You’ll tackle a hilarious and challenging crime while you feast on a fantastic dinner. Just beware! The culprit is hiding in plain sight somewhere in the room, and you may find yourself as a Prime Suspect before you know it!

We perform at the Waterfront Hotel in Oakland, a beautiful boutique hotel in Oakland’s Jack London Square. Showcasing modern nautical décor and a center-of-it-all location, Waterfront Hotel feels like you’re amid a celebration the minute you enter their brightly colored drive. You’re just minutes from shopping at Jack London Square Market, taking in some culture at the Oakland Museum of California or enjoying some jazz music at Yoshi’s. And if you’re considering a day trip to wine country or the redwoods, they’re five minutes from the Amtrak station and close to Interstates 80, 880, 580, 980, and Highway 24.
