Nightlife venues on the market in Blackpool

Marketing / 13 Apr, 19

We have the pleasure of bringing to the market a well-established and nationally renowned cabaret bar, nightclub and leisure venue situated over three locations in the heart of Blackpool.

Funny Girls is a popular cabaret venue located in the historic Grade II listed former Odeon Cinema, occupying a prominent location on Dickson Road. At approximately 53,000 sq ft the art deco property includes an extensive seating and bar area, along with a separate 100 cover restaurant.

Built in 1939 the cinema has been significantly redeveloped and sub-divided to create a number of unique spaces under one roof. The largest of these is Flamingo Nightclub which situated over three levels. The club is accessed from Queen Street and licensed to operate between the hours of 10:30am to 05:00am, Sunday to Friday and 10:00am to 06:00am on Saturday.

On the first floor is a second bar, Buzz Bar, which can be accessed from Dickson Road. We understand there is a separate bar on the top floor of Flamingo, historically called Fruit, and the bar is no longer in use.

Located to the rear of the property is the more recently developed Flying Handbag pub, beer garden and kitchen which extends to 4,217 sq ft.

Above the Flying Handbag are the group’s offices. At just over 2,750 sq ft the offices provide a modern working environment, in good condition.

Further along Queen Street is The Whippet Inn, a multi-storey bar complete with a kitchen (currently unused) and outside balcony area on the first floor. The bar is licensed 11.00am to 4.00am, Monday to Saturday and 11.00am to 03.00am on Sundays, with a capacity of up to 570 customers.
