In a city where lounge acts are nearly extinct, a new pre-dinner show is reviving vintage Vegas in an ideal setting.
The four singers who belt out blasts from the past have plenty of street cred, including stints on Broadway for Niki Scalera and Eric Jordan Young. True to the tunes of happy hours from past decades, their 70-minute show includes songs such as “Bridge Over Trouble Water,” “That’s Life” and “Viva Las Vegas,” along with original music.
Tickets cost $55 plus fees. Guests must be at least 21 years old to enter.
Cleopatra’s Barge, which opened in 1970, is one of the handful of places along the Strip that have changed little over the decades. With its red and gold decor, the barge is modeled after the boats that transported Egyptian royalty along the Nile River during the time of Julius Caesar.
The lounge can hold up to 140 guests.
