Stack Newcastle

Johnny James, Managing Editor
Stack

Stack was one of the most lively food, drink and entertainment spots in Newcastle when it existed as a pop up on Pilgrim Street. But due to noise complaints it was forced to close, before the site was unceremoniously turned into a *sigh* HMRC office complex. But one door closes and a new one opens. And this one’s permanent.

Opening in winter 2023, Stack Newcastle will be permanently located at the Grade II listed building, Worswick Chambers at Pilgrim Street (a stone’s throw from the original venue), which has been covered with scaffolding and netting for more than 20 years.

The new flagship venue will be split over three floors and include eight bars, seven street food units, two cocktail bars, which will also be utilised as function rooms, plus a roof terrace. It will also include a central outdoor plaza area, a big screen and a stage for live performances.

When complete the new Stack Newcastle will create 160 jobs and will bring back to the city a much-missed hotspot for food, drink, and live entertainment.
