See the other side of Newport, RI as you solve a Speakeasy Murder Mystery!
The speakeasy proprietress, your local guide, will reveal Newport’s little known history with Prohibition. Take a driving tour of Thames Street, a former speakeasy haven, to Ten Mile Ocean Drive featuring the gilded mansions, million dollar beaches and the site of a botched smuggling scheme!
Your Guide will whisper the password for entrance to the speakeasy “hidden” at The Hotel Viking, one of the most prestigious hotels in New England. While you enjoy an elegant high tea luncheon of assorted tea sandwiches, pastries, fruit, and of course tea, you’ll be surrounded by some of the era’s most famous bootleggers as a murder unfolds - It’s up to you to solve the murder mystery!
