If you’re a lover of literature and cocktails, you’re not going to want to miss this unique Edgar Allan Poe Speakeasy. Coming to Newark for a limited time, the interactive show and cocktail experience will retell four of Poe’s most infamous works of literature in a captivating, spine-chilling manner.
The experience will only be at Newark Symphony Hall from December 14th to December 16th, so be sure to grab tickets here before it vanishes!
Signature cocktails, such as the “Pale Blue Eye” and “Edgar’s Twisted Brandy Milk Punch” will accompany each tale.
Edgar Allan Poe historians will bring Poe’s Gothic horror works to life through captivating retellings of The Raven, Masque of Red Death, The Tell-Tale Heart and The Black Cat — complete with libations, of course. Throughout the evening, a skilled mixologist will shake up four signature cocktails to pair with each tale, such as “The Raventini,” making sure that each drink is as deliciously decadent as the next.
It’s only fitting that this unique speakeasy is taking place at New Jersey’s oldest and largest arts and entertainment venue. Initially born as the Salaam Temple in 1925, Newark Symphony Hall has now hosted a variety of great entertainers for over 90 years!
Attendees will enjoy four complimentary cocktails during the engaging 90-minute show. Ticket prices begin at $55 and are limited to guests age 21 and over. Upon purchase, you will have a choice of the 6pm, 8pm or 10pm show.
