The Jekyll and Hyde Club

Tonight's location isn't technically haunted, but it is a fun haunted attraction for a weary traveller looking for something a little bit odd and different.   The Jekyll and Hyde Club has several locations around Manhattan.   It is my sons' favorite place to eat and although the food may be nothing extraordinary, it's worth a visit just for the show.
This restaurant creates an atmosphere that is complete with a story of Dr.Jekyll travelling to New York to found the restaurant and turn it into a museum for his and his diabolical collection of friend's mad experiments and ghostly travels. 

The Jekyll and Hyde is staffed by actors and as soon as you walk in the door you are greeted by igors and vampires who keep their role on all night long.  They take you to your table and play various jokes on you that keep this already interesting place even more interesting.  Once you are in the restaurant, there are several options for seating.  There is the attic floor which is filled with goulish dolls and creepy clowns that move and reach out for you as you walk past.  A skeleton band plays for a black angel.   In the labratory, you'll find all kinds of hellish concoctions and experiments.  The library is my favorite floor with it's stacks of bizarre books and paintings that follow you with their eyes as you walk past.   On the first floor, or grand salon, you get the best view of the show.   The show pays homage to classic horror and is scary and funny enough to keep both grown-ups and kids watching.

The Jekyll and Hyde is a family friendly restaurant and if you ever take your family to New York it is a fun way to spend an evening.  You can eat, get a show, and enjoy a little scare before you return to the real world.

Holy cow! I want to be an actor in that place! How fun! What a job! I know I'd just die to be in the doll/clown room. I wish they'd franchise. We could seriously use a scary-all-year place here in AZ. I always said that if I won the lottery, I'd build a haunted attraction open year-round here. That'd be the kind of restaurant I'd want attached to it. Way cool!
