A little bit of Blackpool is being exported to the Spanish resort of Magaluf.
Ma Kelly’s cabaret bar chain, which has four venues in the Blackpool area, is set to open a new nightspot on the island on May 1.
Owners Paul and Paula Kelly decided that the concept had been so successful in Blackpool they would export it to a foreign resort.
The company has already opened Ma Kelly’s venues at Lytham Road, Foxhall Road and Talbot Road in Blackpool, and at London Street in Fleetwood.
All of the bars offer non-stop free cabaret from 1pm to 3am every day of the year – a recipe that has proved highly lucrative for the company.
Mick Sugden, manager of the Ma Kelly’s venues, said: “We have bought a bar in Magaluf, called The Fountain, and we are transforming it into a Ma Kelly’s venue.
“We’ve invested a large amount of money in the Magaluf bar. I’ve just been out there and everybody is talking about it.
“They are looking forward to experiencing great Blackpool-style cabaret shows.
“It’s being done out in Ma Kelly’s colours – black and red. It will have Las Vegas-style signs and the entertainment will all be free. It will be something completely new for Magaluf. People like our bars because they are very safe.”
Mick, who has run pubs and bars in Blackpool for 21 years, said acts from the resort will be flying out to Magaluf to perform for the tourists.
He added: “It will be Benidorm next!”
