We had not one but two fantastic nights here, one after the other. The DJ was hilarious and went out of her way to accommodate us. Great fun and a must after Funny Girls. Lovely staff and amazing atmosphere.

Went into the bag over Blackpool Pride wknd and it was disgusting. The toilets were flooded for the 4hrs we were there, no loo roll, sinks were over flowing and the smell was horrid. It was that bad that we went out down to kaos to use their loos!! Very disappointing and gave the blackpool gay scene a very dirty... More
