Went as part of a group of 8. Pleasant enough place but over £4 a pint served in a plastic glass as well as having to pay an entrance fee was very poor. Won't be rushing back.

Lovely roof terrace. Very busy, but great fun. Good vantage point for watching the shows at pride. However, appalling toilets.

Can’t beat going to the flying handbag, fantastic atmosphere, good looking male bar staff, music and the entertainment are out of this world. Special prices for drinks too. Always visit here whenever I go to Blackpool.
