Renderings of Jeff Beacher’s Madhouse have been released today; the wild-and-crazy party is scheduled to open at MGM Grand, in the former site of “Crazy Horse Paris,” on New Year’s Eve.
Beacher’s Madhouse will be an 8,500-square-foot performance theater decorated in red velvet and tufted leather and featuring a life-size stuffed elephant and a human cannonball, all concealed behind an inconspicuous bookcase that adds to the fantasy world that is Beacher’s Madhouse.
Construction is underway at MGM Grand, with previews commencing in December followed by an opening set for New Year’s Eve, while the official grand opening is set for Jan. 17.
Weekly industry nights for Beacher’s Madhouse, a favorite L.A. and Las Vegas haunt for Paris Hilton and, more recently in L.A., Miley Cyrus, begin Jan. 8.
