Newcastle night spot gets new lease of life

An iconic Newcastle night spot is set to re-open next month after getting a new lease of life.

The former Julie’s night club on the Quayside is set to open in August, as Tiger Hornsby.

Working on behalf of the building’s owner, Enigma Interactive, chartered surveyors Sanderson Weatherall has negotiated the lease of the Quayside building, which housed it to entrepreneur Rachael Frame.

“Tiger Hornsby will be a completely fresh take on the cocktail bar experience,” said Rachael.

“It is taking the greatest cocktails back to basics, all made with the finest ingredients, fantastic service, in a completely friendly and un-pretentious atmosphere.”

Tiger Hornsby is so named after the 1960-70s socialite who herself was reputed to be a regular visitor of Julie’s.

The property, in Quayside Studios, offers 2,088 sq ft of trading space, including a mezzanine area, and came free of brewery ties and with premises licences in place.

Kevin McGorie, Associate Partner at Sanderson Weatherall, said: “Julie’s was iconic to an entire generation who enjoyed Newcastle’s nightlife, including celebrities who visited or plied their trade in and around the city.

“It is great to see Rachael bringing it back to life as Tiger Hornsby. It’s in such a great location and has recently refurbished, so it is ideal to house a successful new nightspot.”
