Psychic Speakeasy: An Evening of Mind Reading in Room 13

Join us for an intimate evening with a local mentalist inside a cozy, prohibition-themed speakeasy in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood.

Atlas Obscura is bringing mind reader Jacob Mayfield to one of the country’s premiere speakeasies. This night will include experiments in ESP, cocktail conjuring, divination with Room 13’s grand piano, and much more. Sip a drink and enjoy one of Chicago’s leading psychic entertainers.

Before and after the performance, guests can mingle with Mayfield while enjoying classic cocktails from the Jazz Age era and earlier. He may not reveal his secrets, but he is happy to reveal a drink recommendation.

This highly-anticipated special performance will take place in the Old Chicago Inn’s Room 13 speakeasy. Like all proper speakeasies, a password is required for entry. The password will be sent to ticket holders via email 48 hours prior to the event.
