FIZZ bursts with champagne and contemporary photography.

Elton John and his civil partner, David Furnish, are famous for throwing big, high-profile parties. Now Las Vegas is getting a taste of these celebrity celebrations at FIZZ—a chic champagne lounge inside Caesars Palace. “Everything in Vegas is getting bigger, but it’s hard to feel special in a place like that,” explains Furnish. “When people go out, they want to feel special, so I thought if everyone is going bigger, let’s go smaller. My whole vision of FIZZ is I wanted it to be a treat in someone’s day. People come to Vegas to escape, to have fun and to treat themselves. I want them to feel like they’re escaping, like they’re walking into an oasis when they enter FIZZ.” Sandwiched between The Forum Shops at Caesars and The Colosseum, FIZZ serves up a selection of vintage and rare champagnes, carefully curated spirits, and a menu consisting of caviar, charcuterie and small bites. Elton John fans will find champagne cocktails bearing the names of his songs, such as “Mexican Vacation,” “Jamaica Jerk-Off ” and “Kiss the Bride.” The lavish 2,750-square-foot, two story lounge is dressed in warm hues of champagne, cognac, copper and ivory. Gracing the walls are stunning works of art by photographers David LaChapelle, David Bailey, Denise de la Rue, Kudzanai Chiurai and Edward Burtynsky. “Because Vegas is a colorful place, color photography was a natural choice, and because the room has such high ceilings, the images are large,” says Furnish. “Contemporary art always looks brilliant in a space where you can show it off; when you can give it air and let it breathe.”
