The North West’s only Circus themed dinner show venue Circo is set to relocate to a new 7,000 sq. ft. property on Seel Street in Liverpool.
Curtains will close for the final time in The Albert Dock on November 5 when the venue, famous for its unique dining and leisure experience, will move into the Brockbank and Mellor building at 17-19 Seel Street for the ‘next chapter in its journey’.
Owner Jason McNeill said that it was an exciting time for all of the team and that the public should prepare themselves for something ‘that has never been seen before’.
He said: “The Dock has played home to Circo since 2007, but now it’s time for us to close the final curtain and move on. For us, there’s no better way to mark our ninth birthday, then to relocate to a new part of the city with an evolved concept that we believe doesn’t exist anywhere else in Liverpool; in fact, the UK.
“We have become famous for our dinner shows, which provide entertainment that really does push the boundaries and showcases some of the best talent around and we now want to take this successful model to the next level.”
Inspiration for the new concept has been drawn from other live performance nightlife hotspots all over Europe and as far as Mexico, including Coco Bongo and the infamous Cirque De Soleil. It will feature everything from dancers, trapeze acts, aerialist, acro artists, gymnastics, trampoline acts, fire artists plus much more.
Jason added: “When Circo first started, the show was completely different to anything around and it really did create many firsts. Over time, as we have developed our ideas, so have others and we really want to provide an experience that continues to position our brand as creative innovators and to consistently delight and surprise our customers.
“There is never a perfect time to move but we really wanted to start the New Year with our new venue. In the meantime, the team wanted to do something we’ve never done before and to end the year in a fun and alternative way while our new space gets completed.
“Between November 5 and unveiling the new Circo early 2017, we will open our very own pop up club in Hangar 34 within the Baltic Triangle, where our shows will continue. Our set designers are in there now alongside our kitchen team in order to prepare our events.
“We are not losing Circo or any of the much loved features that make it what it is – indeed it’s about the next chapter in our adventure and we can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
The new space, which has a capacity of 250 seated and an impressive 900 standing, will be unveiled early next year and will feature two dinner shows a week at 7pm, with doors opening for a nightclub with a difference at midnight.
