Don't get me wrong, my partner and I are no snobs, far from it. But after visiting this Bar on our weekend in Blackpool, we decided that this was the last time we would do so. The bar is scruffy, dirty and long overdue for a makeover. But the final insult was being served our drinks in plastic glasses that... More

The only thing that saves this place is the drag and cabaret which are excellent. I understand that there is a water problem in Blackpool, but when you're charging over 4 quid a drink, it's unforgivable that they can't even buy a few bags of ice. It's not a cheap venue, but others nearby made an effort to buy some... More

I dont expect Blackpool town center pubs /clubs to be fancy. Thats a given. The Flying handbag certainly fits this description, filthy toilets and bar...however, its DJ and atmosphere are quite good, giving a fun night out for foreign and local visitors alike. BE WARNED, if you buy a drink towards the closing time(10 mins), when the bar is open,... More

Warm welcome by the staff. Amazing DJ Carmen who had the place in stitches from laughing and the night we visited there was a cabaret singer called Donna who was amazing also with a beautiful voice and stage presence. A wonderful evening spent with great entertainment and good drinks.
