outside Black ChickenMention karaoke and Benidorm in the same sentence and the one place that instantly springs to mind is the “Black Chicken”! It was Benidorm’s very first and original karaoke bar and its reputation is unparalleled to any other bar here. If you want the Ritz then it’s definitely not for you. But if you are after FUN – in capitals, a fun boisterous atmosphere, affordable prices, honest staff and a DJ that knows how to get the place buzzing, then pay a visit.

LogoI’d read many reviews, of varying degrees on this legendary bar but had never actually been so went with trepidation and was somewhat disappointed. I was expecting it to live up to the many comments posted on social media of a dirty dump and for the soles of my dainty sandals to stick to the floor - but was left saddened that neither of these often touted phrases when referring to the place were true! Personally I am not a karaoke fan but know many that are and for those, the Black Chicken is almost a right of passage when here.


Owner AlisonThe owner is Alison and has been for the last 9 years – having taken over the business from her father “Billy T” and certainly NOT Daniella Westbrook as has frequently appeared on social media! It is the first and original karaoke bar here in the resort and its popularity certainly confirms that, being open 365 days of the year.

Black Chicken teamAlison has recently had their logo redesigned, by local celebrity ‘Flash Harry’ and die-hard fans can even take home a souvenir of the place – beer mats, t-shirts etc to remind them of their visit. The very reasonable prices keeps punters coming back and the alco slush machine is definitely a draw for the ladies.. but it's the fantastic team which most appreciate.


DJ NeilAlison has lived here in Benidorm for around 18 years and nothing pleases her more than witnessing people enjoying themselves. In charge of that is Neil - DJ extraordinaire who has been at the Black Chicken for 3 years. Originally from Wolverhampton, where he was a nightclub DJ he started here in Benidorm at what was the Star & Garter. His original plan was to move over to Majorca but fortunately their loss is Benidorm’s gain and he spins the decks, getting the party atmosphere going from 2pm until 7pm, with karaoke until 2am, when the bar eventually closes.

party time at Balck ChickenYou can also catch him on Fresh Radio Spain every weekend from 8am until 11am. The Chicken has just had its 3rd renovation within the last 12 months – it is certainly a challenge to mop up every time an over enthusiastic reveler spills their drink so versatility dictates that plush velour upholstery would not realistically be very practical! But in addition to locals and holidaymakers, the venue also has its fair share of famous faces.

Comedienne/actress Chrissy Rock, Daniella Westbrook, Alice Barry from Shameless, Reality star Imogen Townley have all passed through the hollowed doors and Alison’s great friend, celebrity blogger Ryan Mira keeps them coming. So who knows who’ll you end up sharing a duet with…

News Snippets

  • Olive Oil +

    Prices of olive oil are expected to rocket as crops in Italy and Greece have been hit by bad weather. In some areas harvests are down by 60% and subsequently, wholesale prices have doubled from €3,000 to €6,000 a ton! But the saving grace may be Spain, where they had a bumper olive harvest...
  • That's crackers! +

    The Royal Mint are launching a gift range which will include 58 select items, one of which is a 'gold' six pack of Christmas crackers costing £5,000! But obviously for that price you are getting slightly more than a paper hat and plastic spinning top - you may be lucky to pull open a 1oz gold bar, 24 carat bullion coin or even an 18 carat gold diamond necklace!
  • End of the road +

    The last Ford Mondeo is expected to roll off the production line by 2020. The popular family car was launched in 1993 and was the epitome of the middle classes - with nearly 130K sold in the first year. Last year only 55K were sold across the whole of Europe hence the decision to stop production. But Ford takes the top slot for the UK's best selling car - with the Fiesta and in 4th place, the Focus model.
  • DIY closures +

    DIY store Homebase is set to close approximately 60 stores over the next few weeks, threatening more than 1,000 jobs. The chain currently has 250 UK stores, employing around 12,000 staff.
  • Chewing gum +

    A estimated £60 million a year is spent cleaning chewing gum off pavements - a startling amount. More than 100,000 tons are consumed every year, but many have no idea that it contains plastic. Now supermarket chain Iceland have developed a a new product called 'Simply Gum' - which is made from a sap called chicle, extracted from a tree native to Central America.
  • Powder ban +

    The Government are considering restricting air passengers on carrying powders in hand luggage under a new security clampdown. Baby powder, cosmetics and coffee may be limited to no more than 12 ounces. Australia, New Zealand and America have already introduced the restrictions.
