About
Welcome to the roaring 20's! Home of cool jazz and cabaret. A world of slick style and hard liquor!

Built specifically to provide a stage for variety, cabaret, music hall and vaudeville acts from the region and beyond for audiences far and wide. Not to mention our fully equipped private hire facilities. Prohibition was moved from the original railway arch premises - lock, stock and two oak-smoked barrels, to the former Jazz Cafe premises of Newcastle's famous Pink Lane in January 2019.

Amazing Venue for Private Hire
Aug 2021 • Friends
We booked Prohibition for a private birthday party upstairs and honestly could not recommend enough. From start to finish everyone was so helpful and accommodating. The venue itself is just absolutely beautiful, the space was perfect in every way. Communication from Doug in the run up to the event was spot on. Value for money was incredible. The staff are honestly an absolute credit to this place, especially Alex & Daniel who were on the bar for us upstairs - absolutely lush people and so kind & helpful. Thank you so much ❤️

Poor drinks
Jun 2021 • Couples
My husband and I visited here 11th June 21 at about 6:30pm. It was very quiet (I think only 1 other table occupied) and there was no atmosphere!! We ordered what seemed like a good offer on cocktails (2 for £8) but they just tasted like apple juice, no hint of alcohol whatsoever (very disappointed). Overall not a good experience.

Hands down the best bar in Newcastle. It is a real haven in the middle of a busy city. Such a relaxed atmosphere, fabulous setting and even more fabulous staff. Huge offering of entertainment.

Monthly burlesque shows
Sep 2020 • Friends
I attend the monthly burlesque shows which are always a brilliant night out, I often pop in for a couple of drinks at the start of a evening / dinner in town and I’m always served by brilliant staff and the bar has a lovely atmosphere. There is two levels so ideal for a private party upstairs. Decor is great and you do feel like you have traveled back in time.

It’s a proper gem of a bar, right in the city centre. Well worth a visit! X

Thanks for your lovely review Sarah, very kind and very helpful indeed. You'll be pleased to know the burlesque nights will be starting up again from July 2021 so we shall look forward to welcoming you back again then, if not sooner! Mitch 🥃

A special venue
Aug 2020
The best thing about this lovely venue is that no matter when you go the atmosphere is so relaxed. It's a personal service here, Mitch and the staff are so friendly and professional and go out of their way to please. We love the dog friendly Sundays or just popping in for a drink. It's a little haven in a lovely part of Newcastle. Love the place

Thank you for your lovely review! We love hearing how much people enjoy their visit here but it's especially lovely to know that our guests feel relaxed and welcomed when they're in our company. That's what Prohibition is all about, I always hoped it would be a safe, warm and laid back joint for everyone. So I'm glad we are! And yes, dogs are always welcome too! 🐾 Hope to see you again very soon ~ Mitch

A Beautiful Venue in Every Way
Aug 2020 • Friends
This 1920's themed bar has got to be the most warm and welcoming venue in town. It's beautifully decorated, the staff are fantastic and the cool and relaxed atmosphere is second to none. With dog friendly Sundays, Live Music, Burlesque and plenty other things going on to pique your interest you'd be a fool to miss this one out.

I can't wait to go back again, and again, and again. Try and stop me!

City Centre Neighbourhood Gem
Oct 2020 • Friends
Excellent, friendly, quirky place to stop in for a relaxing drink with very reasonable prices! Check out live music, themed or quiz nights for added value. There is a function room upstairs but the bar downstairs offers live music entertainment although not a huge seating area so be prepared to wait for a table which will be worth it!

What a smashing review! Thank you ever so much. Yes, we're still at a limited capacity (as at May 2021) following government guidance, but hope to return to our usual table numbers as soon as we feel it is safe to do so. We're very glad you think it's worth the wait though, it means we're doing things right, and over this last year our main priority has been to ensure all our customers are safe and comfortable while in our company. Our live entertainment program restarts in June and we can't wait to hear that familiar sound of music filling Pink Lane once again! Hope to see you again soon ~ Mitch

Think the unusual!
Mar 2021
This place is such an unusual place and a real gem in Newcastle. Nights out are great and there are loads of reviews here for that, but I popped in last for a cup of tea to meet a friend during the afternoon. The bar is quiet at this time with gorgeous vintage music, atmospheric settings and really friendly staff. The tea and cake was top and I had such a relaxing afternoon away from the usual coffee shops of the town. It's my go-to spot if I'm meeting up now and I couldn't recommend it enough. And they have an amazing function room upstairs!

Thank you ever so much for taking the time to leave us such a canny review. We're back open again (yay!) and look forward to welcoming you again on your next visit. While we won't be offering cake anymore (noooo!) we do still have a wonderful selection of teas, Pumphreys coffee and biscuits! Tunnocks Caramel Wafer anyone? ☺ See you soon! Mitch
