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.
When Ana Gasteyer steps up to the mic, she evokes the swagger of an era when a lady ruled a nightclub and an audience knew they were in for good time. The patter is real, the themes adult; the lyrics are timeless, and the music swings like crazy!
From songs like One Mint Julep and Proper Cup of Coffee to a surprisingly smooth rendition of Carrie Underwood’s Before He Cheats, Gasteyer’s saucy selections tell stories with humor, heartbreak…and just a little splash of soda.
