“Dancing blast”
Review of The Mardis Gras

The Mardis Gras
Ranked #34 of 99 Nightlife in Blackpool
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 May 2013

Great gay bar with a fabulous dance floor and entertainment. DJ Ginger plays some great tunes and the floor show was brilliant. Usually go on a Sunday afternoon but this week went on Friday night really enjoyed ourselves. Bar prices are reasonable and there's a nominal charge after 10pm on Friday, free Sunday afternoons - usually have a male stripper on so if you're easily offended then don't bother going but if you're not it's a fabulous way of spending a Sunday afternoon (especially if it's raining) Highly recommend

The Mardis Gras used to be amongst one of the best gay venues to attend during a visit to Blackpool but this is definitely no longer the case.

I went with my partner at the end of April and we arrived at around midnight to find the place devoid of both customers and atmosphere. We had a word with the barman who said it's been going down bank for quite some time, not helped by the fact that resident DJ 'Stella' is no longer in situ.

Considering you have to pay to get into this tired and dated venue, I'd save your money and just go somewhere else.

Or spend the money on the first bus out of Blackpool altogether.
