Liberace Las Vegas Carluccio's Trivoli Gardens

By
Real Estate Agent with Simply Vegas Real Estate
Carluccio's Tivoli Gardens is an excellent Italian restaurant just off of the Las Vegas Strip. The service and food are great and the prices are reasonable.  We took friends to dinner there tonight and we had a good time and a wonderful meal.
The restaurant originally belonged to Liberace. The inside was designed by Liberace and the piano bar is actually in the shape of a grand piano. It is open everyday at 4:30PM and is closed on Mondays. 
Carluccio's is located right next door to the Liberace Museum.  So if you are a Liberace fan or just want to learn more about him, you can visit the museum Tuesday thru Saturday 10AM to 5PM and Sunday noon to 5PM.  It is closed on Mondays.
 
If you are interested in relocating to Las Vegas or would like information on Las Vegas real estate, please email me roberta@search4lasvegashomes.com  or call me at 702-354-8988.  I look forward to hearing from you!

Roberta-    How elaborate! Truly a Liberace creation. There are so many exciting places in Vegas. Have you met Lee Cervoni yet? How is he doing.

Mark: It is a great place and very elaborate!  I don't think Lee Cervoni is in my office.  I can't find his name on the list.

Hi Roberta:  The pictures are just great.  Liberace was such an incredible performer.  And all he did was simlply be himself.  What a showman.  His outfits were something many women and some guys would just die for.  Thanks so much for sharing with us.

Roberta - Sounds like fun. I'll have to check it out next time I'm in LV. I love Hugo's Cellar at the Four Queens.

ROBERTA:  What an amazing looking place. I LOVE Italian food. Now...I'm craving it, and Las Vegas is a pretty long way from home. :-)

Karen Anne:  Liberace was an interesting guy.  I have included a few more pictures of Liberace's stuff that are in Lonny Hammargren's house.  If you haven't read the post that I did on Lonnie make sure you take a look at it.  http://activerain.com/blogsview/247057/Beyond-the-Neon-Part  

The staircase was used by Liberace in his show at the Riviera.  Lonnie had it built into his house after he acquired it.  The upright piano was his traveling piano and the fur coat also belongs to him.   In the second picture, there is a photo (to the right of the chair) of Liberace coming down the staircase during his show.

My wife and I joke about going to the museum, every time we passed it when we are in Vegas. For 5 years straight we never did go and now we haven't been back in 8 years and promised ourselves next time we do go, we will really actually stop there, instead of just joking about it.

Lisa:  It is a great place to visit.

Todd: Next time, make sure you stop.  I'm sure you will enjoy it.  Sounds like you are overdue for a Vegas visit.

The photos are really very interesting.  It must be lovely to visit Liberace's place.  What I would like to know is what year did Liberace sue some guy because this guy called him gay.  Liberace won this case.  I know his partner took him to court too, this case is a different one.  Please can anyone help.  allison

Allison: Sure, you couldn't ask an easy one, like where is Liberace's former Las Vegas home located. That one I know. :)  

I had to defer to my resident Vegas history buff. The only thing he can recall hearing about is a UK's Daily Mail writer that went by 'Cassandra', or something like that. He believes the fellow's actual name was Conner, and it was mid to late 1950's, around the time of a European tour. About that same time he sued a Hollywood tabloid (Named Confidentail ?), also for written accusations. Besides the Palimony suit filed by former live-in Thorson, Liberace was also sued by Joanne Rio, to whom he once announced an engagement, but never married. He believes that suit was brought after one of Liberace's Bios came out that claimed they had been intimate.  

That was all my history buff could come up with off the top of his head. Hope that helps!
