April showers. Isn’t that what they say? It certainly has been showery until recently, did anyone notice all of those lambs tottering around in the bracing wind, rain and snow? And now… Well now we’re in a heat wave. Crack out the barbies – you know what I mean.

Speaking of showers. What about baby showers? Hint to the Royal baby… Speculation is that the babe will arrive and be with us within the next couple of weeks. He or she is to be the youngest child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and sibling to Charlotte and George. An exciting time for the family as well as for the nation.

Back to baby showers in general, it’s something that we are no stranger to hosting here at the Assembly Rooms and Bonbar. We are available for private hire across many rooms if you require a private space, however if you’d prefer something a little more ‘cool’ we can arrange private hire of areas in Bonbar. I know you may think, ‘why on earth do we want to bring a pregnant lady to bar. Alas a woman who can’t drink?!’. Well we can offer an outstanding Afternoon tea, both of the Ladies and Gents variety.

And for those who can take a drink we have one of the best stocked bars in Newcastle. Oh yes and a pretty impressive wine and cocktail list too. Did we mention our entire afternoon tea is freshly handmade to order, in house by our very own talented Susan? We can guarantee you wouldn’t get that everywhere you go for afternoon tea… But that’s none of our business. Even the jam is homemade… Just saying.

Ideas for the next baby shower..? Afternoon tea at Bonbar.
