Spotlight: Chaophraya Newcastle Late Lounge

We experienced the Late Lounge at Chaophraya Newcastle in association with Moet & Chandon recently after being invited along.

Chaophraya is always a restaurant I’ve wanted to try but just never gone too and this evening gave a perfect opportunity to sample and experience this venue with welcome drinks, canapés, Thai BBQ sampling, and live music. 

The garden spritz we had as welcome drink was a perfect mix for the summer, the cocktails were fresh, food absolutely gorgeous and the atmosphere made for a perfect evening out. 

Late Lounge had been a ticketed event at £15 per person and was a great evening to sit out on the terrace, enjoy some beer and cocktails and sample the food. You are not limited to ordering more food should you wish to turn it into a meal experience. Staff were always on hand, friendly and provided lovely service. No dates are set yet but we expect this to be coming back later in the summer so keep an eye out on the restaurants socials or website for more information.

I’m already planning the next visit for a proper full meal. My brother in law had visited and said it had been one of the best pad Thai curries he’s ever had. 

If you are unable to get to the restaurant then do not worry, they also offer a dine at home service via Call and Collect or Deliveroo who will bring this food direct to your door to enjoy.

If you are a large group and want some intimacy they offer a private dining room that looks out onto the terrace, giving you and your friends that privacy in what is called, The Thai Garden

It fits 16 seated, 18 standing, 20 theatre style or 10 classroom style. The private dining room is great for corporate business meetings and presentations as well as more intimate celebrations and occasions. 

As well as general dining and dine at home the restaurant offers happy hour, bottomless brunches and a cooking school, and cocktail classes.

Bottomless Brunches

Other private dining options available too.

Enjoy their Royal Bottomless Brunch consisting of a signature sharing platter, a delicious main and 90 minutes of bottomless prosecco, bottles of Singha beer, or choose from a number of cocktails.
