What do you get when you cross a "sassy cabaret-style show" with a fine dining experience?

What do you get when you cross a "sassy cabaret-style show" with a fine dining experience?

If you're in Vancouver this fall and winter, you get Cabaret Bijou, a new live performance and dinner theatre event touted as "Canada's only gourmet cabaret sensation."

Cabaret Bijou takes place inside a special temporary erected at Vanier Park and styled as "an opulent Spiegel pavilion, reminiscent of La Belle Epoque," creators have dubbed "The Mirror Palace."

"This bejewelled venue is a replica of a 100-year-old turn-of-the-century art deco treasure box, made of hand-crafted woodwork and over 2,000 bevelled mirrors," describes a media release for Cabaret Bijou.

Once inside, guests sit in assigned seats to take in an interactive cabaret-meets-cirque live show, complete with acrobatics and a "splash of vaudeville." The immersive entertainment - suitable for people age 16 and up - is paired with a meal created by Vancouver chef Sean Reeve (The Mackenzie Room, Say Mercy!, Collective Goods). Think jugglers, contortionists, trapeze artists, and magicians alongside a four-course elegant plated meal. 

"Our inaugural show is an opulent feast for the senses," says Cabaret Bijou Artistic Director and show creator Scott Malcolm.
