Last week I was lucky enough to be invited along to the launch night of Tapas Revolution’s highly anticipated Lounge & Sangria Bar on Blackett Street, Newcastle. Alongside the restaurant a beautiful separate bar area has been created. With vivid blue tiles, potted greenery and Iberian music it brings a taste of Madrid’s lively bar scene to Newcastle. 

Owner Omar Allibhoy comments: “I’m excited to be opening our first Lounge & Sangria Bar in Newcastle, there’s a great bar scene here and I’m excited to get involved and bring some Spanish twists to the mix.“

The bar has a unique selection of tastastic sangria filled with innovative fruit and flavour combinations. I have only had sangria a few times so I was looking forward to sampling the five different kinds the menu had to offer. Some of my favorites from the night were;

Skinny Tradicional 
(£16.00) - with 30% less sugar, which is a mix of red wine, pineapple, orange and strawberry. 

Sparkling Tropical Sangria 
(£18.00) - a blend of refreshing sangria with crisp Cava, passion fruit, watermelon, pineapple.

White Berry Sangria
(£16.00) - made with white wine, blueberry, raspberry, strawberry and blackberries.

Bar De Tapas also has a fantastic new Gin and Tonic menu or ‘Gin Tonics’ as they are called in Spain. The Gin Tonic menu features a selection of Omar’s favourite Spanish distilleries that use fresh regional botanicals to produce a fine aromatic spirit. Each served in the traditional balloon glass which makes it feel extra special. Highlights include;

(£8.00) – a blend of mahon gin served with Fever-Tree Indian tonic, homemade lemonade and a lemon and lime garnish 

Puerto de Indias Strawberry 
(£8.00)a mix of delicate gin made with Andalusian strawberries and served with Fever-Tree elderflower tonic, strawberry and mint.

An array of Spanish beers from family owned premium lager Estrella Galicia will also be on the menu, alongside a carefully curated selection of craft beer. For wine enthusiasts there will be a large cellar wall with a wide selection of wines from across Spain.

I had such a fantastic night at the launch of Tapas Revolution Newcastle Bar. They have a splendiferous selection of sangria that will make your taste buds sparkle and your soul sing. The best sangria Ive tasted fo sho! I am already planning my next visit with the girls and we are going to make a night of it. Sangria, Cocktails, Gin Tonic & Tapas.. I can't wait!
