Newcastle's Card, Gift & Coffee Shop

What Shop is this?

Gifts, Cards, Coffee & more...

The orange door next to Dog Leap Stairs in Newcastle opened in July 2014.
Located just under the majestic rail arch, down Grey Street and Dean Street.
We stock some ace gifts, or presents as we prefer to call them, including local art. We're getting more known for the growing collection of truly original greeting cards that 'say it like it is' and a variety of Geordie and Northern themed cards (Good Crack).
Newcastle Souvenir Shop logo
If you're after super Souvenirs we've got all sorts from magnets to tea towels and the essential postcards, now located in our new dedicated indepedent Souvenir Shop right across the road at 6 Dean Street which we've aptly named Souvenirs upon Tyne.
Coffee on the Side logo
In 2019 Coffee on the Side was born, a Grade 1 Coffee shop so you can get Latte, Cappuccino, Flat White, Americano, Espresso, Tea, Green Tea and Hot Chocolate. Cold Drinks and snacks are also available.

61 Side is our actual street address, we're located on an infamous street called SIDE, just up from the Tyne Bridge and down from Newcastle's Castle.
Whilst we are called UpSide Down Presents, we wanted to make the web address shorter and snappier, so 61side.co.uk is the online version of 61 Side, Newcastle, NE1 3JE.

Who do we think we are?

One man & his dog...

Sean & his dog Oscar are the main living creatures on site, although Oscar is more part-time. Of course many others are involved on 'The Side', from family & friends to other local businesses, folk and the like.

Original Greeting Cards
We stock a range of greeting cards for all occasions, that are truly unique, many hilarious, a lot naughty. We don't believe in cards for cards sake, we think they should really state something, and boy do ours stand out. We have locally themed Geordie cards, especially those rare cards with MAM on (not Mum or Mom), and lots of funny one-liners that "say it how it is".
Orange Gift Presents Icon
Gifts / Presents
We carefully select gifts from a range of local, national and international suppliers. Impulse gifts like little pick ups that will make you or others really have a perky-pick-up, to industry design-led and proper cool things you just gotta have/want.
For a relatively small space, we've got a huge range of gifts, cards & ideas.
We're all about thoughtfulness, creativity, originality and affordability!

Why Visit?

We're not just a shop...

We aren't exactly just about generating transactions. We're all about the experience, the personal touch; from when we sell you quality stuff to give onto someone else, or even yourself! We play top tunes in our shop, local musician or band? Pop your stuff in we'll play it (no naughty words). We're always open to have convos about the area, what to see and do, the weather and all in-between. Well behaved dogs are welcome too, with free water and massages on-hand. So when we're open, the door isn't just open, lets open our minds ...
then wallets/purses if you want to :)
