A Truly Unique San Francisco Experience

Before the Golden Gate Bridge was built, before Alcatraz held public enemy number one, and before the Giants made their way to the Bay, San Francisco was filled with vice and crime with speakeasies lining the Barbary Coast. Immerse yourself in an unbelievable history that you won’t find anywhere else in the world! Follow character storylines throughout many hidden secret rooms, watch the Vaudeville cabaret, or get pulled into impromptu storylines and become part of the action – it is sure to be a memorable San Francisco nightlife experience!


Our dress code is only enforced on Saturday evenings, but we encourage all our guests to dress up and participate in the fun! Didn’t bring your flapper dress or suspenders? Don’t sweat it! We have costume rentals and accessories to complete your roaring 1920s experience.

    VIP Costumed Characters

    When you rent a VIP Costumed Character, not only do we dress you to the nines, you also get special treatment, extra goodies and a guaranteed scene with one or more of our cast members. There are four VIP characters available: The Mayor, The Madam, The Horserace Owner, & The Chorus Girl. These are perfect for big celebrations or those who want to make sure they are a part of the action!

    There is only one of each VIP Costumed character available per performance.

    Premium Costumed Characters

    Ever want to live as someone else for the night? Enjoy one of our Premium Costumed Characters during your visit. We have a wide variety of characters to choose from: The Milkman, The Teacher, The Railroad Tycoon, and more! Each Premium Costumed Characters comes with a short biography of the character – you never know who you might run into during your visit…
