Spiegeltents are exquisite travelling venues, known for their wild and decadent ambiance, attracting night owls, heartbreakers and dream chasers. We couldn’t think of a better venue for throwing Christmas parties, masquerade balls and great nights out….

The magnificent round tent is made of dark wood with intricately carved panels, stained glass windows, bevelled mirrors and an impressive draped ceiling. The boothed seating that lines the edges make way for a grand dance floor with an in-built stage and bar area. It is undoubtedly the finest party venue in town!

Literally translated as ‘mirror tent’, Spiegeltents were originally built in Belgium in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Designed as travelling ballrooms, the mirrors allowed discrete eye contact to be made across a crowded dance floor. Marlene Dietrich famously sung ‘Falling in Love Again’ in a Spiegeltent in Paris in the 1930’s and their innate beauty and romance have continued to attract artists who would normally perform in much larger venues.

Christmas at the Spiegeltent continues this fine tradition and is now considered an institution in Bristol’s festive calendar with legendary Christmas parties, live music, DJs, performance, theatre, masked balls, fine food and family events.

Here is some feedback from our guests:

“It was an absolutely brilliant evening.  We couldn’t fault anything.  From the moment we arrived, we were well looked after, the food was delicious, served piping hot and very tasty.  The cabaret was spectacular …the live band were our highlight, they certainly know how to party and entertain and the disco was an excellent mix of music.”
The event of the year! Superb service, venue, food and entertainment, in one incredible evening. We all absolutely loved it and have recommended it to everyone!

This was our fourth Christmas party at Spiegeltent and we’ve had a fabulous time every time. So entertaining and different each time. We’ll be back!

Amazing entertainment, lovely food, fast service, great music. Everything was perfect.”

Undoubtedly the best work Christmas event I have ever been to!

Fantastic – perfect environment for a relaxed but memorable company Christmas do without the ‘corporate’ feel – but still keeping it professional!

The entertainment was funny, clever, entertaining, awesome.


The Spiegeltent is lined with booths that seat 8 guests and the rest of the seating is at large round tables that accommodate between 8 and 12 guests. We will do our best to seat you in a specific place if requested but we can’t guarantee this as it will depend on the groups we need to accommodate that evening. Groups of less than 8 will need to share a booth / table and groups of 12 or more will either be seated at multiple tables or booths near to one another, or at tables pushed together. We thank you in advance for your understanding on this matter.


We require a 30% deposit of the overall cost of your booking to confirm your places and will expect the final payment along with your final numbers eight weeks before your Christmas Party. Please read our T&Cs before you book. Payment of the deposit will be taken as agreement to our T&Cs.
