Live it Up at Newcastle’s Best Pubs and Venues

Atlantic Escorts is predominantly a Sydney based agency. The majority of our escorts are located here and many have conveniently located incalls throughout the metro area. From the awe-inspiring selection of authentic Asian cuisine on offer in Haymarket to the eclectic calisthenic artists in Bondi Beach, we adore this city and like to think our fabulous escorts go a tiny way to making it a better place:)

That said, getting out of the city can be nice and one our favourite places to go is a quick jaunt up the M1 to Newcastle. It’s cosier and sleepier than Sydney but has charms all its own. Not least of which are a crop of new and innovative bars and clubs that rival some of Sydney’s.

Newcastle’s Best new Bars and Nightclubs

The Mattara Hotel
333 Charlestown Rd, Charlestown, NSW 2290

After renovations in 2012, this place is stunning. Full glass facade, the most modern architecture and endless events. They boast a huge screen perfect for watching sporting events – UFC 98 is airing there on May 15th and is free to attend.

In addition to being one of the best places to imbibe and watch live sport, The Mattara has an award winning Burlesque show. The next one is June 25th. Imagine a long dinner date with an Atlantic lady watching a burlesque show then retiring to your room for the real show… sounds like heaven.

The Junction Hotel
02 4962 8888

Epicureans get ready for a taste explosion. The Junction Hotel’s restaurant is one of the best in the country and proved it by winning the 2015 Awards for Excellence in Casual Dining. Traditional pub fare with a twist, the kitchen is open late Thursday for Sunday. Perfect for recharging after vigorous evening.

The Junction also features great live music from local talent every Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm.

The Dockyard
13 -14 / 1 Honeysuckle Dr, Newcastle, NSW
View Website
This is a craft beer lovers delight. Not a tourist hotspot, the dockyard is the pub of choice for Newcastle locals and 13 brews on draught you’re sure to find the perfect ale. Despite the great beer selection, the best thing about this pub is the patio. It’s situated right on the harbour and affords tranquil views. It’s even heated in the winter!

Hotel Delany
134 Darby St, Newcastle, NSW

Darby Street is at the heart of the Newcastle nightlife and eating scene and its crowning jewel is the Delany Hotel, affectionately referred to as ‘The Del’ by locals. Similar to the Dockyard, this classy venue offers a contemporary take on traditional pub food and there a la carte menu is perfect for a late night snack.

They have live music and DJ’s almost every night but for true club lovers things really kick off on Friday and Saturday with dance parties and their infamous TAB bar.

These are just a few of the places we’ve been to recently in Newcastle. Ivy, our very own dirty and very flirty, blonde escort is based here and is the perfect guide to the vibrant nightlife. If you’re planning on going don’t forget to check out the Atlantic Australia Page to see any of our courtesans touring there, or give us a call if you’d like one of our Sydney girls to come up and meet you to make your time by the harbour unforgettable.

A taste of things to come

To those who have been reading my little blogs, hello!

I am currently in Kuala Lumpur which is experiencing pretty warm weather (nothing compared to Thailand!) then rainy weather in the afternoons. It’s a taste of things to come for the following week in Singapore and then back home to cold, miserable Canberra. Don’t get me wrong, Canberra is a beautiful city! The cold and me just don’t mix well is all. Makes for a lazy and mopey Zoe.

Bangkok was an awesome city that I cannot wait to experience again. I really loved the mix of old and new, greenery and concrete.

Like Pattaya, it had a sort of chaotic calmness to it which I enjoyed a great deal. I did find that staying in the heat for too long made me feel very sleepy so I was thankful for the abundance of shopping malls to retire in to. The most interesting one would’ve had to be MBK. After catching the Sky Train there, which was super convenient, there is an exit directly in to the mall. The outer edges have your normal types of chain stores but throughout the middle and on certain floors it is full of these cramped stores or stalls bursting with bags, shoes, electronics, and other oddities. I found that there is a big copy brand culture here and to be honest some of them looked extremely close to the real thing! I tried on some shoes which was hilarious as I am a size 41 on average. Trying on a pair of heels with a very enthusiastic shop keeping trying to zip them up to prove they fit while my toes ached was definitely a sight to see. Zoe the big-footed giant! I did manage to find some gorgeous floor length dresses which was surprising. After shopping I had a nice relaxing evening with a face mask I bought while in HK. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

I had a very early flight to KL and took a taxi to the airport at 3.30am. I had never experienced a taxi driver fall asleep and swerve all over the road while trying to get me there so I found myself trying to communicate and give him some words of encouragement to keep him awake! I think that helped me stay awake for the remainder of the trip, lol!

