While the Newcastle University has an arsenal of exciting and interactive activities, one place in particular epitomises the 'student' experience.
The Godfrey Tanner bar is nice little balcony spot located at the Callaghan campus near the Shortland hub. Weekly entertainment allows for the meeting of new people who share common interests.
Happy hour is an every day occurrence from four to five pm. Every Tuesday within the month includes: an open mic night, debates (political to humorous topics), karaoke and Q&A sessions. The pool competition is held every Wednesday afternoon, from three to six, where through personal experience has added many companions.
It is free to enter and the prospect of winning is almost always overshadowed by conversation. Thursdays challenge you to video game competitions with fellow students from three to five in the afternoon. Where would a bar be without trivia? Trivia is held on Fridays from one where you can choose to be a single-person team or you can gather your friends together to win free bar prizes.
If you have come in or are just wandering around, the Godfrey Tanner bar is a great atmosphere to have a quiet drink, satisfy your appetite or to get involved with interesting and new people.
