Welcome to Galleon Bar Blackpool

Our Story

The Galleon Bar is Blackpool’s favourite retro music bar.
It’s the kind of gem you would ordinarily find tucked away in the back streets of any cultural city.

Over both floors, can be found a plethora of music and retro memorabilia.
Where else could you find a traditional telephone box, Beatles gallery, authentic 19th-century church pews and a Doctor Who tardis? We also have an impressive collection of bespoke neon signage and a ‘Stairway to Heaven’ recognising music legends over the past 50 years.

The Galleon operates as an attitude-free zone venue and is to promote equality and diversity.
