An ecstatic VIP audience of celebrities and special guests packed the iconic Cleopatra’s Barge at Caesars Palace on Dec. 13 during the red-carpet, invitation-only grand opening party of “The Cocktail Cabaret,” a new live musical classic Vegas show.

“The Cocktail Cabaret” is an upbeat, stylish, intimate musical cabaret-style revue, reminiscent of vintage Vegas, designed to enhance the cocktail hour experience as a prelude to dinner, the theatre, special event or fun night on the town. With seating for 140 in Cleopatra’s Barge, this 70-minute show features a combination of original music and well-known stylized and re-imagined modern standards.

Four of the best and most exciting musical performers in Las Vegas, many with numerous Broadway credits and growing local, national and international fan bases, perform a variety of songs including such hits as “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” “Viva Las Vegas,” “Diamonds Are Forever,” “That’s Life,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” a cocktail medley, a tribute to the blues and many more.
