There are several dinner shows in Orlando but there’s only one Treasure Tavern.
At Treasure Tavern, guests experience a two-hour comedy and burlesque variety show filled with laughter and indecent fun. The show is daring and different, appropriate for adults only.
Madame Gretta, the hostess with the mostest, leads guests through the show from the start to the end. She is usually accompanied by her sidekicks Rob and Grift who say idiotic, funny things. Madame Gretta is also accompanied by her “jewels” who sing and dance and her “special” jewel Jinx.
The show consists of humorous and entertaining skits. Rob and Grift opens the show teaching guests the Treasure Tavern creed. Madam Gretta talks about her issues in love and that every woman needs a man with a big "bulge". The "Celebrity Flash" part of the show makes fun of political leaders such as Bill and Hillary Clinton and reality TV stars such as Snooki and the Situation of Jersey Shore and Kim Kardashian.
Some of the other performances include acrobatics by Verbotten Sensation, acrobatic hula-hoops by Anna Jack, singing by Mysterious Mystique and quick-change act by the Smirnovs.
Throughout the show, guests enjoy dinner that consists of cream of vegetable soup, garden salad, beef tenderloin (you can substitute with chicken or salmon), asparagus and decadent opera cake. The meal was well-prepared and very tasteful. The mixed green salad contained cherry tomatoes and olives and was topped with feta cheese. The thick, juicy, well-seasoned beef tenderloin was paired with delicious loaded mashed potatoes and tasty asparagus. The meal ended with a slice of good, chocolate opera cake. Guests listened to fun songs “Toss My Salad” and “You Can’t Beat the Meat” before eating dinner.
Treasure Tavern is a small venue so every seat has a good view and the atmosphere is intimate and cozy. The show takes place on a small stage and sometimes, the performers go off-stage and walk around the venue to interact with guests. The venue has great lighting and audio.
Located just off International Drive, Treasure Tavern is a great place for a fun night out and special occasions such as a date night or a birthday party. Here’s a tip, if you sit close to the front, you might be invited to go onstage to receive a sexy dance by the jewels. Also, the show involves some audience participation so don’t be shy.
