I kept running the word 'cabaret' over and over again in my mind, as I thought I was familiar with its historical origins. I was thinking of the Mediterranean style brothel, where in addition to singing and dancing, women also entertained the clientele in other ways. However, cabaret commonly refers to entertainment featuring comedy, song, dance and theatre, distinguished mainly by the performance venue — a restaurant or nightclub with a stage for performances and the audience sitting around the tables (often dining or drinking) watching the performance (wikipedia). According to further research on Wikipedia, in the United States cabaret diverged into several different and distinct styles of performance mostly due to the influence of Jazz Music. Chicago Cabaret focused intensely on the larger band ensembles and reached its zenith in the speakeasies and steakhouses (like The Palm) of the Prohibition Era. It is currently undergoing a renaissance of sorts, as new generations of performers reinterpret the old forms in both music and theatre. So, to answer your question, you are basically running a business that involves food and liquor, combined with live entertainment. This requires special licensing. For example, here is an excerpt from the City of Wichita's Web site: "A cabaret license shall be required for any person to operate any cafe, cafeteria, restaurant, tearoom, dining room, coffee house, private club, tavern, drinking establishment or any other place having a floor show, specialty act, disc jockey, or other live entertainment for guests. This includes go-go dancing, and strip tease dancing." And another from the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs: "Any room, place or space in the city in which patron dancing is permitted in connection with the restaurant business or a business that sells food and/or beverages to the public. Note: This is only a general explanation of the rules regarding Cabaret licenses. You may not operate a cabaret without a license. Licensees are required to comply with all relevant laws and rules, including the Consumer Protection Law. To get a copy of the actual law explaining whether or not you need a license for this category, call 311 or come in person to the DCA Licensing Center in Manhattan at the address above."

A cabaret license allows an establishment to allow nudity, whether it be a strip club or topless pool.
If you want to have live music, a dance floor, or an adult entertainment club - then you need a cabaret license. NOTE: This is NOT issued by New York State. Rather it is issued by the township in which the establishment exists. As such, cabaret license holders suffer far greater restrictions due to zoning and local noise (AKA "Quality of Life") ordinances. New York City is particularly notorious for the overzealous enforcement of Cabaret Licensing - with the number of license holders falling from 12,000 in 1960 to just over 200 in 2010.
You can't. If you get caught you could loose your business. Do you want that?
There isn't really a cabaret "style" of singing. Cabaret singing can be any style of music that is sung in cabaret. Cabaret being entertainment (not necessarily singing) in a nightclub or restaurant, and sometimes the place where cabaret is performed.
"Police raided the cabaret because of the illicit drug use there." "She began her singing career in a cabaret, but she was soon cast in several Broadway plays." (song lyrics) "Life is a cabaret, my friend; come to the cabaret."
