I went here with a few friends (guys and girls) last weekend. It was really awful unless you're over 50! It was full of drunk, middle aged (and older!) men and women. We were all early 30s and felt very strange in this place. The music wasn't all that 70s/80s focused and it had a fairly unpleasant atmosphere. It took... More

I can't fault Flares at all... Reasonable cover charge, cheap drinks and great music. Lots of fun had by my whole party of 16.

Firstly it was so busy you could barley make it to the bar or even walk though the bar or even dance. Got us really frustrated the amount of times people walked into us! It was a good 20 minute wait at the bar! You had sobered up when him got served! There was also no air com as soon... More

I used to really enjoy going for a dance in Flares due to the genre of music played, the majority being 70's. However last night about 75% of the music was 90's. So if you are looking for a cheesy 90's bar this is the place to go.....yet don't expect much 70's or 80's on Saturday night.

Just the place to let your hair down and people watch. Good dance music, friendly staff and the place to be to finish the night off. Door fee weekends. Bearing in mind after reading other people's comments, the place starts out clean but obviously there is no accounting for client's bad cleanliness!

Totally stinking, not clean ,no attendant in ladies only in mens. I think there was just about as many toilets in the ladies without a... More

You can dance all night to tacky 70's and 80's music and you always get a dance! Unfortunately the glass dance floor is very slippery and several girls fell on it. People are allowed to take drink onto the dance floor which never used to happen. This is disasterous as it get spilt and the floor then becomes wet and... More
