A favourite for many years Popolo had a lively atmosphere and some wonderful drinks. It's gone in these hard times - a great shame as it was one of Newcastle's finest bars. Good service, lovely drinks and fond memories.

Visiting Newcastle from Canada for a few days we took the weight off our weary feet a breezey Dec in between Xmas & NY around 3pm for an hours break away from sales shopping. We loved the atmosphere , diverse range of spirits available , had an almost perfect dirty vodka martini and was impressed by the staff and the cool ' 50s / prohibition feel/ branding 'it wasn't a busy day . Went back next night when it was busier and loved it ( and the amazing cocktails) even more !!!! It's on our best uk bar experience list for sure !!

Brilliant place to visit for an early dinner. The food is fantastic and the drinks are better! Wide selection of different cocktails, beers etc. Staff are very friendly and helpful. One of the few places in Newcastle where they know exactly what the cocktails are.

Would recommend going for an early meal, 7.30 latest on a Friday/Saturday as it all turns into a bar.

We went as a couple and had a great experience here at Popolo's for Newcastle restaurant week. It is stylish, relaxed and the service was excellent. Our food was delicious and very filling (fresh calamari, rich chicken livers, steak, pancetta-wrapped chicken, hand-cut chips). It arrived in good time but we didn't feel rushed. Also had a delicious cocktail!!
I would recommend for a date or drink with friends.
