Entertainment and Events

We do plan to have more entertainment in the main lounge of The Cosmopolitan Hotel on Saturday nights so please do keep checking back, from time to time, for more details.

It was all fun and games in The Cosmpolitan Hotel when the annual Hartlepool Carnival was on. It's all over for another year but the girls had a good time dressing up behind the bar. Jane, Robyn and Melissa look the part in their colourful ties and sunglasses.

As part of Hartlepool Headland Carnival, and decorated pubs in old Hartlepool, this was the Cosmopolitan Hotel's cocktail bar in the beer garden with barmaid Robyn McLeod surrounded by many vinyl long playing records.

..........................................................Ghost Hunt

..................................

Come and experience a ghost-hunt at The Cosmopolitan Hotel. The Cosmopolitan Hotel dates back to before the First World War and set in a conservation area in old Hartlepool known these days as The Headland. Paranormal activity started when alterations were made to the cellars in the 1970’s. Renovations were left half finished because workers found the atmosphere too spooky and refused to carry on digging.


Back in 2010 the public house made was named named in the Famous Grouse Famous 100 - a list put together by the Daily Telegraph newspaper. The Cosmopolitan was the only Teesside drinking spot to be named in the list and was one of just eleven across the North-East and Yorkshire.


An article in Hartlepool Mail on December 14th, 2010, mentions Jane Fleming, who owns the public house with her husband Tim. She said she was unaware they'd been named on the list until one of the regulars mentioned they had seen it. Contact Jane or Tim for a ghost hunting experience on 01429 274347.


The Famous Grouse - famous for the haunted tunnels that run between the pub and the local churchyard. Ghosts are said to include a grey lady, a wandering nun and a woman carrying a baby.
