Welcome to the Newcastle Bar Index. Here you will find the league table of some of the best bars in Newcastle. Keep coming back, because like any table, things change! ;) Bars are awarded points based on criteria, which includes Cost, Value, Crowd, Drinks, Style And Staff, with a 20 points maximum in each category for a grand total of 100 points. The points are awarded by myself, friends and readers of this blog, and are genuine thoughts about the establishments. Who will be top this week? ;)

First of all I MUST stress the positions are just for fun, and based on bars we have recently been going in or hearing about. Think of the Newcastle Bar Index as a stock market, everything can change, positions go up and down as the weeks go on, maybe a bar had an amazing night, maybe they had unbeatable offers, the service was above and beyond or the bar in general was fun. These are all taken into account within the rankings. It’s just for fun, but you can read up some useful information on the bars if you click their name, including reviews.

The Newcastle Bar Index is completely sortable; This means if you click a header it will sort by that; e.g. click “area” and it will sort all the bars into areas alphabetically. Wanna cheap night out? Click “Cost” and it will sort in order of cheapest. Pretty cool huh? :mrgreen:
