About this event
Experience all the action and excitement of an impromptu party at a gangster organised drinking hall in defiance of the Prohibition!
Join Tony, the flamboyant and lovable owner of the exclusive club for a night of cards, gambling and drinking, that's if you know the secret knock and can get past Tony's bouncers, 'Styx' and 'Stones'.
Once inside, guests are warmly welcomed by Big Tony and the gambling gets underway! Tony is looking for his next ‘apprentice’. Guests can move from table to table at their leisure… under the watchful eyes of the bouncers, of course!
Games include: Roulette, Blackjack, Poker and Crown and Anchor.
While the betting and gaming tables is in full swing, Big Tony, Styx and Stones mix and mingle with your guests, amusing them with their quick wit and charm.
The evening can be structured to accommodate a sit down meal or a buffet / finger food available during the gambling. The event is informal so guests can enjoy the food and drink and also socialise and network.
At the conclusion of the gaming period, the croupiers tally up the chips and Big Tony announces the winner and presents spot prizes.
Upon the completion of the gambling your evening can continue with more drinks, food and dancing.
This event can also be done as a double header with our popular 1920s murder mystery event Taking Out Big Tony.
