You might have squinted at him on the cover of Babel by Mumford & Sons, but come December you'll be able to see Piff The Magic Dragon performing in focus at Rose.Rabbit.Lie., the $12.8 million social club, nightclub and restaurant coming to the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

Behind a dragon persona, highly acclaimed magician John van der Put and his levitating, card trick performing chihuahua sidekick, Mr. Piffles, will be joining a team curated by Spiegelworld, the producers behind Absinthe at Caesars Palace.

A story breaking tweet by Teller of Vegas institutions Penn & Teller announced Piff had joined the cast.

Van der Put's creation rose to U.K. attention with a career-making performance on the TV contest Penn & Teller: Fool Us, where magicians competed to impress the magic duo. His routine attracted the attention of modern folkies Mumford & Suns, who brought him on tour as support act and placed him on the cover of their last CD.

Piff will become part of the nightly entertainment at Rose.Rabbit.Lie., with shows, or "cantos," slotted for 8 p.m., 10 p.m. and late night. Tickets for each theatrical immersion, titled Vegas Nocturne, will be $125 for the earlier hours and $30 for the late show, with cocktails and dinner service beginning at 6 p.m. Although the performances are said to surround guests, the Piff persona is best suited to a stage environment, hinting at a more formal layout to the eventual space. A Dec. 30 debut is promised by the Cosmopolitan.
