Lie. is a modern twist on clubs of the night—a truly communal venue, where the experience lies not only with the power of production, but within the excitement of improvisation. The result is an entirely new genre that blurs the lines between restaurant, bar, club and live entertainment to create a grand social experiment; one that uniquely arrives in spontaneous moments throughout the evening. This new venue delivers an unexpected mash-up featuring world-class partner Coastal Luxury Management, curating food and beverage, and entertainment partner Spiegelworld, creators of Vegas Nocturne. Here, precedents are cast aside as clever theatrics meet world music collaborations, exclusive vintages make their debut and a global repertoire of small and large plates invite a social feast. An ever-evolving experience, Rose. Rabbit. Lie. adheres to no standard model, follows no written rules. Come when you want. Leave when you wish. Let the night take the lead. Guests must be 21 years of age or older.
Wednesday – Saturday
7:30 p.m., 9:30 p.m., Midnight (Nightlife)
Vegas Nocturne, the anchor live entertainment at Rose. Rabbit. Lie., brings together an ensemble cast of the best talent the world has to offer. Elusive, intriguing and unexpected, the show experiences unfold over the course of the evening. Vegas Nocturne does not live on a stage or with the rise and fall of a curtain. Rather, it is woven through the guest’s entire experience, a unique balance of choreographed and unscripted dramatics deeply ingrained with live, unconventional music that leads watchers on a new journey through each scene. Concepted and created by Spiegelworld, Vegas Nocturne arrives nightly in three distinct shows: 7:30 p.m., 9:30 p.m. and Midnight (Nightlife) – each unique high points in a story whose plot coyly evolves, twisting and turning with the passing hour. Guests can purchase tickets in advance for the 7:30 p.m., 9:30 p.m. and Midnight shows; however, there will be moments of alluring spectacle taking place throughout the venue all night.
Reserve seating tickets start at $75 for 7:30 and 9:30 p.m., $30 for Midnight (Nightlife)
