Any night out of season can be bleak in a seaside town like Blackpool. There are piers, a tower, boarded-up cafes and then, from out of the gloom, emerges blue. The ales look in good condition, which is more than can be said of some of the furniture.
Am I rambling? Maybe, but the Blue Room is about rambling: conversation, music, creatives, artists and photographers. The Blue Room is the oasis in our seaside town. Summer or winter, it’s a venue for all seasons.
The music policy is varied. There are old rockers, tribute bands, new bands, just about everything – which, I suppose, is what makes it so good and well worth a journey inland a few hundred metres.
Jimi Hendrix was thrown out for engaging in a herbal tobacco and Blackpool FC was founded there. Why the Blue Room? Answers on a postcard.
Some of the bands are amazing, some are really quite awful. Check it out, you might pick a good night (or even a whole weekend of music).
The Blue Room always has had balls and now they are on the pool tables.
