Paisley Photographs of the Idolize SpiegelTent – the perfect cabaret and music salon
European SpiegelTents are hand-hewn mirrored pavilions that have been used as traveling dance halls, bars and entertainment salons since the early 20th century. Built of wood, mirrors, canvas, leaded glass and detailed in velvet and brocade, every SpiegelTent brings its own personality to an event or performance.
Very few of these legendary ‘tents of mirrors’ still survive but one’s coming to Paisley. Our SpiegelTent, Idolize, is a baroque beauty who will grace County Square during The Spree and add her own charms to our music and comedy.
