Huge, unique ‘mirror’ tent will complement vibrant ‘Triangle Christmas nightlife
Party goers, thrill seekers and decadent adventurers. As if Liverpool’s night life scene couldn’t be more attractive then along comes Spiegeltent!
Literally translated as ‘mirror tent’ and originally created in the Flemish Region of Belgium in the late 19th century, Spiegeltents are hand-hewn pavilions known for their wild and decadent ambience and used for travelling dance halls, bars and bohemian entertainment salons. The magnificent round tent is made of dark wood with intricately carved panels, stained glass windows, bevel mirrors and an impressively draped ceiling.
“Its ornate beauty and mesmeric atmosphere make it a truly extraordinary venue for any event and Liverpool is going to love it!” said co-owner Steve Meadows, who along with Diana Smith is launching a special Christmas Spiegeltent in November later this year.
“The Spiegeltent continues a fine tradition with its exquisitely decorated performance space that is ideally suited to big parties, masquerade balls, live music shindigs and food-filled festive soirees. Christmas is huge for us and we think Liverpool will love what we’ve got to offer.”
The Spiegeltent will be located in the outdoor space adjacent to Baltic Market and just outside of Tusk Baltic in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle. Work will commence on siting the Spiegeltent on 25thNovember 2019 with the Grand Opening Party on 28th November featuring Benjamin Zephaniah.
Russell Gannon from Baltic Triangle also believes the Spiegeltent’s arrival will add something extra special to the area’s hugely popular nightlife scene.
“The owners of The Spiegeltent have sought out partnerships with venues in the area to ensure that their offer is a compliment to what’s already going on. They’ve made connections with key stakeholders and have already worked together to plan a Christmas season offer that will be unrivalled throughout the city.”
Co-owner Diana Smith added: “The Spiegeltent is a stunning, luxurious venue constructed from rich mahogany, dappled mirrors and stained glass with an incredible draped ceiling, circular dance floor and booth seating. Bringing the Spiegeltent to the Baltic Triangle… it’s the perfect location for music, wining, dining and entertainment and compliments the area’s visitor economy and all the wonderful happenings there.”
This is another boon to the Baltic Triangle which has developed into one of Liverpool’s most attraction leisure destinations and home to some of the best venues in the city. With Camp & Furnace, Baltic Market, Constellations already flourishing, insiders are saying the Spiegeltent will be a perfect addition to the area’s nightlife offer.
