Cash investment revives popular Osborne Road bar
Sunday 4th June 2017
The refurbishment has touched upon the Lounge Bar to extend space for customers and refresh its décor, which now has a rustic look featuring bare brick walls, dark wood tables with metal chairs, burnt orange leather booth seating and exaggerated light fittings.
A favourite with students and football fans, the bar’s TV screens have been replaced by a collection of 60” plasma screens, for a higher quality of viewing the major sporting events regularly screened.
Known best for its passion for sports, hearty food and weekend party atmosphere, Spy Bar can be found in a prime position on Osborne Road and is open seven days a week, from lunchtime until late evening.
In addition to its fresh interior, the lively bar has also welcomed a new food menu featuring a mix of burgers, pizzas and even a pairing of the two – ideal accompaniments to a casual beer with friends whilst watching live sports at the venue, or lunchtime fuel before a university match.
Stand out dishes include the Pepperoni Pizzaburger (£9.50) – an Angus burger, pepperoni, pizza sauce and mozzarella wrapped in a pizza and baked; the French Lick (£7.50) – beer battered onions, smoked bacon and Comté cheese in a bun; and the Crispy Duck and Hoi Sin Pizza (£8.50) – with finely chopped spring onion, chilli and cucumber.
A collection of cocktails have also been introduced alongside the range of beers, spirits and soft drinks already available, with blends perfect to drink out on the bar’s terrace throughout summer such as the Strawberry and Lychee Mojito, Passionfruit Caipirinha and Bubblegum Zombie.
Spy Bar’s general manager, Daniel Ormonde, said: “Works are complete and we have opened our doors just in time for the warmer weather and our busiest time of the year. It’s been great to see the positive reaction so far to our new look and enhancements.
“Thanks to our new furniture and layout, we can welcome more customers, who can take advantage of our plasma TVs and enjoy the updated food and drink offerings right in the heart of Jesmond. We do everything big; whether it’s food or the screens where we show live sports, and our extensive craft ale menu is certainly no different.”
