Las Vegas, Nevada: Tivoli Gardens - Ghost of Liberace (Gone)

Restaurant owned by Liberace until his death in 1987. Gaudy mirrored and decorated interior, Italian food. With his museum next door shuttered, does dead Libby occasionally twinkle in, seeking his audience? If he did, it wasn't enough to stop them from moving to a new location in Vegas in 2012.

Carluccio's Tivoli Gardens - Ghost of Liberace?

Carluccio's Tivoli Gardens is the restaurant owned by Liberace until his death in 1987. The restaurant sat empty for nearly a year until the Carluccio family purchased it.

Sadly, this great attraction keeps getting labeled in travel guides as closed because the Liberace Museum next door (but under completely different management) has closed.

Tivoli Gardens has all the camp and kitsch from Mr. Showmanship, complete with his piano bar, mirrored dining room, and chandeliers for great Italian dining. The staff have been with the restaurant for more than 20 years and have great tales of being haunted by Lee himself.
