Civic Bar Beats

Fridays in January & February 5-7pm
1 day from now

Presented by Civic Theatre Newcastle

Civic Bar Beats Summer line-up:

Happy Hour is from 5pm-6pm

Live music from 5pm.

Novocastrians love discovering funky venues and the newest to hit the scene is actually one of the city’s oldest.

As the magnificent Civic Theatre celebrates 90 years in the entertainment business, the Civic Bar is taking on a new lease of life with a series of Friday night music sessions.

“Here at the Civic Theatre, we have a fabulous bar which spills out onto Wheeler Place,” said Civic Theatre Manager, Leonie Wallace.

“With its art deco ambience, it’s a remarkable space and it seems a shame to only open it when there’s a show in the theatre, so we’ll be throwing open the doors from 5pm and inviting guests to drop in and enjoy a unique entertainment offering.

“Happy hour will run from 5pm till 6pm and there’ll be tempting bar snack options to enjoy with your end-of-week celebratory drinks. The main attraction will be live music featuring a different emerging local artist each Friday, through Summer.
