Revolution Durham Event!

It doesn’t seem to matter which city I go to, I nearly always find myself in Revolution. Delicious food, bloody lovely cocktails and always a great atmosphere- you can never go wrong!

That’s why I was so excited when I was invited along to a blogger event at the opening of their new bar in Durham. Based in the heart of the city on North Road, the bar is spread out over two floors. Downstairs you have the ground floor restaurant with comfy booths, a large bar and a dance floor to keep you going til the early hours of the morning. If you head upstairs, you’ll find their amazing heated rooftop terrace which overlooks Durham Castle, Cathedral and the river. It’s beautiful!

The Rabbit Hole – Durham

A new hidden gem has opened its doors in Durham, and it’s nothing like anywhere you’ve been before.

Located on Hallgarth Street, The Rabbit Hole may look like a ramshackle antique shop but once you make your way through its speakeasy style side door, just off Mavin Street, you’re transported back to a bygone era of decadence and indulgence.

Cooking Up A (Pizza)Storm!

PizzaStorm is one of my favourite spots to visit in Newcastle for scran. Residing in Intu Eldon Square, the restaurant is super affordable (and fast!) with pizza’s starting from £6.55! You can choose one of their signature pizza’s from the menu, like Loaded Cheese Feast or Smokey BBQ Chicken, or you can create your own.

If there’s one thing that I’m not necessarily confident about when it comes to my blogging, it’s my photography.

At the moment I use my iPhone as a camera at events, and I always worry that my photos might not be good enough to post. Luckily I was invited along to the Viking Photography Masterclass at The Botanist, Newcastle, and was able to pick up some handy tips in order to improve my skills!

A Stay at Hotel Indigo, Durham

Set in the former university offices at Old Shire Hall, Hotel Indigo Durham has recently opened following a £15 million transformation. I was lucky enough to be invited along to check out the hotel, and was overwhelmed by just how wonderful it is!

The stunning red brick building is ideally situated on Old Elvet, which makes it the perfect base to explore the city centre. It is also the home to Tinderbox Espresso Bar, Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill and the Rotunda Bar – which I’ll get onto later.
