The original Galleon Bar opened in 1954. This is one of Blackpool’s quirkiest and best-loved bars. It’s frequented by all age groups and promotes retro-chic and live music.
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.
Loved by Many
One of the most original places to go in Blackpool. This is the venue for live music, chilled out times and great drink offers. The eclectic mix of music memorabilia on the walls is amazing. You won’t be disappointed at the quality of live musicians that perform and jam in the evening. Don’t expect a DJ playing thumping dance tracks, just expect to hear quality live music.
My favourite bar in Blackpool. They play a great selection of music old and new. The bar is decorated with music memorabilia and has a fun feel. The downstairs toilet is a TARDIS which is wall papered with old issues of doctor who magazine. They run a day-long happy hour up until 10 pm for cheap drinks. We had Aspell cider for £2.99. The staff were friendly and attentive. Highly recommended.
Absolutely love this place. Will become my venue of choice from now on. ❤️
