Calling all literature lovers and cocktail enthusiasts in Austin! This one-of-a-kind Edgar Allan Poe Speakeasy has arrived in Austin’s Charles Johnson House, bringing four of Poe’s most infamous works off of the page and onto the stage through an immersive cocktail experience. The speakeasy is only in Austin for a limited time from May 25 to May 27 at the Charles Johnson House, so secure your tickets here before it moves on to its next destination!
Specialty cocktails, including “The Raventini” and “Cocktail of Red Death,” will complement each story.
While it has been over a century and a half since Edgar Allan Poe graced us with a work of detective fiction or gothic horror, his legacy lives on. Within the Edgar Allan Poe Speakeasy, Poe historians will retell four of his most famous stories with a modern twist. The chilling tales feature The Tell-Tale Heart, The Raven, Masque of Red Death and The Black Cat.
The speakeasy has taken up residence at the historic Charles Johnson House near Lady Bird Lake. Established in 1858, the stunning venue is nearly as old as Edgar Allan Poe himself!
Guests will enjoy a 90-minute interactive show as they sip on four complimentary cocktails. Tickets start at $55 and are available to those ages 21 and up.
