Galleon Bar Blackpool
Welcome to Galleon Bar Blackpool
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.

History of the Galleon
The original Galleon Bar opened as a basement coffee bar on Adelaide Street.
A few years later it became established as a cocktail bar and restaurant with live music.
On 31st December 2010, The Galleon Bar was re-established at its current site on Abingdon Street. Over the past decade, we have proudly carried forward The Galleon legacy of promoting equality and live music.
By holding a Blackpool Jazz & Blues Festival for the incredible Trinity Hospice, we managed to raise a massive £11,985.54, which has helped the hospice to no end and provide much-needed support!
Whilst closed during the majority of 2020, we took the opportunity to get new signage up outside our Abingdon Street venue.
