Newcastle cocktail bar All Seeing Eye sits above two of the north-east city’s nightlife hotspots – Blackie Boy and Perdu.
All Seeing Eye is described on the bar’s website as a “truly unique and out-of-sight” venue with an extensive and innovative cocktail list.
The bar is grand, with vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows, gold foil walls and industrial, yet sophisticated, air vents and heating. It really is a unique environment.
All Seeing Eye’s cocktail menu begins like a storybook, telling potential drinkers: “Within the contents of this book you will come across a myriad of concoctions both weird and wonderful, capable of enchanting the senses of even the most experience wizards.
“If there’s a beverage you like that you can’t see within the contents of this masterly crafted manual, please ask our resident bartenders and they’ll do their utmost to make it the best and most spellbinding you’ve had!”
The menu is filled with magical references, citing alchemy and all kinds of wonderful words in its descriptions.
Prices range from £5.95 to £7.95, with cocktails including the Bramble (£5.95) and the Miami Vice (£6.95), which is two drinks in one glass – a strawberry daiquiri and a pina colada.
The Squid Ink Margarita is made using 100% agave Tequila, agave syrup, lime juice and a drop of squid ink.
