Yeh it's really fun. Great atmosphere. Good for a jokes night out. Free entry so will save you money. Defo worth it. Loads of students

Great music, lively atmosphere and a great place for students to go out! It's on the cheap side too!

Flares is great for those looking for golden oldies music and is very student friendly in the sense that it is free entry. It's music all ages can enjoy no matter what state you're in. The only negative is the price of drinks which are not student friendly in the slightest however this is not a pres bar so it can get away with it.

It plays the best music in town when you just want to have a good dance with your pals. The drinks are cheap and the atmosphere is great as everyone is there for a good time.

This is one of the best places in Newcastle for an easily fun night out. They always play cheesy music that everyone knows from their school days and the DJ's shoutouts are somewhat reminiscent of an embarrassing dad trying to be a DJ. Most people are very drunk at flares. With free entry (except for Friday/Saturday) it is a good deal, though drinks are a little more pricy than other cheap Newcastle bars (though nothing like club prices) - they also don't sell trebles. Venue does feel a bit dirty and old.

I really enjoy the music in flares, they have a good variety! The drinks are also well priced. However the toilets are not so great, they could do with fixing/updating and made to feel more warming.

Flares is the best night out in Newcastle if you love dancing and 80s music! Always a great vibe and good prices for drinks!

I love flares music and the light up dance floor, only comment would be that the drinks could be a little cheaper to match the prices of soho/trebs bars.

It is always an excellent time in flares when I remember it. On student nights the entry is free, the drinks are cheap and the memories last a lifetime.

Great music, good atmosphere, drinks are a but expensive though. Free entry on weekdays is great and the smoke machines and disco balls are good fun. The staff are alright I guess and love the new free popcorn deal.

I love Flares. I love cheesy songs that get everyone singing along and dancing. If you like 80’s music and disco balls it is the place for you. There is a platform that makes it super fun to do some straight-out-of-the-movies dance routines and £1 (I think) shots of every flavor. They take song requests and the doormen are great. Let me borrow their hotspot once when I forgot to pay my cell phone bill. Definitely friendly to students but not the cheapest bar you can go to. It can also get pretty crowded later in the night but they stop allowing people in an hour before they close.

Great for a boogie if you like old school bangers, unfortunately you have to pay for entry on weekends and the drinks are pretty expensive for newcastle. Other than that its 10/10 for music and atmosphere

Cheesiest place you'll ever go, great 80's nights guaranteed fun. Good atmosphere and usually free to get in but drinks can be quite expensive.

Great night, good, fun, cheesy music from the best period of music. Friendly staff. Drink prices are pretty good and a cool light up floor. You'd go here and then go to a club after if you wanted a great night.

Best night - very student friendly, not too pricey and great music. Only problem is that week nights are free entrance but you have to pay on weekends which makes it less attractive at that time.
