Shearer's Bar is the former name of a sports bar owned by Newcastle United and forming part of St James' Park, the team's stadium in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. It was named in honour of the club's all-time top scorer, Alan Shearer.[1] The bar was renamed 'Nine' in July 2013 by the club, who said that popularity of the venue had "dwindled".[2]

The bar was opened in December 2004 and has become an important part of the features at St James' Park. It is designed for the supporters and usually hosts up to 1000 people on a match-day. Since it opened it has become a city attraction and has won awards, including "Best Bar None" Award in 2007.[1] The bar will be refurbished this summer to keep up with competition of the new bar next door, The Terrace.
