About us

Welcome to the roaring 1920's, a world of cool jazz, slick gangsters and of course; liquor. Prohibition Cabaret Bar will do it's very best to take you back to a simpler time. Good liquor, good company and good times await...

Established in 2015 Prohibition set up camp in a working railway arch in a cobbled back street just off the Gateshead side of the famous Tyne Bridge. In January 2019 owner Mitch Mitchell moved the whole venue; lock, stock and two oak-smoked barrels over to the cobbles of the notorious Pink Lane, in Newcastle’s bustling West End, taking over the iconic former Jazz Cafe premises where Mitch and Co breathed new life into the old walls and brought back the true spirit of Jazz and the era that started it all!.

such a sick hidden gem in Newcastle. There are always interesting events going on (many of which are free) and they offer some student drink deals which I always appreciate. 100% support this place and check out what they’ve got going on

I love the atmosphere of Prohibition Cabaret Bar the most. Especially when they have live music or Burlesque shows. The upstairs venue available to hire is a fantastic space for a party too. I had my 40th there and everyone was impressed with the place.

Lovely venue providing (often) free music and cabaret. Excellent period decor, ideal to pop in for a bit of time travel. Close to Central Station so ideal to relax before getting the train. Very good range if liquor.

My favourite venue to play in Newcastle. The ambience is outstanding, the decor is impeccable and the staff are super helpful and really quite lovely. They make you feel like part of the family. If I still lived in Newcastle I'd be asking for a job there. Taking on the legacy of the world famous Newcastle Jazz Café, the Prohibition cabaret bar could not be in better hands. I literally can not say enough for things about this place.

I've been coming here since it opened and never had less than a 5-star experience. I've been in on quiet nights, busy nights, live music nights, quiz nights, been in with a group, and by myself. The staff are always a joy and easy to talk with. The drinks are great (highly recommend The Racketeer from their signature serves) and reasonably priced. This is the place I can't wait to show my friends when they visit and so far, they've all been impressed! Shoutout to the house pianist too, who is a great fella.
