Radisson Hotel Group is proud to announce the signing of Radisson RED Newcastle - bringing the fun, upscale hotel brand to one of the UK's most vibrant cities.

Set to open in 2023, the innovative and style-savvy hotel will be located in the city centre within The High Street Group's £120m Strawberry Place development, One St James', which is next to the much-loved home of Newcastle United Football Club, St. James' Park.

Designed to reflect the city's personality with upbeat, colourful rooms, Radisson RED Newcastle presents a playful twist on the conventional - informal services where anything goes, a social scene that's waiting to be shared and bold design that kickstarts the fun.

The new hotel will feature 200 guest rooms as well as a stylish sky bar - set to be one of the best in the city - as well as an open al fresco space on the roof, extensive conference and banqueting facilities, trendy informal meeting spaces and a top of the range residents' gym. A destination restaurant will also be on site and will not only service the hotel but the wider city as well. From amazing everyday essentials to Instagrammable statement designs, Radisson RED delivers a stand-out experience in buzzing destinations across Europe.

Positioned at the heart of One St James', Radisson RED will neighbour a collection of more than 300 world-class, affordable rent apartments and premium offices, alongside attractive public spaces, which will be bordered by a range of bars and restaurants. The adjacent St James' Park is home to a huge range of events besides football, including rugby, music concerts and more. Overall, the scheme will have hospitality facilities for over 1,000 guests which is perfectly placed for match days, busy weekends and events in the city.

This development forms part of The High Street Group's pipeline of 18 projects throughout the UK. The company already has a significant footprint in the North East, operating 21 hotels, bars and restaurants in the region. It also recently completed the tallest building in the city, Hadrian's Tower, which has 162 world class residential apartments, its own coffee shop, Hadrian's and Co Coffee House, as well as 3SIXTY, the luxurious champagne lounge on the 26th floor boasting unrivalled vistas of the area.

The central location of Radisson RED Newcastle is a few minutes' walk from the vibrant Grey Street and Bigg Market, which puts Newcastle on the map as one of the top party cities in the world and perfect for a weekend away.

Newcastle is also known as a hub of culture and architecture, including the ever-impressive Angel of the North statue. Other attractions include the BALTIC Centre, Discovery Museum, The Biscuit Factory, Sage Gateshead Performing Arts Centre, The Great North Museum and Laing Art Gallery.

Radisson RED Newcastle will be half a kilometre from Newcastle train station, also known as Newcastle Central. St. James Metro Station is adjacent to the hotel, Monument Metro Station is within walking distance and Newcastle Airport is located 10 kilometres away.
