A speakeasy hidden by a barbershop makes its debut this weekend when The Barbershop Cuts & Cocktails opens at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Clique Hospitality partners Andy Masi, Ryan Labbe, and Jason Craig bring this space that features a barbershop at the front and a speakeasy discovered through the janitor’s door at the rear.
Friday night will feature a special headline performance by Gavin Rossdale’s Bush.
On Saturday night, The Barbershop’s house band The 442s kicks off the night. Guitarist Ben Carey toured with Lifehouse, Vertical Horizon, and Savage Garden. Singers Justin Carder and Shawn Eiferman, bassist Eric Runquist, and drummer Chris Lukes join Carey to form The 442s.
Dennis Quaid & The Shark’s rock ‘n’ roll and country-soul band takes over the venue on Friday, March 22, followed by the R&B sounds of Robin Thicke on Saturday, March 30th.
