Loved this place! It's big enough to be in one part of the venue without getting hassled but small enough and open plan so you can see what's going on. Drag queen (didn't get the name) was pretty good, very witty and made the night so enjoyable!

Another year, another stay and another party at Flying Handbag. Still the same great atmosphere, good banter with DJ Carmen and all friendly people. Bar staff as quick as possibly you could wish for.

Passed this bar by chance after the Funny Girls, Kareoke is always an attraction to me and Ming especially after the reasonably priced Pinot Grigot at Funny Girls (2 bottles) had a good sing song in a busy bar where the DJ really seemed to know how to read a room and work that musically to it's advantage, a firm...

We come to the flying handbag every time we come go to blackpool. It's always a great night. Always a good mix of people, great drink selection at good prices. DJ Carmen is as always fantastic and one of the main reasons we go, she is funny and hilarious every time and plays great music. We were there for halloween... More

This was my 2nd time in the Flying Handbag and it was absolutely fantastic again. The drag act DJ Carmen is brilliant and she will play any requests you have. She covered every genre and every decade over the evening. There is a £2 entry fee but the entertainment and banter is well worth it. I would recommend the fish... More

We go here every time we are in Blackpool. Ignore the title gay bar as everyone is made to feel welcome.. Staff are always friendly. DJ Carmen is a total star, playing a wide range of music to suit all ages and her wicked sense of humour keeps everyone laughing. I would highly recommend a visit

If you've enjoyed your evening in funny girls then don't let the night end get free access (sometimes) to its great sister club and dance the night away to more cheesy dance tunes x def recommend x x
