DJ Reviews of BALTIC
The following information will be useful to DJs, entertainers and other service providers who have been hired to work at BALTIC.
Upper Function Room
This review provided by Disco Dynamite on 02/09/2016
Upper Function Room is located on the First Floor via lift floor.
Parking: Access: Facilities: Staff: Permanent wooden dancefloor
No sound limiter
No useable in-house effects No stage area
No effective blackout
PARKING: There is a pay and display, barrier controlled car park in operation nearby but the parking charges a astronomical and apply 24 / 7. Reverse up to the main reception doors for load in then move to a nearby free side street.
ACCESS: For the upstairs function room have the side loading doors opened and carry the gear along a short corridor, through a single loading door into the function room and they like you to setup diagonally across the rear right corner.
STAFF: Staff are all spot on. Bar staff are friendly, wedding planners are great and the bouncers have an amusing sense of humour! Last orders are 01:30, music off 01:45, room clear by 02:00.
COMMENTS: The upper function room can easily accommodate 150 - 200 guests and has a beautiful view of the River Tyne and Newcastle City Centre from the Northen balcony. It also has a late license till 2am so be prepared for a long stay ;)

Baltic Kitchen is located on the Ground floor.
Parking: Access: Staff: Air conditioned
Vinyl or stone floor area for dancing
Some useable in-house effects
No stage area
SOUND LIMITER - Moderately sensitive
No effective blackout
PARKING: There is a pay and display (barrier operated) car park adjoining the building. £2 for first hour, £1 per each additional hour. Free side street parking nearby after 6pm - we used that.
ACCESS: Easiest way is through the main doors at reception and carry the kit down to The Baltic Kitchen (restaurant by day / party venue at night). There are automatic doors en route which open when you approach them (very handy :)
STAFF: Lots of staff working here. All are helpful, friendly, polite and happy to help with loading / setup / etc. Kept fed and watered all night. Great staff. The venue has its own Wedding Planners too :)
COMMENTS: Hyper stylish venue with a glass sided function room overlooking the River Tyne / Millennium Bridge / etc. Stunning views (Ill upload a pic later). Sound must not exceed 90db else all hell breaks loose !! Other than that, a superb venue best suited to Wedding Receptions, corporate events, high end occasions, etc. Power comes from behind the bar so take longish extensions. Wear a shirt and tie to work here.

The DJ Says...
Who better to comment on the suitability of venues for parties and events than those who work in them on a regular basis? Folks who also get to see how things work behind the scenes?

"The Baltic is a modern and up to date venue providing the perfect location for any event from a Wedding through to a corporate function. The venue is large and well laid out with exceptional views of Newcastles Quayside. The food is excellent and the event staff very helpful and professional."

"The Baltic Arts Centre is situated at the edge of the River Tyne and is an ultra modern looking venue with a lot of external glass paneling. It boasts a huge amount of culture with it's unique architecture and has some stunning views across the quayside and over to Gateshead. 'The Kitchen' is actually one of the function rooms and there are further function rooms dotted around the building on different floors. This is the sort of venue that you hire if you are trying to make a good impression and is great for Wedding Receptions, corporate events and the like. The building can accommodate several hundred guests when utilising multiple rooms. There are also several hotels located nearby for guests to stay over in following an event."
