Bottomless brunch

There’s nothing better than unlimited alcohol and some good brunch food to celebrate your hen party. No28,right in the heart of Newcastle, gives you a choice of either 90 mins or two hours (we know which one we’ll be picking) of free-flowing prosecco and tasty tapas, patatas bravas, bread and salad.

Or, The Hudson offers one of the most delicious platters, including beef sliders and salt and pepper squid – there are veggie options available too – all washed down with 90 minutes of unlimited fizz and the choice of a pitcher of cocktails.

Indoor shooting range

Are you ready for a fully loaded night out? From bespoke cocktails and frosty steins to bottomless wings and competitive leader boards, Point Blank Shooting is a state-of-the-art simulation shooting range that’s perfect for a hen do.

Tasting menus

Level up your dining experience with some fine-dining for your bride – you only get married once (well, that’s the plan). Check out Nest’s indulgent 8-course tasting menu, you won’t be disappointed, and you have the option of adding a wine flight, too.



Art workshops

This is the perfect choice if your bride is more on the artsy, creative side. Whether your bride squad are beginners or experts at pottery making, The Pottery Experience gives you a chance to make and paint pottery, meaning you’ll have a keepsake to take home from the hen party, too.

Or, if you think your bride might prefer creative craft workshops such as quilt making, unicorn headdresses and flower crowns, check out Crafts & Giggles.




Planning is a wedding is stressful, so your bride might just want to take some time out to chill out for their hen party – and we don’t blame them. Why don’t you book your bride a Million Dollar Facial at Danu Studios, which we can guarantee will make her feel and look like a million dollars?
