Murder Mystery Dinner

Upgrade your company or organization’s luncheon or dinner by adding some entertainment to engage the group. 
The Venue Uptown has several options for event space and menus for your event. We are partnering with Murder Café to host mystery or history themed events.
Murder Café is the area’s premier murder mystery entertainment company has been killing audiences one laugh at time since 1998.
When you hire Murder Café you get an original script that can be customized for your company party, fundraiser or event. There is a full range of themes available and each production features professional actors, comedy and music. Our shows are broken into four scenes to accommodate dinner service and they are as interactive as you want them to be. Each is a whodunit and you get to keep track of clues and solve the murder. Prizes are awarded to those who guess correctly.
The minimum number of guests is 30. Pricing is as follows:
30-60: $1100
61-100: $1300
101-150: $1500
151-200: $1700
Just add the above to the cost of your luncheon or dinner to create a memorable event.
Our lead-time for private party entertainment is two weeks although we would prefer 3-4 weeks if a themed script needs to be customized.
In addition to the show, actors, costumes and props Murder Café supplies programs, pencils, whodunit sheets, prizes and artwork for posters or flyers.
