Last night (May 1), television personality Holly Madison opened the doors to Las Vegas’ best kept secret, 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque inside Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. An exclusive grand opening party was held to reveal the glamorous, speakeasy style venue. Guests were transported to the Prohibition era, enjoying custom scratch cocktails and barrel-aged bourbon while listening to sweet sounds from jazz vocalist and resident ‘diva,’ Sky Dee Miles.
Throughout the evening, the beautiful dancers of Bourbon Burlesque tantalized guests with sensual burlesque vignettes and live cabaret entertainment. To cap off the night, Madison performed a seductive strip tease while singing a special rendition of Peggy Lee’s “Why Don’t You Do Right.” Attendees including Madison’s E! reality co-stars Bridget Marquardt of “The Girls Next Door” and Josh Strickland of “Holly’s World,” revealed in the venue’s authentic 1920s décor, while enjoying premium hand rolled cigars in the private cigar room and toasting to the fabulous night.
