Fluid Design Solutions is bringing something new to the table with a stunning restyled interior and innovative new menu at Barluga.

Owned, designed and managed by Fluid, the much-loved gastronomic stalwart is hidden behind the elegant façade of Grey Street. A firm favourite for the last 10 years amongst business people and ladies that lunch, Barluga had now been re-invigorated following a £1 million

The beautifully re-defined venue opened its doors on the 29th February with an elegant new interior that will enhance the Barluga experience, yet retain the same excellent standards, food and service that patrons have always enjoyed.

The new features, including a fresh open kitchen, exciting chef’s tables, as well as external terrace sporting a dramatic, rarely viewed backdrop of Newcastle, all come together for improved dining comfort and bring a new dimension to the Barluga dining experience.

The eclectic new menu, designed by talented head chef Dave Blackhall, offers something for all taste at lunch or dinner, with a range of unusually light bites, an a la carte menu, plus a high-quality Sunday lunch with a twist.

Barluga’s fresh interior acknowledges the collision in time of the art nouveau movement with its grand Edwardian structure, perfectly marrying into the fabric of the building with a twist of the contemporary.

The main dining area had been enhanced with a decorative period pressed tin ceiling, grand chandeliers, bespoke carpets and a beautifully backlit art nouveau inspired wine display. Period columns have also been introdstylebar1uced into the scheme to enhance the space and tie in with the theme.

‘A feature unlike anything patrons will have experienced in Newcastle before’

The existing mezzanine has been extended to accommodate an external terrace which opens up a rarely viewed backdrop of Newcastle and St Nicholas Cathedral, providing an idyllic setting to enjoy a meal or a drink during the summer days and light nights.

The bar has also been transformed with French rolled zinc bar tops and floating suspended from the canopy above the bar, a feature unlike anything patrons will have experienced in Newcastle before.