I took the train from KLIA to Sentral and then had a lovely driver from there to my hotel. He was very informative and explained what many of the building where on the way which was really lovely.

 

Being back in KL feels like a second home. The locals are wonderful, helpful, and curious which is nice! Today I ate at Madame Kwan’s which have some really awesome local and international dishes. I usually go with the Nasi Lemak but it is a massive meal so went with the Mushroom Chicken Rice and a cold Iced Lemon Tea which is served with a side of sugar. I’m going to miss this place…

Thailand I love you – My Songkran adventure

Nothing could have prepared me for how hot it was in Thailand. I was very excited for the warm weather after miserable HK but wow…I’m just thankful the car ride was air conditioned and windows tinted. That evening was spend at my good friends house relaxing in the pool, drinking beer and a trip to the markets for some amazing ribs and prawns.

Songkran Water Festival in Bangkok

Yesterday was the big party day for Songkran in Pattaya. Walking around the streets, even outside of the city, you’d get adorable kids and the local Thai people blessing you with water and powder which is used for extending a blessing long after your clothes dry in the heat After trying to eat an amazing kebab while being attacked with water we took an open back taxi to the main city of Pattaya while people on the road side splashed us and other motorists. It was always fun hearing people squeal when the water was particularly icy!!

Here’s the official Bangkok Tour Page on this Festival

Walking around on the streets during this time was an amazing experience. People dressed up in all sorts of masks and costumes “gunning” down others with their water guns and smearing clay on each other while people danced with wild abandon. My friend and I agreed that most westerners take it a bit far by shooting you in the face which isn’t exactly cool and can really hurt. I think being a pale, tall, blonde, and female really turns you in to a target so we were drenched and our face, neck, ears, chest, and shoulders smeared with clay. Thankfully being splashed helps to wash it away long enough for it to be reapplied in 2 seconds. On our journey down the packed street we bought a cocktail each which consisted of blended fruit, ice, and at least 3 shots of tequila which is great for putting you in the mood for dancing.  I was unable to take any photos of the massive festivities for fear of my phone being destroyed but, if you have never been, I’d suggest checking out some videos on Youtube.

Goodbye rain, hello sunshine!

Its been a few days since I last posted so thought its only fair to fill you in on the amazing time I’ve been having lately!

I ended up with some great company from Bianca who arrived on Saturday evening. She is such a lovely lady who shares similar life experiences which made it super easy for us to get along and to know each other.

On Sunday we went to Din Tai Fung in Causeway which was a nice 15-20 min walk past some really impressive (and enormous) designer stores. One of them had a giant hand bag above the entrance and Bianca joked about if it were actually made out of leather and how many cows it would’ve taken to do so which was hilarious.

Once at Din Tai Fung we ordered an awesome hot and sour soup between us among many dumplings and veggie dishes. My favourite was possibly the fried dumplings which were super sinful and a nice treat for the end of my stay in Hong Kong.

After stuffing ourselves silly we waddled slowly back to the hotel to rest while admiring the amount of stores and markets while having a nice chat. We would have loved to stay out longer although the combination of a full belly and bad weather means indoors watching some movies/playing games sounded like the best option.

Sunday night I got to catch up with someone I’ve known from Sydney for a while and went out for dinner and drinks at a local pub which was similar to one you’d find in Australia although with a really…interesting…food menu. I ordered the ‘German sausage’ platter and some wings which was enjoyable although not at all authentic but that’s to be expected in a pub in HK.

After a few drinks and a good feed I stumbled back to the hotel and somehow managed to drunkenly pack my suitcase which took a hilariously long 2 hours and flopped on the bed to sleep. I really cannot drink like I used to!

Monday morning was a bit of a hungover blur to be honest. After having a coffee with Bianca I waiting for the shuttle bus to Hong Kong station to drop my bags and took the airport link train.

After some breakfast and more coffee in the lounge I made my way over to the gate and mistakenly thought the pilot walking next to me was talking to me instead of the other pilot behind me. ”Oh..sorry! I thought you were talking to me” I mumbled, feeling a little embarrassed by the misunderstanding.

