The most unique event space in San Francisco. This meticulously recreated 1923 bootlegger's den serves as the home of the immersive theatre hit "The Speakeasy". But the venue can be yours for a special private party, the most memorable corporate event, or an unforgettable fundraiser.
STEP INTO 1923
Walk through our doors and take a step back in time. Every room overflows with 1920s period detail, from real tin ceilings to authentic carpet patterns, to high tank toilets in the rest rooms. The four main spaces are the Bar, Casino, Cabaret, and Lounge, connected by a network of secret pass-throughs, hallways, ramps, and chambers. Entrance to the venue is only through one of our false-front businesses, Joe's Clock Shop or Sam Lee Laundry. In the bar, our cocktail menu features world-class recreations of classic Jazz Age concoctions, all made from the finest modern ingredients.
VAUDEVILLE-STYLE ENTERTAINMENT AND CASINO GAMING
In the 125-seat Cabaret, we offer top-notch Vaudeville-style entertainment, drawn from the immersive theatre hit "The Speakeasy". Customize your own line-up featuring our dance chorus, chanteuse, comedy duo, ventriloquist, sword swallower, jugglers, magicians, aerialists, and burlesque artists. Our 4-6 piece house band keeps the joint jumping with a knock-out jazz repertoire. The Casino features black jack, craps, and roulette, on our custom-built 1920s gaming tables -- "for entertainment only" -- staffed by expert dealers in period costume.
FLEXIBLE EVENT FORMAT
Our most popular event format starts with a cocktail hour and appetizers in the Bar, followed by a 45-minute Vaudeville show in the Cabaret. You've already got the crowd's attention, so following the show is the perfect moment for the host to take the stage for a special announcement, awards presentation, or just to say thank you. Next, the party moves to the Casino and Bar, for an hour or two of gambling, spirits, and general merriment. But the possibilities expand from there. We'll work with you to combine elements and create your perfect event format. Film screening, dance floor, photo booth, even sit-down meals are all possible. With our partner Exit Reality we can even incorporate a virtual reality experience into the evening, if you really want your guests to time travel!
