Flamboyant singer-songwriter Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish are to open a Champagne bar in Sin City. As reported on db.com, Fizz Las Vegas is set to open in October inside Caesar’s Palace next to the hotel’s renowned Colosseum theatre. The 2,750-square-foot bar is a $3.2m collaboration between John, Furnish and nightlife operators Michael Greco and Steven Kennedy of Marvel Management and Marketing.
With Champagne-coloured interiors, low-hung chandeliers and photographs from the couple’s personal collection, Fizz will serve Grandes Marques Champagne by the glass, Champagne cocktails and a small plates menu including caviar and charcuterie. Designed by TAL Studio, the bar aims to lure Colosseum theatregoers pre and post performance
"Fizz is an extension of our personal style. Spending so much time in Las Vegas with Elton's performance schedule, we wanted a space that would reflect our personal style and become an extension of the way we entertain at home,” said Furnish. Despite Elton John’s glam rock roots, the music at Fizz will have more of a house feel.
While the Vegas strip already boasts two Champagne bars – Laguna at Palazzo and Napoleon’s at Paris, Fizz is the first celebrity-backed venture. The newest addition to Caesar’s Palace is the 181-room Nobu Hotel. The first hotel from Nobu Matsuhisa’s restaurant group, actor Robert de Niro is one of the key shareholders in the project.
