Cabaret Jazz is where an urban jazz club meets an elegant cabaret in a room made for live music. A little bit of Dizzy’s, a little bit of Feinstein’s and a lot of sophistication make’s this the nightclub for grown-ups in Las Vegas, and a place where artists want to perform. This two story venue has a view of downtown, and a mezzanine balcony for a truly unique view of the stage. Jazz and cabaret come together in Las Vegas at The Smith Center’s Cabaret Jazz. Patrons attending a performance at Cabaret Jazz can enjoy light-bites and beverages during the performance.