”I wasn’t but I’ll happily have a chat with you!” he said. He asked where I was from and where I was traveling to. Turns out he was the pilot for my flight and had a daughter who lived close by to me; small world. I wait around for boarding and up comes the pilot again. He offered to move me to business class which was incredibly sweet. I already had booked in business as a treat after the long week in Hong Kong but said thanks anyway and that it was an extremely nice gesture.

After boarding and enjoying a nice juice and water to calm my stomach, two or three people were having a massive argument in the galley behind us. It was honestly a little frightening as I had no idea what was being said or if it would escalate further. The air hostesses could understand, I think, and were trying very hard to remain professional but their efforts in trying not to laugh made me think it was either some really pathetic passengers annoyed about something or they were having a domestic fight on the flight. We ended up leaving an hour late, I’m unsure if this was due to bad weather or the fighting passengers but upon disembarking I overheard something about police coming on board and that “he” was at the back of the craft.

How Technology Is Making The Escort World Better

Deep down all escorts share a common fear… That their clients don’t shower before they see them. That is a legit concern (shower boys, it makes everyone happier:)), but not what this article is about. No, it is something much deeper: an existential threat to our very way of life.

What I’m referring to, much like John Conner, is the rise of the machines. It’s hard not to read the news these days and not come across some article about recent advances in artificial intelligence or robotics.

Just last month a computer totally dominated the best Go player in the world (Wired Article Here). In case you’re not familiar with Go, which I wasn’t, it’s an ancient Chinese board game that is infinitely more complicated than chess. Experts thought it would be decades before an algorithm could take out top level players, and yet it just happened.

What Does This Mean For The Escort Industry?

Recent history shows that the sex industry often drives the tech world. Back in the1980’s VHS technology became ubiquitous because porn studios preferred it to the competing Beta Max format for home movies. More recently, Blu-Ray beat out the similar (and by some account superior) HD-DVD to become the high def optical disc of choice also partly in part to the adult industry favoring Blu-ray.

Humans love to invent stuff and the love to have sex. Combine those forces and you’ve got a recipe for powerful change. With this in mind, it isn’t hard to see a future with robotic sexbots that are so lifelike that most people prefer them to the real thing. Gasp! We at Atlantic Escorts think that would be a horrible outcome. For no other reason than the fact that we just can’t comprehend how a computer could be as witty and fun as Eve. Or how any human engineer could use synthetic parts to construct an ass anywhere close to as delectable as Zoe’s.

Still, the march or sex tech moves ever forward and we may be living in a golden age where humans still do prefer intimacy with other humans and we get the benefit of some pretty awesome devices that only enhance our trysts.

Which brings us to..

The Mod: The World’s First Open Source Dildo

A Tech Startup in Atlanta, USA, is constructing a technological marvel of a sex device. In 2013 they started an IndiGoGo campaign to build the Mod: a high quality vibrator that can do just about anything. They’re project was fully crowdfunded (you can still donate and be one of the first to get a Mod at https://igg.me/at/mod/x.

I haven’t had the pleasure of using one.. Yet. But just check out a few of these features:

- A standard, simple, and powerful control for the toy. The joystick can manipulate power and pulsing patterns. Shaking the nunchuck’s accelerometer can modulate the frequency of the vibrations. To fulfill one major request from Beta testers, we also programmed the “C” button as an easy “kill switch” to shut the toy off right when you come!

-A heartbeat sensor lets you feel your partner’s arousal in the throbbing toy. This one is a real favorite — it’s super cool to feel the rhythm increase with your partner’s excitement.

-We process the image coming from a webcam. The more movement in the image, the more intense the Mod’s response.

And many more. The code for the vibrator is open source so anyone and program new actions, patterns or anything, the sky’s the limit!

I’m really excited about this thing. Not only does it show remarkable ingenuity by one person to conceive of the idea, the fact that it got so quickly funded on Indigogo shows just what hunger there is in the world for exploring amazing ways to amplify sexual pleasure through technology.

If you have had the pleasure of using a mod, please get in touch and tell us all the details. I’m sure one of our kinky escorts on tour would love to hear about it.

Feeling like a part of the city

Well….as much as a 6’1 blonde can! The past couple of days have been interesting to say the least. Hong Kong has had some unfortunate weather as of late and I definitely paid the price with soaked shoes and pants while on my way to meet with a dear friend. Thankfully with some smarts on his side, we used a hairdryer to air them out!

