Las Vegas is the city of entertainment, known for the abundance of dining and show options that exist. What many visitors don’t realize, however, is that the two can still be experienced simultaneously at a dinner show.
While dinner shows were commonplace in earlier incarnations of Las Vegas, the experience has become harder to find over the years.
Below, we’ll dive into your options when it comes to dinner shows in Las Vegas both on the Strip and downtown on Fremont Street. Note that some dinner shows require a ticket, while others offer free entertainment as part of the cost of your meal.
Dinner Shows 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. Ticket prices typically start at around $55, and we recommend checking both directly with the box office and with Vegas.com here to ensure you get the best deal.
Mayfair Supper Club at Bellagio: A much more upscale version of the Las Vegas dinner show, Mayfair offers entertainment alongside dinner 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. A popular dinner show destination, we suggest making reservations well in advance here. As an added bonus, the restaurant offers a Bellagio Fountain view.
Lake of Dreams at Wynn: A free show offered nightly from sundown to 11:30 pm, Wynn’s Lake of Dreams show 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 a differentiated, and free, Las Vegas dinner show.
Coming Soon – Superfrico at Cosmopolitan: Replacing Rose.Rabbit.Lie, Superfrico is the creation of Spiegelworld, who are also the folks behind the popular shows “Absinthe” and “Opium”. The restaurant will combine dining, cocktails, and entertainment in one package. As big fans of everything Spiegelworld, we’re excited for their new concept to open on September 24th, 2021.
Dinner + a Show Deals: In addition to the usual Las Vegas dinner shows listed, there are a number of deals that package dinner + a show ticket together at a discount. Although the dinner occurs before the show and not simultaneously, these deals available for under $100 per person could still be of interest!
Dinner Shows on Fremont Street
Marriage Can Be Murder: A comedy murder mystery, Marriage Can Be Murder is both humorous and entertaining. Although the show no longer calls The D home, “pop up” performances are being scheduled at Hennessey’s Tavern on Fremont Street. 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. Check rates, performance dates, and purchase tickets in advance both with the box office.
Although there isn’t an abundance of dinner shows in Las Vegas, there are a number of options that could be a good fit! Hopefully, we helped you find a dinner theater or deal that works for you and your group.
