'Rock of Ages' and The Bourbon Room at The Venetian

The Bourbon Room is inspired by the club featured in the 'Rock of Ages' musical.
Looks like there won't be just one Broadway musical playing the Las Vegas Strip. Opening this December is the 80s jukebox musical 'Rock of Ages' at the Venetian which also houses the newly christened Bourbon Room that replicates the setting for the show. But the 'Jersey Boys' at the Paris will be riding it solo for a few months after 'Phantom...The Las Vegas Spectacular' closes in September. 'Rock of Ages' will the play the Venetian showroom occupied by Blue Man Group which is moving to the Monte Carlo.

The announcement coincides with the release of the feature film adaptation of the Broadway hit this month which stars Tom Cruise, Catherine-Zeta Jones, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Mary J. Blige, Paul Giamatti, Bryan Cranston, Malin Akerman, Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta. No casting details has been announced for the Vegas production.

Featuring a score comprised of classic rock songs from the 1980s, 'Rock of Ages' is the story of Drew, an aspiring rock star, with big dreams who works at the legendary Los Angeles rock club, the Bourbon Room. 'Rock of Ages' opened April 7, 2009 on Broadway where it is currently still running. Songs include "Don't Stop Believin'," "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "Here I Go Again," "I Wanna Know What Love Is" and many others.

The Bourbon Room is inspired by the club in 'Rock of Ages'. It is already open and the intention is when the musical opens at the Venetian, guests may want to relive the experience at the club. The Bourbon Room, which replaces La Scena Lounge, is an L.A. Sunset Strip-type bar with workers wearing 80s inspired clothes. Below are interior shots of the club. The Bourbon Room is open daily from 2pm-4am.
