Peek-a-Booze Cabaret Bar & Hotel
Craig & Alec Coleman have been together for over 22 years and working in the hospitality trade for most of that time. Upon moving to, and settling in Blackpool Craig & Alec brought their first hotel and never looked back, during this time Craig also resurrected his stage drag Alter ego, Cybil DuVaux and starting fronting a brand new bar/ hotel, which just four years ago they purchased off the original owner and ‘ Cybil DuViax’s Peek-a-Booze’ was born. Since then, the venue has gone from strength to strength.
Craig & Alec have always taken an active role in their local LGBT community and been involved in many fund-raising schemes, including Blackpool pride, cancer research & MacMillan. In fact for the last 2 years, Craig (as Cybil DuVuax) has been an onstage co-host to The James Bulger fundraiser that has been held in Blackpool working alongside charity ambassadors Reece Ryan & Liam Halewood. March 2018, with the relaunch of the refurbished bar area and that start of the new Blackpool summer season Craig & Alec have decided to support The James Bulger trust as their chosen charity.
Craig & Alec have also hosted their own fund raiser and been implemental in helping to organise two fund raisers in Blackpool, the spring show, at their own venue and the winter show which will be held at another major Blackpool hotel in November.
