Austin’s most haunted watering hole presents the most hilarious murder mystery dinner show in town! Be our guest for a three course meal and a three act murder mystery comedy—- with a different ending every night.

Cast Inclues Austin Favorites:

Shannon Sedwick | Shaun Branigan | Emily Cawood

Adam Rodriguez | Shannon McCormick | Patrick King




The Tavern has been a destination of ghost hunters for years. The most famous, wealthy, and eccentric of them all- Dame Karla Hempstead- has just passed on. Naturally, her last will and testament is being read at the Tavern. Will Emily, the Tavern ghost, make an appearance? Will a group of plucky teenagers in a psychedelic van with a talking dog show up and unmask the ghost? Will somebody die?!? Yes, yes, and yes. 

Check out the cast and menu below.
