The Palace - Based in the Palatine Building, on Central Promenade, the 3,000 capacity world-famous club was the largest in the North West during the ‘90s. The £2.2m club opened in October 1986, with a star-studded line-up, including then Eastenders actor Leslie Grantham, who famously played Dirty Den. One of Blackpool’s brightest nightspots during the 90s, the Palace boasted state-of-the-art impressive lighting and sound systems. After a revamp in 1994, the Golden Mile nightclub – built on a one-time roller skating rink – even featured an art deco American fuel pump in the middle of the dining area.
