Best new Strip show: Absinthe
Thu, May 26, 2011 (midnight)
This production is derived from century-old circus acts infused with a large measure of quirky raunch and staged in a tightly seated, in-the-round Spiegeltent. Acts include a low-strung high-wire act and a roller-skating duo that almost literally knocks you out of your seat. At Caesars Palace. Tue., Thur.-Sat., 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.; Wed. and Sun., 7:30 p.m. (dark Mon.). $69, $99 VIP seating. 800-745-3000.
Transport yourself to the opulent and excessive Roman Empire at Caesars Palace. But the ever-changing Caesars Palace is far from ancient. The hotel and casino is constantly raising the bar for what visitors can expect in a Vegas resort experience.
Caesars Palace features 3,348 rooms and suites in five towers, including the new luxury boutique Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, which opened Feb. 4, 2013, in the totally remodeled Centurian Tower. Caesars features 129,000 square feet of gaming space, including the Strip’s largest poker room and a 250-seat sports book. Other amenities include about two dozen restaurants, a four-level shopping mall, four pools, a spa, Pure and Poetry nightclubs and Pussycat Dolls.
Dining options include restaurants from world-renown chefs Guy Savoy, Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay and, on Feb. 4, 2013, Nobu Matsuhisa.
You never know what characters you’ll run into at Caesars with regular performers like Jerry Seinfeld, Bette Midler, Elton John and maybe even the emperor himself.
