Bar manager of several nightclubs and bars across the country, Would just like to make a few comments on my night at Y-Idols or Idols as previously known.

Door Staff 5/5-High security and very well stated dress code etc

Bar Staff 4/5 Couple of them look as if they're still in school but the staff especially on the bar located on the top floor next to the doors to Beach and the young lad with dark hair on the longer bar 5/5 for service and very polite with a smile!

Interior 3/5 I adour the vibe of the nightclub itself and i get the whole look i just think a lot of the fixtures and fittings need renewed.

Prices 4/5 Larger £2 very good. I thought the Shots were a bit over priced. All else fair priced.

Facilities 1/5 I have to make a comment on the toliet. Im not sure how bad the ladies are but the gents need completly renewed. I know myself it is hard to keep on top of the fittings etc in the toliets but it can make all the difference to your customer.

Music/DJ I must say the music was interesting not what i had been told to prepare myself for.Some fantastic R&B and good Dance mixed in.


Overall 3/5 Maybe a 4/5

IDOLS
I WAS IN IDOLS FOR A 30TH BIRTHDAY ON FRIDAY.
CHEERS TO THE DJ I THINK JOHN OR JAMES FOR PUTTING SOME GOOD OLD IDOLS SONGS ON FOR US WE HAD A FANTASTIC NIGHT.
AND I WOULD LIKE TO PAY COMPLIMENTS TO THE BLONDE GIRL WHO WAS WEARING THE BOOTS BEHIND THE SMALLER BAR. SHE IS DEFINATLY ONE OF THE NICEST BAR STAFF IVE MET IN WHITLEY BAY AND WAS HAPPY TO CHAT TO US FOR A WHILE.
ANYWAY HOPE YOUR COLD IS GETTING BETTER DARLING AND YOU DID WELL TO UNDERSTAND MY GERMAN FRIEND.
NICE TO SEE THAT IDOLS IS STILL GOT ITS OLD SCHOOL FEEL. I WILL DEFINATLY HAVE TO COME DOWN ON A SATURDAY NIGHT AS I WAS TOLD BY THE BAR GIRL ITS A LOT MORE PACKED AND I HAVENT BEEN IN SINCE BEACH AND IDOLS BECAME ONE.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TONY.

im not that found of whitleybay for its nightlife normally although last weekend i may have been swayed slightly.

I started at the firestation and made my way down the strip and instead of my normal destination of Deep night club we decided to give good old idols a try...and what a shock!!

Really nice staff especially on the smaller bar..near to the doors. Very patient with my highly intoxicated friends. (plus the view of the lady phew....)!!!

The music was the main difference i noticed...not once did i hear 'we're having a gang bang...' or any of the old cheesy crap that they use to play. It was a lot of new dance and r&b with a few oldies just thrown in at the right time.

Loved my burger..had to mention that too.

I would say the only downfall with idols is that it still feels a bit to much like a pub rather than a night club. Maybe if they turned a few of the zillion lights off they have going on and lost the current 'tweenager' dancer and got a real woman they may fill the place.

I have to say though it was a good night though and i am going to try it again in the next month or so and i'll give more feed back if any inprovments.

Great Night, Great Place, Great People
I come up for the 3rd time to Newcastle/Whitley to watch my team (Southampton) play the Toon. We lost, but that's irrelevant. I've just got back now, and I'm full of happy memories.

Newcastle and Whitley (and I assume the the surrounding areas) have fantastic nightlife, friendly locals and many amenities.

This is epitomised by Y-Idols. The barstaff, bouncers and locals were friendly and sociable - much like alot of Newcastle aswell. I was in Y-Idols for a few drinks on Fri (17th Feb) and Sat (18th) and I did not see any trouble (unlike down South, where people go out looking for it...) - only people having a good time and living for the weekend.

I'm from the south and I would say that we are a more reserved, pretencious and in some ways, arrogant bunch and I don't like that at all. Reserved, fair enough, but arrogancy sucks.

I enjoyed my third trip to Newcastle so much I am now contemplating moving there in the next couple of years.

I'm tired as I've just got back and if I had the energy now, I'd write a longer, better constructed comment that this. I would, however, like to say the geordies are the friendliest, warmest people you could meet and are a credit to their city.

Thanks for a fantastic weekend, Newcastle and it's people.
