Let the Prohibition era return. Tonight, 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque, the new speakeasy with entertainment by Holly Madison, debuts at Mandalay Place. This is just a soft opening, so only expect to land cocktails in the Jazz Age environment.
Expect classic burlesque shows from Bourbon Burlesque, the entertainment portion of the venue show created by Madison of Girls Next Door and Holly's World fame.
A hidden VIP room features hand-rolled cigars as well as Prohibition-inspired cocktails delivered by servers wearing authentic 1920s attire. Six specialty cocktails make the menu including the Sexy Negroni Barrel-Aged with Bulldog gin, Campari and Pavan liqueur, the 1923 Barrel-Aged Old Fashioned with Bulleit bourbon and That Strange Rush with 2 Nite vodka, Cointreau, lemon juice, blueberry juice and semi-sweet sparkling wine. A stash of 54 bourbons and ryes and 23 cigars also make an appearance.
Brickwork and barrels of bourbon line the walls and a live four-piece band and jazz vocalist provides the mood of the era.
Outside, find a photo of Walnut Street in Kansas City from 1906 with a Ford Model T marking the entrance.
