The ghosts of old Las Vegas are headed to a reportedly haunted location. Two restaurants filled with live entertainment are slated to help revive the down on its luck Liberace Plaza. The strip mall is a former home to both the Liberace Museum and Carluccio's Tivoli Gardens, once owned and designed by Lee himself. Now, a Russian restaurant filled with authentic nightly entertainment is planning to make some noise and into the Tivoli Gardens, a 7,100-square-foot Italian steakhouse with some very Vegas accompaniments.

Even before opening its Italian restaurant, Roma Stage is hiring for its evening dinner shows and they are looking to book tribute acts who can impersonate Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Dean Martin and Barbra Streisand.

Before it closed, the Carluccio's interior featured mirrors everywhere, including Liberace's autographed grand piano and a grand piano-shaped bar. The restaurant is also noted for alleged ghostly activity and workers seeing Liberace's ghostly apparition peering through the windows.

Right next door will be even more music at the Cafe Mayakovsky, from the owners of the shuttered Tverskaya Russian Restaurant. The 3,750-square-foot supper club will include a full menu of authentic Russian dishes alongside authentic Russian entertainers and singers. Both projects have begun their journey though the permits process.

The concepts do note the piano-themed sculpture on the roof of the Tivoli Gardens will be sticking around after the remodels.
