Las Vegas is known as the “City of Entertainment” due to the abundance of dining and show options that exist.
What most visitors don’t realize, though, is that the two can still be experienced simultaneously at a dinner show.
While this type of show was commonplace in earlier incarnations of Las Vegas, the experience has become harder to find over the years.
Below, I’ll dive into your remaining options to enjoy dinner alongside a show in Las Vegas which exist on the Strip, Downtown, and off the beaten path.
On The Strip
Tournament of Kings at Excalibur
Playing off of Excalibur’s medieval theme, Tournament of Kings brings the story of King Arthur to life. A popular Las Vegas dinner show, the production has served nearly 7 million Cornish Game Hens since 1990.
The meal includes a full cornish game hen, tomato soup, red potatoes, steamed broccoli, and an apple dessert.
Tickets usually land in the $70 range and can be priced out with:
Mayfair Supper Club at Bellagio
An upscale version of the Las Vegas dinner show, Mayfair offers entertainment alongside dinner and a view of the Fountains of Bellagio nightly.
Typical nightly performances include musical acts, with jazz musicians being featured on Sundays.
The acts paired with dinner provide a classy, vintage Las Vegas lounge vibe that is tough to beat. As a popular restaurant, I suggest making reservations at Mayfair Supper Club in advance.
Delilah at Wynn
A fine dining establishment, Delilah’s menu offers entrees ranging from $30 and up, with most landing in the $50-$60 range. Steaks are a tad more expensive and land in the $70 – $100 range.
While dining, guests are treated to complimentary entertainment that includes jazz, DJs, and other performance types.
No photography is allowed in the restaurant, and children under the age of 12 need to be left at home.
Lake of Dreams at Wynn
A free show, Wynn’s Lake of Dreams runs every 30 minutes on a nightly basis starting at sundown.
The production takes place on a small body of water complete with lush foliage, 4,000 submerged lights, and a waterfall.
The show is visible from both Lakeside and SW Steakhouse.
Featuring a singing frog and unique storylines, Wynn’s Lake of Dreams is both differentiated and free to enjoy.
Superfrico at Cosmopolitan
Superfrico is the creation of Spiegelworld, who are also the folks behind the popular shows “Absinthe”, “Atomic Saloon”, and “OPM”.
The restaurant combines dining, cocktails, and entertainment in one package.
Like their shows, the restaurant’s entertainment acts have been known to be on the “raunchier” side.
STRAT Dinner & a Show Deals
While dinner isn’t served *during* the show, STRAT is offering a number of Dinner & a Show packages that lump the two together into one package.
Show options include iLuminate (choreographed dancing), Rouge (burlesque/variety), the LA Comedy Club, and Banachek’s Mind Games (mentalist).
When booking, guests can book their choice of 4 restaurants (the menu is detailed as well) that range from casual (PT’s Wings & Sports) to classy (Top of the World).
The price you pay reflects the show and dinner combination you select, however, they look to be a solid value!
Vegas.com Dinner + a Show Deals
In addition to traditional dinner shows, there are a number of deals that package dinner + a show ticket together at a discount.
Although the dinner occurs before/after the show and not simultaneously, these deals available for under $100 per person could still be of interest!
Away From The Strip
Marriage Can Be Murder at The Orleans
A comedy murder mystery, Marriage Can Be Murder is both humorous and entertaining. The show, which used to call The D home has moved to The Orleans but is worth catching an Uber to see.
As the longest-running dinner show in Vegas, Marriage Can Be Murder offers a unique opportunity to follow the story and help solve the crime while enjoying a meal.
Tickets typically hover in the $75 range and can be priced out with:
The Rat Pack is Back! at Tuscany
A throwback to another era in Las Vegas, The Rat Pack is Back! looks to emulate the performances of Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, and Sammy Davis in The Sands’ Copa Room.
Accompanied by a 7-piece orchestra, this is a can’t-miss show for those that missed out on seeing the real thing in the 60s.
Tickets to the show without dinner start at around $90, and that increases to around $130 if you prefer to make it a dinner show. The dinner is served at the Tuscany Gardens Italian Restaurant either before or after the show, so unlike other options, you won’t be eating during the performance.
Although there is no longer an abundance of dinner shows in Las Vegas, there are a number of options that could be a good fit! Hopefully, I was able to help you find a dinner theater or deal that works for you and your group.
