We are for and of the people

Named after English anthropologist Sir Edward Burnett Tylor, community is at the heart of The Edwards and of Akasha – we are shaped by our staff, our families and friends, and our locals, and settle for nothing less than remarkable in all things.

We strive to elevate your everyday and make it memorable, letting our passion and pride guide us. From our food and beverages to our events to exhibitions and live acts, we seek to provide you with unforgettable and unique experiences that delight and inspire.

Since its first opening in 2014 through to today as part of the Akasha Group, The Edwards has been the heart of food, music and culture in Newcastle’s West End – come share the vibe with us and be part of the tribe.
