It might not be Halloween just yet, but if you are looking to start celebrating a little early, you have to check out this pop-up Speakeasy that’s making its way to New Jersey.

If you’re a fan of the macabre poet Edgar Allan Poe, this is the event for you.


The Edgar Allan Poe Speakeasy experience brings a cocktail experience based on the stories of Poe.

It’s inside a Speakeasy and the whole experience is told by Poe historians who will tell you tales based on the four cocktails that go along with Poe’s famous stories.
