Cuisine Inspired from Supper Clubs of Eras Past Takes Center Stage at Bellagio's New Fountain-side Dining Concept
Boundary-breaking musical performances, towering seafood displays and the world's finest cuts of meat greet guests dining fountain-side at The Mayfair Supper Club, which opened at Bellagio Resort & Casino on New Year's Eve.
Captivating guests with live entertainment, surprise performances and a coveted location overlooking the iconic Bellagio Fountains, The Mayfair evolves from a swinging prohibition-era jazz club to a late-night dance party. Guests are transported to the glamorous supper club world of yesteryear when music and cuisine intertwined in an all-night destination.
Through a multi-act production by No Ceilings Entertainment and its creative team, The Mayfair defies typical dinner service with not only live music, but immersive, full-scale productions on stage and throughout the restaurant that make guests feel the show all around them.
"Supper clubs of the mid-1900s were the foundation for our country's best artists and cuisine, which The Mayfair celebrates and modernizes for the 20s of today," said MGM Resorts International President of Events and Nightlife Sean Christie. "Combined with spectacular entertainment overlooking unrivaled views of the Bellagio Fountains, The Mayfair delivers an experience that can't be found anywhere else in the world."
The stunning space by London and New York-based Martin Brudnizki Design Studios draws inspiration from the whirlwind glamour of old Vegas and Hollywood, and The Mayfair's waterfront locale. Guests are brought into a world inspired by mythology and tales of Neptune with elements such as a statement bar with a sea-green Murano glass canopy, coral-inspired wall lights, scalloped-edge banquettes, and a ceramic shell wall. Textures and colors are richly layered to create a decadent and sophisticated backdrop for an evening of dining and dancing.

The Mayfair's curtain call features whimsical delights and visual extravaganzas exemplified by The CIGAR, an edible chocolate and hazelnut cigar showpiece that arrives hickory-smoked under a glass cloche.
