Chase Bar Newcastle – No I Don’t Fucking want a shot!

chase-logo

Chase Bar is located down the quayside. It is quite a nice space, had a refurbishment not so long ago and has a nice outside area aswell as three bars (sometimes only the main bar is open) inside. It is split level, and also had a downstairs area to chill in.

They sell a range of beer and bottles, and is pretty friendly for letting in hen and stag parties, in fact if you go on a Saturday night and dont see at least one there must be something wrong.

The music on offer is pretty much the standard thing, chart, pop, rnb dance kind of stuff; It can get pretty full in this place and sometimes it can take a while to get served, although i have to say the staff are better than they used to be.

There are 2 things which i hate about this place. One is the person in charge of pricing the drinks. I went in and got a double vodka and energy drink (they’re cheap, no redbull here) and they will sell you one for £2.50 but you do not get the can. They will give you half the can, if you ask for the can, the bar person will tell you “oh its over £6 if you want the can aswell…” OK, its fair enough if you dont get the can, you cant complain here as its only £2.50, if it were £5> than you could complain……However, i could buy 2x of the drinks for £5.00, and they’d have to use 1 can for 2 drinks. So i can get 2 double vodkas and a can of redbull for £5, but if i want one double vodka with a full can of Redbull its over £6?!?! The Management at Chase need to get back to school i think!

Now i dont bother getting that drink here. They use the cheapest vodka on the planet along with whatever energy drink happens to be the cheapest.

The thing which is the worst of all is the shot girls. If you dont know what they are, some bars have girls which go round everyone in the bar asking if you wanna buy a shot. This is the most annoying thing in the world!!! You are out to have a good time, and someone is coming up to you trying to sell you something….Havent i already bought something from the bar? I cant tell you how much i HATE this on so many levels. I have chosen to come to your bar and you have someone bothering me to buy shots?

Not only that but the girls try their BEST to get you to buy them. That means there is not much they wouldnt do to sell you a shot. They will give you some free if you buy enough, and they will bug you and put pressure on you to buy one from them.

And if one girl isnt bugging you enough, her mate will come along and ask you the same thing! Bars listen up, ITS FUCKING ANNOYING! STOP IT!!!! I love shots, but if i want one, i will go to the bar and buy one.

The worst part about the whole ‘new look’ chase is the signage outside. What a joke! What were they thinking?! It looks so cheap its unreal. They must of done the inside of the bar and ran out of cash, basically black and yellow boards above the door, it looks terrible!
