Spanish City reopens in Whitley Bay in North Tyneside at the end of this month following completion of a £10milion refurbishment programme.
Spanish City first opened in 1910 on the north east coast resort as a concert hall, restaurant, roof garden and tearoom.
A ballroom was added in 1920. However, in recent years it had fallen into disrepair and has been closed for the last eighteen years.
Now a Grade II-listed building the new-look Spanish City will include a range of new leisure facilities including a fine dining restaurant, tearooms, events space and a champagne bar.
Events space in Spanish City will include the St Mary’s Lighthouse Suite.
St Mary’s Lighthouse Suite will link directly to both the mezzanine level of the dome and the Champagne Bar and will have views across the bay to the lighthouse itself. It will feature floor to ceiling windows and skylights.
St Mary’s Lighthouse Suite will accommodate up to 200 guests.
Alongside a main room, the Champagne Bar and surrounding balcony can be used as break out space and internal sliding walls ensure full flexibility.
Spanish City will have ample parking facilities, specialist AV equipment and access to wi-fi.
