new york city mystery getaway for 2
mystery in the big apple
See the mysterious and underground world of New York City like never before with this “well-crafted” speakeasy whodunit dead getaway! Enjoy accommodations for 3 nights at The Standard – East Village, located off Cooper Square in one of New York’s most vibrant, artistic neighborhoods. The Standard, East Village is cozy, charming, and eccentric in equal measure—very much in the spirit of its surroundings. Blackouts may apply, including holidays, NYU Graduation, Fashion Week, UN General Assembly, and New Year's Eve.
Take a deep dive underground with a 90 minute candlelight walking tour of the famous Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in NOLI (North of Little Italy). See the catacombs up close and personal and say "hey" to some of the most famous residents such as John Pierpont Morgan Sr, founder of JP Morgan Bank! Even for the dead, pricing below ground is as expensive as above, with vaults going for a "measly" $12 million – but don’t worry, up to 12 family or friends can be accommodated in a catacomb.
You may need a stiff drink after that tour so hop on over to the famed Dead Rabbit Irish pub for a quick bite and a pint. Don’t forget to try the Deviled Eggs with lobster or their signature “Dead Rabbit Burger.
Ready for more? Grab a cab and head up the East side to one of the most famous spots in Manhattan, the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Put your crime detective skills to the test with this roaming 2.5-hour “murder mystery scavenger hunt.” Track down the killer with clues found all over the museum among the world-class exhibits.
Finish the night like a real NYC detective and head to Death & Co, winner of the 2019 James Beard Foundation “Cocktail Codex.” Bowties and suspenders will take you back to the yesteryear of prohibition as these mixologists handcraft you a one-of-a-kind cocktail. Sit back and relax while sipping on a French 76, Blood Moon or a straight glass of well-aged bourbon.
