Newcastle has a thriving Gay scene with several bars and night clubs within a short distance of each other. The Gay Village or Pink Triangle as it is sometimes known is situated between the Central Station and the Metro Radio Arena.
The area is well served by public transport with the Metro Station and Central Station close by.
The Centre for Life, Times Square and The Metro Radio Arena are all popular attractions that attract visitors, therefore the area can get fairly busy during the day.
The area comes alive at night when most of the bars and clubs are very busy with a mixed crowd of gays and straights. There are several bars and night clubs to choose from, with the Powerhouse one of the only exclusive gay night clubs in the North East. During the October there is a German Bierfest and the festive period a Christmas market, Bier garden and Ice rink on Times Square, with a number of bars serving up the usual Christmas Fayre.
The Pink Triangle is expanding rapidly with new gay bars and clubs opening with the continuing re-development of the area. There are several bars and Digital night club in the Centre for Life complex on Times Square.
The Jury's Inn hotel and Holiday Inn Express are both popular hotels to stay in this up and coming area.
