyard. This is billed as a winebar, but its not really the type of thing you might expect.
It is more of a latin wine/cocktail kind of place. They serve beer but only bottles of Duvel, which if you dont know is really really strong lager. It is very nice too, but have too many and you wont see much in front of your face. The place itself is small, in fact tiny in comparison to other places. It probably one of the smallest bars in Newcastle, but that makes it great. Other things on the drinks menu is many cocktails aswell as the usual long drinks, and vodka redbull of course. Drinks prices are moderate verging on expensive; A Duvel costs around £3.50 and Single Vodka Redbull is around £6; Which isnt too bad for that area just off the Diamond Strip.
It is usually full on the weekend, and the type of crowd it attracts are older people, 20s – 40s which is better than it sounds, as 99% of the time you dont get random charva kids who look 15 years old.
The best thing about this place is it has character and individuality. It plays great music, a huge mix of Latin with US and UK urban flavors; So you can expect to hear Daddy Yankee, Gypsey Kings aswell as Kevin Lyttle and others to name a few. Staff are always friendly, crowd is friendly.
I think this is definatly one of the best bars in Newcastle and consistantly is, simply because it offers something different to all the other bars in the area which offer very similar things. Great music (if you’re into it-i am), nice drinks, nice size place, fast/friendly service…I cant think of much bad to say about the place; Maybe a few more señoritas 😀
Footballers Kieran Dyer, Nobby Solano and Oba Martins are known to have had a beverage in this place
