December 13, 2019

Looking for a little theatrics with dinner? Look no further than The Dinner Detective, a classic murder mystery experience only a short drive away from ONE. Taking place in a hotel theater, the dinner is a whirlwind game of whodunnit perfect for groups or a special night out. 

Dinner and a Show

The concept is simple: a crime is committed, and everyone at the dinner has to work together to crack the case. However, it gets tricky from there. Guests are invited to participate in solving the mystery, but will be assisted or deceived by actors hidden in the audience. Using interrogations, hidden clues and the theatre’s Detectives, throughout the course of the night, everyone will work together to unmask the killer. 

The murder mystery occurs throughout dinner, with entertainment broken up by appetizers, entree and dessert. The theater also features a full bar with beer, wine and cocktails available for purchase. 

The Dinner Detective is a contemporary murder mystery dinner, with actors dressed in modern day clothing. For guests, business to dressy casual attire is recommended. The show also has an age minimum of 15, so the dinner is best suited to an adult’s night out. 

Tickets are required to attend, with general admission starting at $64.95/person + service fees. If you’re going with a group under ten, the venue will seat everyone together. The Dinner Detective is also perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, group events, holidays, Valentine’s Day, wedding anniversaries, marriage proposals, private work events and more.

The Dinner Detective is located at the Chicago Marriott Schaumburg at 50 N Martingale Road, Schaumburg, IL 60173.
