Even if you don’t escape, you can cut a rug on the dance floor. Let DJ OscarD entertain you throughout the night while playing your favourite tunes from the 60’s to the 90’s. Be sure to request your favourite song at checkout. Bet you never thought you’d dance in a Cold War Bunker!

Throughout the night, you’ll be able to indulge in a selection of appetizers, a black and red candy bar, and specialty drinks. We’ll be sure to serve your martinis shaken, not stirred.
We want you to remember this incredible night! Embrace your inner spy and become a master of disguise in our themed photo booth! You’ll be able to go home with printed photos and then access the digital ones online after the party is over!
