An imaginative show in a unique venue, ABSINTHE is the crown jewel of the Spiegelworld experience, an adult carnival that will transform the Roman Plaza in front of Caesars Palace into an entertainment playground. As the sun sets and the vibrant energy of The Strip sets in, Spiegelworld provides a retreat from reality.
