Located on Market St, dAt bAr Newcastle is an independent, exciting venture from the De Giorgi family who also operate it alongside our neighbour on Shakespeare Street, Nitehawks.

Drawing on stripped back urban influences and mixing them with simple design features and details, dAt bAr promises to be the most unique place to eat, drink, and be merry in Newcastle.

Mix this up with our love for craft beers, great wine, exquisite coffee, and simple, tasty food, there is truly nothing like the dAt bAr environment in the North East.

Pizzas were amazing and well worth the money. The lasagna was absolutely cremated. :( no one came back to check on us through the meal so in the end we just ate it. Good ipa selection

Fine food and a great beer list. Lovely staff. But my word it was totally disorganised. I hope this is just post-pandemic and the staff just need training.

Food was ok when it finally arrived.

Receipt was confusing. Didn't show correct prices...including a main that cost £0.00. It also didn't add up correctly. Also no option to leave a tip as it is included in the price already, sneaky!

Seating was daft, put us on a table that you couldn't get in or out of without asking people on tables either side of you to move. Share board was nice, burger was disappointing. No mint for mojito, which on a sat night is a bit daft. Service was fine. Little niggles that spoilt overall experience of what seems a decent place.

As always, half of the beers on the board were not available. This is always frustrating when visiting datbar.
For a half empty bar, the service was extremely slow.

Amazing food and amazing service. Shoe string fries are to die for. We took advantage tage of the half price deal and couldn't believe how cheap our night was! Such a shame that the restaraunt was practically empty, I really hope you are still getting the customers as you really deserve the support ! Felt very safe, it was very clean, and I love the hand wash stations at the entrance.

2 courses for £10 - great value for delicious food in large portions. Music was excellent, pity it had to compete with noise from air conditioning near our table - needs must nowadays though. Friendly staff.

Absolutely brilliant.

Food perfect!!

Staff perfect!!!

Service perfect!!!!

Absolutely nothing but praise where it’s deserved, the menu offered plenty of choice and when the meals were served we weren’t disappointed. Both meals and the dessert were nothing short of delicious.

Weren’t made to feel rushed or pestered and all in all the evening was just right
