CTD Architectural Tiles raises the bar in Lancashire

  • 10 Aug 2022

Leading commercial tile supplier CTD Architectural Tiles has provided the perfect backdrop for enjoying cocktails both shaken and stirred in a new James Bond inspired bar and restaurant in Lancashire.

Located on Blackpool’s busy Central Promenade, the new Spyglass Bar boasts a luxurious interior that has been inspired by the decadence and drama of the popular movie franchise, with memorabilia on display and spy themed drinks on the menu.

The venue’s sumptuous interior design scheme features a palette of black and gold, with velvet and faux fur soft furnishings complementing the polished marble and terrazzo effect tiles on the floors and bar front.

The commercial tile package that CTD Architectural Tiles curated for owners and designers Coolsilk Property and Investment Ltd comprised an attractive mix of Delight Marquina Nero floor tiles and Mattisse Ocean polished tiles which have been used to create the stylish green marble tiled bar frontage.


Further interest has been created on the walls of the seating area with the specification of Habitat Cala Obsidian tiles. The attractive flooring design continues into the bathroom facilities, with the use of Venice Villa terrazzo effect porcelain tiles. Reflections White tiles have also been used to create an easy to maintain and clean looking finish in the kitchen and accessible toilet facilities.

As well as fulfilling the brief to achieve a classic and luxurious interior design, the commercial tile package also needed to meet stringent safety requirements to meet the demands of the heavy footfall the busy bar will attract.

Both the marble and terrazzo effect porcelain tiles used on the floor areas are non-slip with a PTV rating of 36 for slip resistance in wet conditions.


By working with many of the world’s leading commercial tile manufacturers, CTD Architectural Tiles has gone on to provide commercial tile packages for a number of projects in the hospitality, hotel, leisure sectors.

With an experienced and knowledgeable specification team, CTD Architectural Tiles is well placed to advise specifiers, designers and architects on how to effectively use tiles to create different design schemes that are easy to maintain, cost-effective and meet all the necessary health and safety requirements.
