Luther's Crowned King

It’s official: Mens Bar is no more. Your new SU Bar will be…Luther’s!

It has been a hotly debated topic throughout the week not only for students at Newcastle, but for many Alumni too.

Voted for at the same time as the NUSU Officer Elections 2017/18, students were asked to vote for their favourite name to replace Mens Bar.

The three names were:

Luther's - On the 13th of November, 1967, Newcastle University awarded Dr Martin Luther King an honorary doctorate in Civil Law – the only UK university to do so during his lifetime. This name intends to celebrate the ongoing link between Newcastle University and the Civil Rights movement.

The Cross & Lion  - A name designed to reflect the coat of arms of Newcastle University which has been in existence since it split from Durham University in 1963.

Aelius - From ‘Pons Aelius’, the name of a Roman fort which would later become Newcastle. This fort was the site of the first bridge to be built across the Tyne.

We’ll see you for a drink in Luther’s soon!
