|| From traditional English
pubs to stylish wine bars on the seafront, Blackpool has a varied
choice of bars to ensure your night out is one to remember.
Most of the pre-club drinking goes on in venues along the Promenade
or in the centrally located Market Street [map]
area of town.
For a start there’s the hugely popular Boardwalk [map]
on Central Promenade, which has a lively atmosphere, good
drinks promotions and with the coolest DJs to make any night go with
a bang. The bar is open until 2am at weekends.
Also situated on the Promenade is Nellie Deans [map],
a late licensed fun pub with cabaret and karaoke entertainment
every night weekend. Open until 1am on Friday and Saturdays.
If you’re looking a chic drinking hole then head to Arriba
on the Prom, a stylish Mediterranean-themed bar with a
friendly and warm atmosphere.

opt for the legendary The Bier Keller [map],
which is one of Blackpool's longest established pubs.
Heading towards South Promenade near Blackpool Pleasure Beach, you’ll
come across plenty more fun pubs, including the Dutton Arms
that caters for the stag and hen party market.

others, the ultra-trendy N.T.K. bar [map],
which stays open until the early hours and was presented with the
