Calling all literature lovers and cocktail enthusiasts! This one-of-a-kind Edgar Allan Poe Speakeasy has officially arrived at the American Theater in Charleston, 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 August 10 to August 12, 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 American Theater on Upper King Street is the perfect venue for this one-of-a-kind experience, providing a timeless, historic atmosphere. Established in 1942 as the premier movie house in Charleston, the sophisticated venue boasts an intimate lounge and bar, handmade milk-glass chandeliers and a vintage exterior marquee.
Guests will enjoy a 90-minute interactive show as they sip on four complimentary cocktails (non-alcoholic cocktail are also available upon request). Tickets start at $55 and are available to those ages 21 and up.
