Apple & Parrot @ The Star, Blackpool Pleasure Beach
« on: July 15, 2014, 08:47:06 PM »
Great to see that The Star has been given a new lease of life.

Now primarily a live music bar it looks to be quite a success going by the photos on the pub's Facebook page.

Should bring some much needed new footfall to the South End of the Promenade  :thumbup:

I used to love my trips to The Star and was absolutely gutted when the decision to close it was taken. I never really did understand the logic in closing the South Entrance of the park. The damage that's now been done to that end of Ocean Boulevard would seem to suggest it was a daft thing to do too.

Hopefully this development might mean that more life starts to appear in Ocean Boulevard again as always feel that it's got the potential to be something special (i.e. better than "restaurants" like Mr Chippy and Kickin' Chicken lol).

Heaven is

I actually went past tonight Dave, all the external lights of the Pleasure Beach were illuminated, the pub was open and it seemed very active..

Maybe a bit of re-branding was required, it looks superb.. :tongue_smilie:
