A recent survey revealed that young men from the north of England spend twice as much money on clothes as their southern counterparts.

Men from Newcastle spend more than any other region. The vision of scores of Geordies roaming the streets like preened peacocks grates clashes with stereotypical images of cloth caps and bottles of Newky Brown. People look to Manchester and Edinburgh as the clubbing capitals of the north, but Newcastle also boasts an impressive menu of nocturnal activity.

With a capacity of 1,200, the Riverside Club provides Newcastle's youth with four opportunities a week to dance the night away and parade the latest fashions.

Shindig, every Saturday night, features garage and house downstairs while the upper regions provide deep and hard house. Residents Scott Bradford and Scooby lead off on the decks, though punters have come to expect extra guest DJs of the highest quality.

And not a Newcastle FC shirt in sight.
