Elton John’s  spouse, David Furnish,  plans to open a lounge inside Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, just steps from the Colosseum where the legendary singer-songwriter performs in rotation with other stars.

The Champagne bar, to be called Fizz, is expected to open this fall adjacent to Caesars’ Forum Casino. It will be built between the Colosseum and the nearby entrance to the Forum Shops.

The lounge will feature high-end Champagnes by the glass, along with a range of cocktails. John’s personal chef is helping select caviar and charcuterie choices to complement the beverage selections.

“Fizz is an extension of our personal style,” Furnish said in a news release. “Spending so much time in Las Vegas with Elton’s performance schedule, we wanted a space that would reflect our personal style and become an extension of the way we entertain at home.”

Las Vegas-based TAL Studio will work with a budget of more than $3 million to create what the news release described as “a throwback reflection on ’70s designer David Hicks,” with a “glam-chic” feel reminiscent of the couple’s Los Angeles home.

The exact opening date isn’t yet known, although a publicist said Fizz would most likely welcome its first guests in November.
