AstaBGay - The Blackpool Gay Directory:
It's all here in
Blackpool, from the tacky (and don't we all enjoy a bit of tacky now
and then?) to the tasteful, with no shortage of Gay owned and
Gay-friendly Hotels and Guest
Houses with their late-night Bars in which to stay and make new
friends. If you're only here on a short break, you may have a problem getting everything in
(Whoops!), but you'll have fun trying.
Blackpool's large and excellent Gay Scene caters mainly for fun-loving
people. Drink, dance, and sex is very much the order of the day -
every day. The Gay Scene here is not dependent on the weather,
although the wallpaper is always best in the summer. However, that is
not to say there is nothing here for the more reserved kind of
person. The bars are much quieter during the day even
though they may still have entertainment and cheap drinks on offer.
Many of the gay and gay friendly hotels and guest houses have their own comfortable
bars where people can relax, make new friends,
or watch television at their leisure.
We list the main gay and gay-friendly entertainment venues, including:
Stillies Showbar, Flamingo, Flying Handbag, Peek-A-Booze, Roxy's, Funny Girls, Kaos,
Kings, Galleon Bar, Viva and Churchill's, plus of course the Acqua,
and the Wet Wet Wet saunas. There are short
descriptions of what to expect at each of the gay pubs and clubs, also
a link to its web site if it has one. The
Blackpool Gay Scene Map
opens in a new window so you may refer to it easily. And don't forget
to check out our page of gay and gay-friendly hotels.
