The number of Brits drinking wine is decreasing, and the number of great cocktail spots is growing.
Geordies are known for their welcoming attitude, love of a big night out and the penchant for a drink or three.
However, with fewer young people drinking, bars and clubs in Newcastle now serve more cocktails and non-alcoholic cocktails than ever before.
According to Alcohol Change, alcohol consumption declined by 16% between 2004 and 2017, with younger generations skipping alcoholic beverages for the economy.
With so many delicious non-alcoholic options, people who are alert or simply want a clear mind in the morning can still partake in a night of drinking at Tyneside.
