Roll up, roll up for a night at Albus Wolfgang’s Spectaculum – a brand new circus that’s strictly for the big kids at heart!
A few weeks ago I was invited to the official launch of Spectaculum, a new circus themed bar from the crazy minds behind Ghetto Golf. Located in what was once the outdoor space for Birdies Bar and BBQ, in a big top style tent are retro fun fair games, candy floss machines and delicious cocktails.
Stepping inside is like travelling back in time. It’s free to go in and take a look around and the various vintage games cost a few pound each to play. My friends and I had so much fun playing Higher or Lower, Ring Toss, Hook-a-duck and Skee Ball. Depending on how well you did, you won tokens which you could save up and redeem at the end of the night at the prize both. Prizes range from balloons, key rings to actual dildos… Can you see why it’s adults only?!
There was plenty of food on offer too from neighbouring Apocalypse Cow. I’m talking mini sliders, mac and cheese croquettes, hot toffee popcorn and apple flavoured candy floss – it was heavenly!
Open Thursday to Sunday and sticking around till the New Year, Spectaculum is well worth a visit, especially for a Christmas night out. Find out more here: www.spectaculumliverpool.co.uk