Tsim Sha Tsu station can be quite tricky to navigate in a sleepy state so its important to plan ahead and actually read where the exits take you so you don’t spend time unnecessarily walking in terrible weather! Hard lessons were learnt that day haha!

I was shown the most amazing book store on Wednesday. Its called Eslite which I found funny as it’s really not ‘lite’ with, going by memory, 3 floors of books and a cafe (or two!?).

It has a dim library feel with lovely seating areas to read and just relax. It is open until 2am Thurs-Sat which is something that I will miss greatly when its time to go. I would seriously recommend it to anyone who finds they need some quiet time from the city.

Go For Gold With Bianca… hopefully

Bianca has a lot going for her; she’s tanned, buxom, sweet and has some downright fawning reviews on punterplanet. Of her many specialities, one thing she really excels at are x-rated stripteases.

She can move muscles I didn’t even know existed. Watching her put on a seductive show gets one thinking about just what an athletic undertaking removing one’s clothes in a teasing manner can be – if it’s done right. Balance, strength coordination and some jaw dropping flexibility are all required in abundance to pull off some of the moves Bianca is capable of.

Turns out I’m not alone in thinking that those proficient in the stripping arts are top athletes and deserve to be recognized as such.

Pole Dancing In The Next Olympics?

I would have scoffed at this a few years ago but it’s starting to look like a real possibility. Pole dancing (or simple ‘Pole’ as its practitioners call it, is skyrocketing in popularity. Over 150 million people regularly use the ancient Chinese art as a workout and just last year the World Pole Dancing Championships enjoyed record attendance and prize money.

With this newfound acclaim has come a serious push to get Pole Dancing declared an official olympic sport. They’ve got a petition going on change.org (which can sign here if you’d like to see this, and who wouldn’t?) and pole dancing was included in last years International Urban Games alongside traditional sports like basketball.

Though it still has somewhat of an image problem, proponents are optimistic and think it’s a real possibility that you’ll be seeing bikini clad women straddling a pole for all the world to see next summer.

It’s good to see dedicated athletes and performers get recognition. Whether or not the world is ready for it by 2016… who’s to say. But you can be darn sure that if you book an appointment with Bianca at least one pole will get an olympic level workout.

Back from the HK waddle

Firstly, if you’re wondering what I mean by the HK waddle, being a fast walker surrounded by much shorter and slower people means I feel like a penguin. I feel like a Gentoo penguin, who is the fastest swimmer of all the diving birds, who has been forced to waddle awkwardly on land surrounded by Fairy penguins. It apparently is possibly to trip over yourself due to moving too slowly.

Still a Zombie

Guess who’s still in the hotel roooooom…? That’s right, the zombie is now trying to play video games while she falls asleep at the desk!  

But seriously, I did go outside for a grand total of 15 minutes which I think is deserving of some kind of award…or cake….which is exactly what I did while buying a sim card at the nearby 7/11. What can I say? They were little and sweet and I gobbled them up. I can’t turn down sweets offered to me by lovey old ladies!

I had a nice long chat about Twitter with Sarah regarding the frequency of fights and rants which only solidifies my reasons to not make one. Writing to you guys and girls like this is much more enjoyable for me, and hopefully you too. I actually wanted to take this moment to thank Sarah for encouraging me to write a Travel Diary of sorts. She has seriously been the most empowering and supportive person from day 1, and I wasn’t exactly “Girl of the Year” when I first started. Thanks for helping me to become the confident and happy girl I am today, your patience means the world.

Okay that got really sappy. I just think she’s super and is deserving of some recognition!

ANYWAY! So I think that chat (and the sugar laden mini cakes) woke me up enough to reconsider taking a nap which is probably for the best. It’s about time I actually get my butt outside and do those things I mentioned earlier

Zoe the Zombie

The flight wasn’t bad. Ended up watching a movie called ”Joy” staring Jennifer Lawrence (possible my fave female actor and lady crush) as a divorced mother of two living with, and looking after, her dysfunctional family while her dreams are put on hold. Right now I am seated at Hong Kong Airport just taking it easy while I sip on my iced coffee and try to scrounge together some resemblance of a human being. I think the plan for today is to get a sim card, check in to the hotel, get a manicure…massage too, and go walking around the city for a few hours to get rid of this post flight water retention! Cankles aren’t exactly sexy on me!
