Since 1938 our Coffee Rooms venue has been a much-loved meeting point for all manner of Newcastle folk and visitors to the city. When COVID hit, we were forced to close our cinema and all our hospitality spaces for almost 18 months.
The Coffee Rooms will remain closed for the time being whilst we continue to face challenges from COVID-19 affecting our staffing levels, as we focus on running our Bar Cafe and Vicolo venues. We have however replaced the worn-out carpets, repainted the walls, re-covered the banquet seating and installed a drop-down screen and sound equipment so we can host special screenings in the evenings as part of our programme of events in the future. We still have some further work to carry out on improving the kitchen equipment and developing our menu, so once this had been completed, we will be able to look ahead to re-opening the Coffee Rooms.
