The Smugglers Bar

by night & by day

By Night;

Life changes into top gear in ‘the best music bar in the North East’. We have a mixture of live bands and musicians nights 6 nights a week, with, occasionally, two gigs on a Sunday. There are also special events ranging from cookery shows; tribute nights to special performances by international artists including Boo Hewardine (Fairground Attraction); Rod Clements (Lindisfarne) and Baz Warne (Stranglers). Most events are free, others are very resonably priced.

By Day;

During the day we are open in the afternoon for all including children (until 9pm) and those with dogs. With spectacular views across Roker Bay, whatever the weather, you can watch the waves come crashing up the beach which is only a short distance away. It truly is a 2 minute walk through our outdoor area where you can sip your drinks to the sound of the sea.
