Empire Bingo Blackpool


This club is now closed, however, the information will stay up for historical purposes.

Empire Bingo is located in the Hawes Side area of Blackpool, a good mile or so from the centre of Blackpool. It is more of a social club than a national chain bingo hall and it remains popular with the locals for this very reason to the day. Taking residence in the old Empire Cinema which dates back as far as 1929 (and closed in 1959) the bingo and social club has a very local feel to it and is welcoming of all new players.

There is a small car park for visitors and you will also find excellent bus links on Hawes Side Lane (B5261) with a stop right outside the club at Powell Avenue. Bus routes 17, 401 and 688 all service the area frequently. For those driving there is additional street parking should the car park become full.

There is an arcade area to complement the daily bingo games and you will find these quite well used and full of the latest and greatest slot machines. The bingo hall is spacious and comfortable and is a refreshing change from the bright lights and carpets of Gala and Mecca clubs with a working man’s club feel.

The drinks and food are of good quality and are cheaply priced in comparison to most bingo halls. The price of bingo is also relatively cheap – so check out the prices section for more on that.

The Twitter page is pretty much non-existent in terms of use but the Facebook page is updated quite often and is a good way of staying in touch with the latest promotions and latest news.
