Great Beer
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.

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

We go to Dat Bar because the food's good and they have a great selection of beers. The staff also know their stuff and are happy to discuss beer selection or try to make off-menu changes to your food selection.

Service was great, pizza awesome as ever and the changes to the restaurant layout are alright too. Preferred the old way but understand the reason it was changed.

Will 100% be back with or without the current 50% off food deal

Food was exceptional but took a while for them to take our order but it was fine because of everything going on. A little unorganised but would definitely go again. Food was to die for 😍 and the staff were very friendly!
