Pumphrey's Blues Cafe - open now!

Pumphrey's in Newcastle's historic Cloth Market has reopened as a blues cafe. The old school boozer has been transformed - and probably jettisoned its previous clientele along the way - into a chic blues dive. It could well compliment or be an alternative to Billy Bootleggers up on Nelson Street. 

Pumphrey's ground floor is open offering a range of (non-cask) beers, the walls are plastered with facsimiles of to-die-for vintage posters - take a look at the photos. It is hoped the first floor performance space will be ready to open its doors in the coming weeks and rumour has it the best Chicago blues band in town - the King Bees - will be getting down to tear it up.
