Newcastle’s first hydration bar is set to open, with intravenous treatments such as the "Jet-lag jolt" and "Hydrate Hangover".

Opening on August 18, the IV Lounge in Wickham is the brainchild of local businesswomen and colleagues Simone Le Mesurier, Grace Page and Angela Mackenzie. Common in the US and some of our capital cities, hydration bars offer vitamins and minerals via an IV drip.
