How you doin’? 2020 was a very strange year. I’ll bet you’re as happy to see it come to an end as I am. In celebration, how about a cocktail?... maybe a little poison?... Sweet Poison Cocktail, that is, popularized by the mixologists at New York's Jekyll and Hyde Club.
The Jekyll & Hyde Club is a theme restaurant owned by Eerie World Entertainment in New York City. The name and theme were derived from author Robert Louis Stevenson's 1886 Victorian gothic novel Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
The Jekyll & Hyde restaurants' theme is spooky horror show with an emphasis on English Gothic themes, and including detailed decorations, set pieces, and actors who roam the restaurant and entertain patrons. Characters include Mr. Aloysius Goole, the wacky chief mortician, Jervis, the hyperactive and high-pitched French butler, and the charmingly manic Gertrude K. Boom, club demolitions expert. These characters are the guest's link to all the details of the club's history and perform membership inductions table side.
In addition to the live characters, there are several animatronic props, sounds, and special effects which contribute to the overall atmosphere of the club. The animatronic creatures (either pre-recorded or voiced live by the same actors that walk about the restaurant) animate periodically to entertain the guests. Just because you can’t experience Jekyll & Hyde in person these days, doesn’t mean you can’t experience one of their famous cocktails.

ChefSecret: In 1979, I opened a restaurant on the site of an old funeral parlor in Palo Alto, California. It was going to be a seafood restaurant, but after residents kept asking if it was on the site of the “old morgue,” I decided to use a little imagination and create a spooky Halloween-themed restaurant. It opened on Halloween and closed a year later. I guess I was just ahead of my time.
