We argued with ourselves whether the Cutting Room is actually a cabaret or just a great venue for live sounds. With the variety of entertainment and acts it presents we had to plop it in here. Driving rock, R&B, a bit of pop and classic cabaret acts such as the Coney Island Freak Show and Le Scandal. Hit the lounge to relax in the very comfy men's club cum drawing room decor with a twist (remember Pac Man?) and enjoy a cocktail along with some great upscale bar food or one of the few simple entrees for those with more of an appetite
