We had a drink in here twice while on holiday in Blackpool. From the outside it looks like a decent big bar and on entering big inside too.

Had a few brilliant nights out here in 2015 and had a brilliant time. Carmel the drag DJ is brilliant and friendly. The shows they put on are good and the prices at the bar are cheap enough. Not far from Blackpool North station.

Hi dropped by for a drink on New Year's Day for a drink - tables dirty, toilets absolutely vile with urine and faeces all over the floor broken door locks and no working hand dryer - very disappointing - fairly busy so obviously gay men are not that fastidious 😏

Why do I have pay £2.00 entry to a bar I think it's insultive and rude considering the state of the place. Drinks are over priced and place needs a major reforb and clean... More
