Located on the 50-yard line of the Las Vegas Strip in the prime space formerly occupied by Hyde, Bellagio (bellagio.mgmresorts.com) has unveiled The Mayfair Supper Club, an exciting immersive concept that hearkens back to the glamour days of the 1920s and 1930s with modern, sultry surprises. “MGM is on the cutting edge of all things—around the globe and especially in Las Vegas,” says MGM Resorts President of Events and Nightlife Sean Christie. “My sliver of that is related to our overall narrative of entertaining the human race.” To accomplish that goal at The Mayfair, Bellagio has tapped No Ceilings Entertainment to conceptualize a multiact production that will morph as the night progresses. “The vision for The Mayfair allows us to break the mold for what’s been done in Las Vegas before,” says Dennis Jauch, co-founder of No Ceilings. The company has assembled a creative dream team that includes choreographer Dana Foglia (who has worked with superstars Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey); costume designer Charlie Le Mindu; musical director Jean-Francois Thibeault; makeup director Romero Jennings (who is also the director of makeup for MAC Cosmetics); and script writers Nicky and Laetitia Dewhurst. “Combining their brilliant minds with Bellagio’s world-class culinary team and the iconic backdrop of the Fountains will deliver an experience we believe will change the way people spend a night out in Las Vegas,” says Christie.
Though the experience varies by night, an evening at the new supper club may begin with “Cavi-Hour,” a first-of-its-kind happy hour that romances guests with caviar specials while a pianist sets an elegant tone. Once the cocktails settle in, vocalists take center stage with a multipiece band and dazzling costumes. Afterward, the night heats up as every singer, dancer, bartender and waiter surprises guests with a boundary-breaking production that includes a 360-degree lightshow. Weekends layer in Mayfair After Dark, which offers a late-night dinner menu amid DJ beats, live musical acts and sexy routines aimed to engulf the senses. The vibe transforms again on Sundays, where the venue transforms into a jazz club featuring music from the Great American Songbook and contemporary American classic cuisine. Christie says, “No matter what time a guest joins us, they’ll be treated to a unique dining experience filled with spectacular moments.”
