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.
The Smith Center is delighted to welcome one of New York’s most dynamic vocalists, Jane Monheit accompanied by pianist Michael Kanan in a special duo performance. Audiences will be delighted by this traditional jazz piano program with some lovely cabaret moments featuring hits from Jane Monheit’s recordings including her current release, The Heart of the Matter.
