Meet-Up Page:

Google+ Event:

Event Time: 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Come join us for (possibly for the last time) a full moon-lit night dinner with fellow Luigi's fans as we play Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon in one of the most entertainingly haunted places in New York City!
Welcome to the Jekyll & Hyde Club; a Restaurant, bar and social club for eccentric explorers and mad scientists where our guests can eat, drink and socialize among the unusual and the bizarre!
In 1931, Dr. Jekyll fled London and traveled to New York City, a city filled with outcasts and wanderers. Continuing his research in the hope of finding a way to rid himself of Hyde, Jekyll formed a close circle of advisers and allies and together they founded the Jekyll & Hyde Club. It soon became a social meeting place for explorers, philosophers, biologists, and other daring men and women whose exploits into science and adventure we deemed too unorthodox by their colleagues in accepted society. Nevertheless, these visionaries shared a common goal, to understand the darker nature within us all.
Jekyll and his compatriots have filled the club with artifacts and trophies from their numerous amazing adventures. Their histories are summarized on plaques throughout the club. Come visit his very entertaining compatriots strolling in and about the club such as Dr. Sawyer Bones, Ivanta Hacketoff, Colonel Cary Clark, Major Michael magoo, Phillip Andrew Edward Carrington IV, Professor Pricilla Prank, Tippy Toppingsworth, or Ariel Boatsman.
Or witness the bizarre and eccentric characters that spring to life to interact with club visitors. These characters include insecure and somewhat bumbling Zeus; Sidney Femur and Marty Patella as the "Funny Bones" the original vaudeville act at the club back in 1931; Tobias Bloodworth, a friendly werewolf who gets everyone howling along; Sphinx, one of the grooviest of all the characters, brought to the club directly from Egypt by one of the club's explorers; and Fang, a gargoyle from Transylvania and a guardian of the Nether World. These main characters are complimented by a host of other interesting and "of course" deceased characters that come to life at the most unpredictable times.
The modern day Jekyll & Hyde Club is now open to the public. If you are not faint of heart, come mingle with our cast of characters and enjoy a brave new food and entertainment adventure awaiting your arrival!
