The Cabinet of Curiosities and The Lock, a new immersive bar and bespoke speakeasy concept by Imagine Exhibitions is now open
Guests will delight in a curated collection designed to spark curiosity featuring exceptional libations with the option to find their way to the hidden speakeasy
As immersive realities expand, get ready to be transported into a drinking experience like none other with the opening of The Cabinet of Curiosities and The Lock by Imagine Exhibitions. Centrally located on the famed Las Vegas Strip inside the lower level of Bally’s Las Vegas, The Cabinet of Curiosities transports guests into a world of curiosity, dreams, and memory with wonders from near and far that weave together a unique experience with inspired craft cocktails to enjoy. Beyond the Cabinet, guests may encounter The Lock, an intimate speakeasy guarded by The Locksmith, where guests must solve a riddle to gain entrance where they’ll enjoy bespoke prohibition-era craft cocktails.
“I’ve always loved to travel and bring my experiences to reality through our exhibitions from the true-to-life to the fantastical,” said Imagine Exhibitions President and CEO Tom Zaller. “One of my favorite activities has been learning the stories of fellow travelers that I’ve met over a drink, and the various oddities that I’ve collected along the way. I’m delighted to bring that to life in one place and where better than to launch that in Las Vegas. It could be just a pitstop along the way to one of our nearby exhibits, or a place where guests can sit and enjoy the offerings the lounge and speakeasy provides.”
The Cabinet of Curiosities is a veritable treasure trove of stories and experiences that unfolds wonders through oddities that tell a tale unbeknownst to the common man. As one explores The Cabinet, they may find a bedazzled skullcap with antlers, or stumble upon a portable typewriter by Remington whose lore claims that any tale composed on it will make its author illustriously famous as well as immeasurably wealthy (with some caveats, of course). To discover new wonders, visitors can use QR codes that will weave together a narrative unique to their experience. The stories extend to the bar where guests can enjoy creative cocktails with a twist, such as “The Curious Cosmopolitan” or the “Bedazzled Skullcap Mojito.”
Beyond the wonders of The Cabinet of Curiosities lies The Lock, an intimate speakeasy with a secret entrance disguised as a vault. First, a visitor must find The Locksmith to enter the Safe Room, where the visitors must solve one of two hidden puzzles to gain entrance to The Lock. When inside, guests can relax with triumph in finding this hidden gem and imbibe in one of the story-driven, Prohibition-era craft cocktails, or they can continue their journey and have expert mixologists concoct a drink that matches guests’ personality, mood, and flavor profile.
“We’re thrilled to once again work with Imagine Exhibitions on another project,” said Jason Gregorec, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the resort. “These two concepts both complement their existing exhibitions on our lower level and are the perfect addition to the property’s landscape as we transition to the Horseshoe.”
Now open, The Cabinet of Curiosities and The Lock are located inside Bally’s Las Vegas lower level, adjacent to two of Imagine Exhibitions noteworthy exhibitions, the newly opened National Geographic’s Rarely Seen and the popular REAL BODIES at Bally’s exhibit. Both The Cabinet and The Lock open at 4 p.m. daily.
