Full of secret passageways and hidden rooms throughout a prohibition era club, guests are free to explore a decadent nightclub from a bygone era featuring: two Bars, a Vaudeville Cabaret, a vintage Casino, a Dressing Room – where a one-way mirror allows audience members to view voyeuristic moments – plus the gangster bosses office!

Interact with flappers, floozies, gangsters, and bootleggers during a “choose-your-own-adventure” full of extravagance and spectacle. Celebrate with your friends, snuggle with your sweetheart and get dizzy on the giggle water in this one-of-a-kind San Francisco adventure.
