Spiegelworld: The world's most beautiful traveling venueAugust 5, 2008 - by Ellis Whitman
Guests to the city looking for something truly special should make sure to visit Spiegelworld, which will be located at the South Street Seaport for 12 weeks until November 2. With its opulent decor of mirrors and brocade, the intimate 350-seat spiegeltent is the venue for two of the hottest shows in town, Absinthe and Desir (directed by the creative team behind Moulin Rouge), and this year they will bring you a second theatre complete with our late night extravaganza, Gazillionaire’s Late Night Lounge, and an incredible line-up of live music performances from around the world (including Steve Molitz, Jon Gutwillig, Michael Travis and Jason Hann; pop duo The Bird & The Bee; songwriter/activist/comedian Nellie McKay; and indie superstars Deerhoof).
While enjoying breathtaking views, visitors can sit back with a cocktail at sunset in Spiegelworld’s Green Fairy Garden, snuggle up in their full-service on-site restaurant, and after the show, dance under the stars to their eclectic DJ sessions, every Tuesday to Sunday night. Pier 17, South Street Seaport (South Street & Beekman Street), 212-279-4200; www.spiegelworld.com
