Tyneside chartered surveyors at Sanderson Weatherall have helped breathe new life into Newcastle’s iconic Julie’s nightclub.
Working on behalf of the building’s owner, Enigma Interactive, Sanderson Weatherall has negotiated the lease of the Quayside building which housed the nightspot to entrepreneur Rachael Frame.
The site will re-open in August as Tiger Hornsby – named after the 1960-70s socialite who herself was reputed to be a regular visitor of Julie’s. Rachael said: “Tiger Hornsby will be a completely fresh take on the cocktail bar experience – it is taking the greatest cocktails back to basics, all made with the finest ingredients, fantastic service, in a completely friendly and un-pretentious atmosphere.”
The property, in Quayside Studios, offers 2,088 sq ft of trading space, including a mezzanine area, and came free of brewery ties and with premises licences in place.
Kevin McGorie, Associate Partner at Sanderson Weatherall, said: “Julie’s was iconic to an entire generation who enjoyed Newcastle’s nightlife, including celebrities who visited or plied their trade in and around the city.
“It is great to see Rachael bringing it back to life as Tiger Hornsby. It’s in such a great location and has recently refurbished, so it is ideal to house a successful new nightspot.”
