History:

The restaurant was opened by Liberace, who owned the entire shopping center, in 1983. When Liberace died on February 4, 1987, the space stood vacant for more than a year until the Carluccio family purchased it.

For four years, Liberace entertained at his restaurant, cooked for his guests and even lived in a private apartment that is now part of the Museum. One of the dining rooms used to be where Liberace privately held dinner parties. The room has a small bar and a separate entrance to the kitchen. According to Hosier, his good friends Debbie Reynolds and Rip Taylor were frequent visitors. Many strip entertainers would frequent the Piano Lounge and perform with Liberace. As a patron for the arts, his complex was frequented by dancers from various reviews and shows to hold rehearsals in a ballroom that is now part of the Museum.

"Liberace had a separate kitchen for private entertaining," Hosier said. The museum sells a cook book of Liberace’s favorite recipes.

Believers say the ghostly encounters began right after Liberace passed, with reports of odd noises, objects falling for no reason and glimpses of unexplained movement.

John Hosier, who bought the restaurant from the Carluccio family in 1999, said  activity peaks on Feb. 4, the anniversary of Liberace's death, and on May 16, his birthday. "We lose power just in this building; appliances break down, and toilets flush by themselves. The phenomenon is strongest near Liberace’s piano but employees have experienced cold spots and unexplained noises throughout the restaurant.”      

Hosier has kept the venue exactly as it was when Liberace owned it, decorated it, entertained in it and cooked for his good friends like Debbie Reynolds and Rip Taylor.

At one time, it was a popular hangout for “The Chicago Outfit,” including the Spilatro Brothers. The restaurant has a piano lounge, two banquet rooms and a private dining room called The Mafia Room.
