Canton Underworld Experience
Walking Tour and Bootlegger’s Lair Escape Room
Dinner is on your own with this tour, but we’ve got quite the adventure leading up to it: Canton Food Tours and Escape Room Downtown have teamed up to bring multiple experiences together into one fun adventure!
Take a walk through “Little Chicago” (with cocktail in hand) and discover legendary stories of prohibition. In addition to a fun chronological introduction to events leading up to the 18th Amendment, your tour guide will bring “Canton Jungle” tails to life.
Start with a fun, era-inspired cocktail at Bender’s Tavern before embarking on a 45 minute walk. Your walk will conclude at The Bootlegger’s Lair – an authentic-looking 1925 gambling den where you’ll play a premium, 60 minute “escape room” game. Your mission: Search for a dead bootlegger’s hidden stash and find it before time runs out!
Want to continue your experience? Try The Canton Brewing Company’s Snorky’s on Third (above the Speakeasy) or Bender’s Tavern (founded in 1902). Or dine at any of the other great restaurants downtown. Dinner is on your own.
NOTE: Strict minimum of 6 people (and maximum of 12) are required for this tour to take place. We can put together two smaller groups. Call us if you have 2-5 people.
