LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — In compliance with Nevada’s new statewide pause regulations, ABSINTHE by Spiegelworld says "The show will go on!"

For the next three weeks, ABSINTHE will perform for 50 guests per show at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Wednesday to Sunday at Caesars Palace.

The Gazillionaire and his mask-clad troupe will maintain their ongoing performance schedule with hopes of increasing capacity again as soon as possible.

“We’re disappointed to have our venue’s capacity reduced even further despite our best-in-class safety protocols, but we remain committed to entertaining and innovating as safely as possible through this pandemic to help ensure the livelihood of our artists and staff,” said Spiegelworld Impresario Extraordinaire Ross Mollison. “By all measures, our diligence in developing and implementing the protocols in our health and safety handbook has been evaluated as successful after one month of shows. By demonstrating that we can operate safely with a live audience in attendance, we hope that the entertainment community will be given the same consideration for operating as other businesses in the state with capacity limits of at least 25%.”


Spiegelworld remains committed to providing as safe an environment as possible for its guests, performers, and staff by maintaining extensive protocols.

Ongoing health and safety efforts include, but are not limited to:

  • Reduced audience capacity in parties of two to four at sufficiently distanced cabaret tables spaced 25 feet away from the performers’ main stage.
  • Upon arrival, guests are asked to participate in a brief verbal health screening and no-contact temperature check before being ushered to their color-coded pod in the outdoor courtyard. Audiences are brought in and out of the venue by color section to avoid congestion at entrances and exits.
  • Masks are required to be worn by all artists, staff, and patrons while indoors and outdoors. Guests may briefly remove their masks while actively drinking but are otherwise asked to keep their face covering on.
  • A cashless, QR code-based cocktail service eliminates lines at the bar.
  • ABSINTHE’s world-famous Spiegeltent, including seating areas and all frequently touched surfaces, is sanitized before and after every performance.

The ABSINTHE box office will deliver refunds for performances through Dec. 15 to affected ticket holders whose reservations were placed after the 50-person threshold was met.

Those guests will be contacted by the box office directly and are encouraged to re-book their reservation for another performance that has availability remaining.
