“Sparkling show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

If you are after a fun night with a shoe you can guarantee a laugh or two at sparkles
The artists are great but some of the acts missed the mark mainly the cobbled together from tv shows
Would have been better if they had actually copied rather than mimed. Needed spontaneity
The live singing was amazing and the singing mimes were fabulous
Expect great costumes with most of the show pieces hitting the mark
The drinks are reasonably priced with excellent bar staff.
Thank you Tony

“Lively entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Visited GC for 11 nights in August with another couple. Nightlife on GC is a little on the non event scale so we were delighted we found Sparkles early in the holiday as we did return to enjoy other shows and were delighted they changed the show so you were not seeing the same thing. The bar and waiting staff are excellent and the service is fabulous as the staff really value their customers. Surprised to see families there with children despite the warning from the compere, makes it awkward for others to join in the adult humour with young chikdren sitting next to you. A must place to visit!

“Amazeballs!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Went on holiday to gran canaria for 7 nights and was in sparkles 6 out of 7 nights!! Sparkles was amazing the staff are so friendly and welcoming and work really hard!! Sparkles made are holiday and the laughs we had with them all was brilliant!! We're back home now and don't want to go a drag bar in England as it will never live up to sparkles and we'll only be disappointed!! Advise anyone who goes on holiday here to visit at least once! Lots of love to all you guys, miss you all already! See you next year :) Love Kerry Heath and Gemma Williams xxxxxxxxx

“Awesome entertainment!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

We only came down for one night but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! We sat outside for a while as it was so busy but the staff asked if we wanted to come inside and they found us a place to sit. They were all very friendly and the entertainment was excellent (from the drag queens, not the Spanish dancers). Cocktails were delicious and a good price too. Excellent service too! My partner even got pulled up on stage which was funny! We will definitely return here if we come back to GC!

*Not ideal for kiddies!*

“FABULOUS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely amazing place. Everyone is so lovely - staff and drag queens. Drinks are amazing and are a good price. Due to being in a large party, they reserved the front row tables for us every night which was very good of them. By the end of the week we a felt like we was part of a family and found ourselves having drinks with the staff after closing in another bar. None of us wanted to go home and will definitely be back soon for more Sparkles cocktail jugs and top rate entertainment. Thank you all. As for all the negative comments, all I got to say is... 1, 2, 3... VILE! Xx love from Manchester xX
