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 Hotels or Guest
Houses with their late-night Bars in which to stay and make new
friends. Your only problem may be getting everything in (!) if you're
only here on a short break. 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 that there is nothing here for the more reserved kind of
person. The bars are much quieter (in all senses) during the day even
though they may still have entertainment and cheap drinks on offer.
Many of the gay hotels and guest houses have their own comfortable
licensed bars where people can relax and read, chat, make new friends,
or watch television at their leisure.
We list all the main gay scene entertainment venues, including: Mardi Gras, Flamingo,
Flying Handbag, Peek-A-Booze, Lucy's 2 @ Tobago, Roxy's, Funny Girls, Kaos,
Galleon Bar, Taboo, Churchill's, and the New Road Inn, plus of course the Acqua,
the Liquid, 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 own 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 2 pages of gay and gay-friendly hotels.
