Let’s be realistic - we all know what to expect from sparkles - a fairly decent night out, good laughs, fairly decent booze and some daft comedy... My biggest gripe about this place is that they have a new drag queen - who’s been there...More

This place is very busy and you need to get there early, drinks are not extortionate and service is quick and friendly, the show was good but late, a good night to remember the holiday, worth a visit!

Children were there when we were there but I really don’t think the show is suitable for children. I definitely wouldn’t take any children!!
