Taking up residence on the well famed ‘Jesmond Strip’ on Osborne Road, newcomer 97 & Social takes over the old Bar Berlise spot and heads up an impressive line-up in the area from the Cairn Group.
After a whopping £500,000 investment, 97 & Social is an opulent affair. From the wood panelling and wing back chairs to the large booths ideal for accommodating groups or parties willing to share, the social element of the venture certainly has been catered for. For those fair weather days, the outside space has been retained and re-used to offer both outside drinking and dining. The Bar Berlise canopies have escaped the renovation and remain in place.
