“MSA - Good time. Every time.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

Original, authentic and super-friendly. A place where you can safely bring your friends to and BET they'll have great time, you'll watch them enjoy cocktails made for them with panache, move to music they'll want on their playlists, and next day you'll discover great street artist's pieces in a backdrop of your every photo. With bags of personality and good taste from the moment you enter, it is, literally, an underground Mecca for those seeking Newcastle's entertainment delicacies.

“Great bar that looks unreal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

Been here a few times and it's one of my favorite bars in Newcastle. Fantastic range of draugh beers and plenty of cocktails for the misses. Great music, Smoove ( Smoove & Turrell ) DJs on a Friday. Oh must mention it's got the best artwork if any bar I've ever been too. Go visit yourself. Recommended

“Stylish, unique... Everything that Newcastle has been crying out for.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

I've been going out in Newcastle a long time. During that time, I've seen a whole load of pretty crap venues with shoddy cocktail menus and a... questionable clientele. Granted, there are some great places too, but there's always been something missing. A middle ground between the "let's just sit and have a quiet drink" and the "let's go to the club and get blotto". Luckily, this year we were graced with MSA and I must say, it's certainly a welcome addition.

Stellar cocktails, an unrivalled playlist from a selection of the City's finest DJs and just a nice place to have a drink, kick back with mates or get down on the dancefloor. Despite being in it's infancy, the bar is already going from strength to strength and I almost don't want to write this review so that other people don't catch on to our special little spot, but I will because I'm nice like that.

Get yourself there, you won't be disappointed.

“Great drinks menu and playlists. Truly original”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

A bar is mainly about two things, drinks and atmosphere.
The drinks are great and well priced, the cocktails are some of the best I have tasted. There are plenty to choose from and if you feel there might be too many then the helpful, knowledgeable and friendly staff will recommend you, Eddie's Mojito and the Martinis are a must.
This then brings us to the music, always varied and different a refreshing change from the commercial dross played in the bars on the 'diamond strip'.
Lastly what also makes this place a cut above is the contemporary art spread throughout the bar.
A local or visiting Newcastle then this place has to be on the list of go to places.
