Calling all literature lovers and cocktail enthusiasts! This one-of-a-kind Edgar Allan Poe Speakeasy just arrived in San Diego, 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 town for a limited time from January 11th to January 13th at the Adams Avenue Theater, 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 Normal Heights’ Adams Avenue Theater. With a history dating back to 1924, the iconic building is the perfect location for this pop-up Poe event. Plus, the theater underwent a major renovation in 2022, now offering a built-in speakeasy-style bar, surround sound capabilities, and more!
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.
