The largest Precinct in Newcastle city centre is the East End which stretches from Pacific Street to Darby Street, the area is home to many of the City's
most historical landmarks including Christ Church Cathedral.
Many old architecturally designed buildings house small to medium businesses offering professional services encompassing Accounting, Business Advisory, Creative Services, Finance, Health, Law, Recruitment and many more. With all of this business activity, it's no wonder that the East End has more cafes, restaurants and wine bars than any other precinct.
The East End is home to Hunter Street Mall, a paved area for pedestrians and cars, which has been part of the Newcastle creative industries evolution. Today, if you walk through Newcastle Mall you will find an exciting mix of creative businesses many of which started through Renew Newcastle's revitalisation of empty shop fronts. The Emporium, located on the ground floor of the former David Jones building – the city’s most iconic retail location – has been transformed into a fine arcade of boutiques filled with Newcastle creative talent, just waiting to be explored.
An enticing array of cafes, restaurants and wine bars stretches across Newcastle's East End making it the perfect location for a progressive dining experience. Visitors can walk between their favourite restaurants, stopping for a special beverage along the way. You can start at the most eastern point, Pacific Street which has it own mini restaurant strip, or begin on the western side of the mall with two recently refurbished pubs. It doesn't really matter as all paths lead to the next exciting establishment.
