Put on your detective hats

The famous ‘Murder in the Speakeasy’ is back with a new story. Dress in your glamorous 1920s attire and twirl the most-loved Hercule Poirot moustaches, whilst gathering clues and hints from the immersive characters, in the room where Bugsy Alphonse was murdered. This month, flashback into the world of gangsters and dolls, for Paramount Hotel Dubai is bringing in a sensational musical with Broadway-standard powerhouse vocal performances. All you need to do is travel to New York in the 1920s and put on your investigative hat as you step into a movie (an alternative reality of drama, bootlegging, and music) behind the hidden speakeasy door in the lobby to help settle a century-old homicide. Throughout the evening, you will gather clues from the cast to solve the crime.

On January 14, 19, and 26, 8-11 pm, Flashback Speakeasy Bar & Lounge, Paramount Hotel Dubai
