A brand new venture by the owners of Tynemouth’s favourite drinking hole and eatery, Lola Jean’s, opened it’s doors to the public in Newcastle early November 2014.
Located in Grainger Town, the heart of Newcastle’s city centre round the corner from Newcastle’s Theatre Royal, countless boutique shops, restaurants and late night boozers, Lola Jean’s is the freshest addition in the revival of the beloved centre.
Following on from their Tynemouth success, situated on ever popular Front Street, the Lola Jeans delivers honest, delicious, pocket friendly food and drink in their new home.
Successor to the former site of Newcastle institution and one of the city’s longest running restaurants, The Godfather. Dating back to the mid 1800’s many of the remaining original fixtures and fittings have bee artistically incorporated into the finished product. They’ve stripped back decades of plasterboard to unearth period characteristics enabling them to create a space combining classic décor and reclaimed furnishings, along with some complimentary modern twists. Taking style notes from the continental wine bars, New York roadside deli’s, Parisian pavement café’s, and East London¹s basement dives that they have explored in experienced years of travel, the outcome is unique.
A space to get lost in that incorporates timeless furnishings and attention to detail with a hint of the industrial.
Lola Jeans exciting menu is soaked in classic BBQ’d American, and hearty English dishes taking the traditional and defining it just a little bit special. As with the original, they have paired up with local specialists to lovingly devise a menu featuring as much high quality regionally sourced produce as we could possibly muster. Communicating with the producers from roots to plate it’s a selection of food for anyone to be proud of.
