Murder Mystery Dinner

Murder Mystery Dinner

Looking for something fun and unique to do when the weather turns gloomy? Round up a group of 8 friends and figure out who done it…over a fabulous four course dinner served in our private dining room.

The setting? A 1920s speakeasy in old Chicago. You and your companions each will assume the role of one of eight beguiling characters. We’ll provide the script, the costume suggestions, and of course an amazing Rookery feast. All you need to bring is your sense of humor and a light-hearted approach toward deceit, larceny, sex, and murder.

Only $69/person (plus cost of bootleg beverages). Offered exclusively to self-organized groups of 8 friends by reservation, typically on a Wednesday, Thursday, or Sunday evening during our quiet season (Nov-Dec and Mar-Apr).
