Elton John's Partner Opening Las Vegas Champagne Bar

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- David Furnish is planning to open a swanky champagne lounge in the same Las Vegas Strip casino where his partner, Sir Elton John, holds a residency.

The nearly 3,000-square-foot FIZZ Las Vegas bar is set to debut this fall at Caesars Palace. Developers promise caviar, charcuterie and small plates to complement the champagne and other cocktails.

Furnish says he spends so much time in Las Vegas while Elton John performs his show, "The Million Dollar Piano," that the couple wanted a space to reflect their personal style.

The $3.2 million venue will be modeled after their home in Los Angeles and will feature photography from the pair's personal collection. Managers describe the aesthetic as a "glam-chic" throwback to 1970s designer David Hicks.
