Tiger Tiger, one of Newcastle’s most popular nightclubs, is set for a rebrand having been sold to the Deltic Group.
The nightclub on Newgate Street, opposite The Gate, has been a constant in Newcastle University students’ clubbing habits in recent years with some high-profile celebrity appearances bringing in huge crowds. Currently the host of Tiger Wednesdays, Newcastle’s sports night, the Tiger Tiger brand has clubs in cities across the United Kingdom including Manchester, Portsmouth and Cardiff.
The deal with Deltic Group sees the company reach a total of 55 clubs owned across the country, the fee for this latest acquisition still undisclosed. As the deal is completed in the coming weeks, exactly what the changes will mean to Tiger Tiger remain to be confirmed.
Peter Marks, chief executive of The Deltic Group was quoted in Chronical Live:
“We’re delighted with this acquisition. Located in dynamic, vibrant cities, each of these sites perfectly complements our existing portfolio, and will see us enter the Manchester and Newcastle markets for the first time. We look forward to welcoming the current Tiger Tiger teams to the Deltic family.
“Our intention is to trade seamlessly through until the summer next year, whereby each of these sites will be rebranded to a new concept that is currently under development. It will reinvigorate and modernise the very essence of the original Tiger Tiger vision, a multi-roomed, cross-occasion, food, drink and dancing all-day venue.”
Tiger Tiger boasts “seven spectacular party rooms”, including the likes of The Groovy Wonderland which plays music from the noughties and a karaoke room called Lucky Voice. The club is open on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, as well as being available to hire on other days.
