The flying handbag is a brilliant venue for meeting up with friends and more, with the staff who have a smile on their face, cheap drinks don't knock it until you've tried it.

Tried out this place on my recent trip to Blackpool and I wouldn't rave about it at all. Very expensive drinks, place looks tired and the toilets were disgusting. Didn't stay long and wouldn't really recommend.
