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!

Tapas Revolution Bar – Newcastle

I’ve heard so many good things about Tapas Revolution, so when I was invited along to the launch of their new bar I was super excited!

Friday 8th December saw the opening of the new lounge on Blackett Street, which is inspired by the lively bars of Spain, and it was like Christmas came early! It features an extensive new Sangria menu, which is full of innovative and exciting fruity combos.

THE ALCHEMIST – NEWCASTLE

I’ve heard a lot about The Alchemist, mostly from friends in Manchester and Leeds, so was thrilled when I first heard that they’d be opening one in Newcastle! Taking up residence in the swanky new Grey’s Quarter of Intu Eldon Square, the bar has certainly had a lot of buzz leading up to it’s opening.

I was lucky enough to be invited along to the media launch on Tuesday (21st March) with my work colleagues to witness the magic first hand, and boy was it exciting!

The Alchemist bills itself as a ‘celebration of the unconventional, dark and controversial’, which is certainly represented first and foremost by it’s interior. Dim lighting, gothic artwork, dark wood and warm copper tones, the bar is incredibly magical and captivating. Before drinks are even added into the equation, the place is already an Instagrammers dream!
