Castle del Mar winning hearts in Newcastle’s cocktail scene


Chili, cucumber, coffee beans, lemon rinds, marshmallows, mint and ice are just a few of the ingredients that the mixologists at Castle del Mar are adding to your cocktail, to make it truly unique and memorable. 

As Newcastle’s freshest address, the team are keen to impress, focusing on creating a sophisticated drinking experience in a city-meets-seaside setting. 

Have a flavour in mind? ask the Castle del Mar mixologists to create your new favourite cocktail.

The King Street haunt is the brainchild of two former Perth school mates Tim Chapman and Peter Jennings. 

Together with the help of their dedicated families and extensive hospitality background, they’ve created a relaxed yet classy establishment, serving a crafted cocktail list that would envy the bars of Ibiza. 

From Chili Margheritas to its now-signature ‘Yellow Brick Road’ cocktail, impressive wine list and table service, no request is too much to ask of the creative makers and onsite DJ. 

Arches and high ceilings help give Castle del Mar its unique vibe.

Named after its royal street address blended with the vibe it hopes to bring its visitors, this is a space that has been carefully crafted to bring a touch of luxury to an historic part of the CBD.  

“It looked like a castle when we first saw it,” says Tim. 

“With its high ceilings and grand cantilever, it impressed us from the beginning. 

“Elegant, stylish, sophisticated” are all words being used by Castle del Mar guests in its 5-star reviews

 “It’s a very impressive space, and it’s right near the ocean which worked with us wanting a chilled coastal vibe.” 

The 5-star rated venue is already proving popular, with guests snapping up the space for corporate functions and regular events. 

This month the venue will begin playing host to Salsa Thursdays, as well as Live Art on Sundays. 

“It’s a unique, flexible space and that allows us to create an event to match the client, not the other way around.”
