Welcome to
The Galleon

LIVE MUSIC IN THE HEART OF BLACKPOOL SINCE 1954.

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.

"The Galleon is the finest decorated music bar I have seen in Europe"

History of The Galleon

1954

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.

2010

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.

2017

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!
