The Spiegeltents, both rare and exquisite, represent masterful craftsmanship by Flemish artisans in the early 1920s. These alluring “halls of mirrors” are a dwindling treasure, with only a limited number remaining globally, each possessing its unique character and allure. Constructed from oak and graced with teak baroque dance floors, they are adorned with opulent velvet and brocade canopies, elegant beveled mirror columns, and stained glass windows. These circular venues boast intimate booths, ornate bars, and Art Nouveau chandeliers.
