Breaking News ! Stack will be staying in Newcastle city centre until at least 2024. The popular shipping container venue will be extending its stay on the old Odeon cinema site in Pilgrim Street, after council bosses agreed to grant it a new licence. The food, drink, and live music hub has welcomed more than two million customers since its 2018 opening and recently opened a sister venue in Seaburn. Following a Newcastle City Council licensing hearing last week, owners Danieli Holdings have now been granted a three-year extension at the prime city centre location beyond the end of Stack’s existing licence next April. The new licence will also allow some units in the container village to be converted into games areas offering ‘competitive socialising’ activities like darts and shuffleboard – while its ice bar will also become a permanent fixture. Ahead of the hearing, concerns had been raised about the venue’s impact on nearby neighbours in the Bewick Court tower block – one of whom claimed that they were forced to endure loud noise “blasting” into their bedroom. City centre councillor Jane Byrne also said she had received “numerous complaints” about Stack from Bewick Court residents, but later withdrew her objection to the new plans.

He added that there was “no evidence” that allowing Stack to remain would cause an increase in crime or that the venue had breached noise conditions.

. He said: “What we have found is that Bewick Court, standing as it does as a tall building in the cityscape, can receive noise not just from Stack but other premises. "There have been times when we have been blamed for noise that has come from sources as far away as the Vermont. “But we certainly welcome a relationship and an involvement with residents of Bewick Court in order to fine tune any noise that needs to be fine tuned.” No objections to the plans were raised during the hearing and councillors on the licensing panel asked no questions of the developer. Sarah Smith, head of licensing at Sintons solicitors, said: “Stack has become a firm favourite in Newcastle’s leisure scene and we are delighted it will be a fixture of the city centre until 2024 at least. “It has become known for its wide variety of offering, which makes it a venue people can visit from day into night, and for the platform it provides for independent traders. It regenerated a disused area of the city and introduced something new and modern, which has helped to bring new footfall into the Pilgrim Street area.”
