This month we are taking cautious steps back to 'normality'. At Colonel Porters, situated at the bottom of Dean Street, they have dusted the chandeliers, shined the cocktail glasses and are ready to welcome customers back into their exquisite emporium.
Bold, bright and beautiful, Colonel Porters Emporium is a shining jewel in the crown of Newcastle’s bar and restaurant scene. Think The Great Gatsby with an eclectic twist. Fabulous cocktails, great ales and yummy food. A perfect setting for a party, wedding reception or a corporate do – there really isn’t anywhere else quite like it in the Newcastle. For many its a time to re-connect with their work colleagues after only seeing them on Zoom for the last year. Colonel Porters offers a great setting for team building/re connecting sessions, use the Union Bar or Archie Secret Disco to host your team, maybe try a cocktail masterclass and finish off with some live music (bespoke packages available). One doesn’t want to mention the C word (Christmas) but party slots are getting booked up already…there’s a lot of time to be made up! Archie’s Lab aka the Secret Disco is a perfect room to host a family party, wedding or indeed any kind of celebration or gathering. Hidden away behind a booked – filled wall up to 100 people can party privately. For those who like a bit of history- master brewing ran in Colonel Porter’s family, so following his time in military service, he teamed up with Chief Chemist Archie Jones, and took up the challenge of creating a brand new ale. Their complementary skills and three years of dedication and refining, hidden away and in secrecy in Archie’s Lab, resulted in the star of ales launching in 1927 – Newcastle Brown Ale (aka Dog, Journey into Space, Lunatic’s Broth).
