This bar needs no introduction. Outrageous cabaret, cheap beer – how a gay bar should be!

You’ll find plenty of events taking place at Peek-a-Booze throughout the week, including karaoke and live DJs. The outdoor terrace is great in the summer.

Accommodation is also available here – give them a call for room availability and prices.

Gay-friendly pub in the heart of Blackpool, close to the gay district.

The old-fashioned frontage and welcoming bar staff (and patrons) make this a firm favorite with the gay community, often attracting older gay guys and girls.
