Love this place so much! It is definitely my favourite venue in Newcastle, if you love good drinks / cocktails, great atmosphere, and good music you will love it!

I've been coming to Coal and Cedar for years - simply put, it is the best of the best, and better yet, it keeps getting better and better. The drink choice is endless, I love the ambiance, the service is outstanding. The place is almost always packed (which is hardly surprising). Would recommend to anyone in the area.

I have been waiting to go to this bar for over two years. The bar staff were superb. Their knowledge was awesome. It has an excellent selection of interesting whiskys and whiskeys. They have a funky cocktail selection, eclectic beer choices and a smattering of wine to choose from.

The place is decked out like an old speakeasy. The staff are dressed in leather jerkins and the trick to actually enter the building is one you should find out for yourself.

The experience was memorable, not only for the funky attitude but the knowledgeable staff and the exotic selections warm this old whisky drinker’s jaded heart.

Check it out.

Walked past by chance one day and noticed a board advertising cheese toasties and coffee deal.

From the Whiskey Espresso cafe out of a window at the front of the bar.

This is still the best ham and cheese toastie I have ever had. Coffee was amazing too.
