Beach House Bistro & BarTom Grieve, Cinema Editor
Positioned right on the Promenade, directly in front of Blackpool Tower, you’ll find Beach House Bistro & Bar, a modern Mediterranean-style restaurant set up for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks.
The location is the obvious selling point here. Beach House Bistro & Bar is set right in the heart of the action, with gorgeous, dynamic views out over the Irish Sea, that make it the perfect spot for watching the sunset with a cool cocktail in your hand. The modern, glass fronted building makes the most of the site with a large terrace to the side for al-fresco dining, while retractable roofs at the front open things up further, elements permitting.

What sets the restaurant apart further is its emphasis on live entertainment. A carefully curated schedule of resident DJs, singers and live acts provide diners with Sunday afternoon acoustic sessions, Friday party anthems, soulful house music on Saturday nights and chillout electronica to end the week. Look out for scheduled special events that kick the beach party vibe up a notch.
So what about the food? As mentioned, there’s a Mediterranean feel here with pizzas and pastas joined by an expected, but welcome, emphasis on seafood. Indeed, seafood tagliatelle joins freshly caught galician steamed mussels, calamari, king prawns and baked whole sea bass. Meat lovers can choose from the likes of 28-day aged fillet steak, lamb kofte or a hearty pastrami burger, while vegetarians can enjoy pineapple rice, roasted red pepper cauliflower steak or a veggie wrap.

To accompany your meal, you can order from the regular bar menu, or an extensive list of wine and champagne. We think that a cocktail is the better option here though, and a selection of classic serves are joined by Beach House signature concoctions. Pick from the refreshing gin-based Pink Flamingo, a cooling watermelon and prosecco Mermaid Off Duty, or an eye-catching Cotton Candy. Non-drinkers don’t have to miss out either — a range of virgin mixes are available from the mocktail menu.
