BREAKING THE RULES: Channeling the ambience of a Twenties social club, The Cosmopolitan Hotel’s newest addition, Rose. Rabbit. Lie. — an all-in-one bar, restaurant, live performance venue and club — delivers a fresh genre of entertainment to the Strip, touted by its creators as “a grand social experiment.”

Five rooms comprise the communal venue: a library, study, music room, swimming pool and ballroom, each of which offer a markedly different vibe and corresponding cocktail (with custom, slow-melting ice cubes, no less).

Guests are encouraged to curate their own “mash-up of experiences,” perhaps beginning with a “Dark & Stormy” cocktail ($16) before taking a seat for the first canto of “Vegas Nocturne,” a 90-minute vaudeville and acrobatics performance created by Spiegelworld, the production company behind the popular “Absinthe” at Caesars Palace, and produced by David Foster. Sit ringside at the 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. shows for $135 a head, or grab a $30 ticket for the standing-room-only midnight performance.

Just want dinner? No problem. Following a “no rules” mentality, show tickets and restaurant reservations are separate — although it’s not guaranteed that performers won’t interrupt your meal with some improvisational dancing atop the bar.

Enjoy a mix of modernized “global classics” and “dramatic large-scale offerings” from executive chef Wesley Holton, such as short rib stroganoff ($17), uni perciatelli ($34) and caviar tacos ($15 each).

Finally, guests can top off the evening with a dip from the 500-glass-tall sparkling Champagne tower.
