Why is Tiger Tiger closing?
In November last year the news broke that the Deltic Group had purchased the Portsmouth club as well as those in Newcastle and Manchester from its owner Novus Leisure it said that the venue would relaunch with a ‘new concept’ in 2019.
Tiger Tiger’s new owner also owns PRYZM in the city centre.
Speaking in November the company’s Chief Executive, Peter Marks, laid out the vision for the future of the venues.
He said: ‘We’re delighted with this acquisition.
‘Located in dynamic, vibrant cities, each of these sites perfectly complements our existing portfolio, such as our successful PRYZM Portsmouth club, 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.'
