Though the name might primarily conjure images of rock and the Pepsi Max ride at the Pleasure Beach, Blackpool has always been one of the UK’s favourite traditional holiday destinations. Though cheap European flights mean many Brits now holiday on the continent, Blackpool continues to move with the times.

The latest gift to the city is Bar 380, opening in the famous Blackpool Tower. Following the launch of the famous Blackpool Illuminations this September, The Blackpool Tower Eye is launching a pop-up bar for visitors to enjoy the impressive light display from the best height.

If you book your ticket for 3 or 4 September or any weeknight after 5 September, you’ll also be treated to a complimentary Tower Eye Illuminations Cocktail to enjoy with the view.

“Where better to enjoy fabulously lit up Blackpool at night than from the top of The Blackpool Tower? We look forward to welcoming visitors to our new bar which includes a stunning view and of course some delicious drinks,” says Kenny Mew, general manager of The Blackpool Tower. We think he’s got a point!
