Newcastle - Rock bars?

hi all,


going to Newcastle this saturday to see NIN/QOTSA.


anyone know of any good rock bars around the Newcastle Entertainment centre?

or anywhere close?

Cambridge Hotel used to be pretty cool but that’s on Hunter Street…

Bar on the Hill at Newcastle uni used to get good bands, not sure if non students can get in but it used to just cost $5 or so more for tix, 5 min can from the NEC…
