The Best Cocktail Bar Newcastle

Set in the stunning 1920’s themed bar and restaurant located at 145 King St, Newcastle, Bartholomew’s is one of Newcastle’s best known cocktail bars. Having won local acclaim for the best cocktail creations in Newcastle, the cocktail menu has been crafted by our master mixologist Mr Ryan Duck, with a huge selection of both classic and specialty cocktails available.

From our much-celebrated cocktail list, try one of outlandish creations like the white rum-based Fairy Dust Daiquiri, The Dark Temptress made with Woodford rye, or the loaded to the brim Caramel Bliss Bomb. There is something for every taste.

What makes Bartholomew’s the most popular cocktail bar?

Housed in the historic old Methodist Mission building, and with the largest range of whisky and craft spirits in Newcastle, Bartholomew’s is a natural fit for a good cocktail.

The stunning bar wows patrons upon entry, and the knowledgeable and friendly staff are highly trained in the art of fine cocktail creation, and presentation.

Newcastle is a Cocktail Bar Hotspot

Newcastle might be Sydney’s little brother, but when it comes to great cocktails, and master mixologists, Novocastrians can certainly stand tall. From originals like Bartholomew’s, The Blind Monk and The Koutetsu, to up and comers such as The Underground, and Blue Kahuna’s plus many more, you are spoilt for choice. 

Newcastle has become so well known for learning the cocktail making trade, that it’s now quite common to find Novocastrians shaking up a storm at some of the top bars in Sydney and Melbourne. 

WANT to learn the art of cocktail making?

Why not take a cocktail making class with us? Bartholomew’s can cater for groups large and small, teaching you what it takes to make your own creations.
