Two bars in Newcastle will become the first in the UK to sell alcohol at a new minimum price.
The bars which will open on Grey Street in the city centre will have to set prices of at least one pound twenty five per unit.
That's nearly three times the current rate of forty five pence.
The council have agreed the new price with the bar owners saying it will control alcohol related crime in Newcastle.
