Meadow Brook Hall Speakeasy 2014
Speakeasy returns to Meadow Brook Hall Thursday, May 29, 2014 for an evening of 1920s prohibition-era fashion, jazz and bootleg beverages. The annual event is an entertaining crowd favorite as patrons dress in the fashion of the 1920s to celebrate the evening at the luxurious Meadow Brook Hall Mansion. In keeping with the speakeasy tradition, guests will also have the opportunity to take their chances at the roulette wheel.
A mini exhibit from the archives of Meadow Brook Hall will be on display that evening. Guests will also have an opportunity to learn about prohibition in Michigan and how it affected different levels of society including the Dodge-Wilson family.
The Speakeasy evening begins at 7pm and runs until 10pm. Tickets are $65 per person and include dinner, drinks and entertainment. Reservations are required. The secret entrance and password will be revealed when you call 248-364-6263 to make your reservation.

Oakland County Moms is proud to partner with Meadow Brook Hall & Gardens to offer an annual contest to give away tickets to Speakeasy. Here’s what last year’s winner had to say about the Speakeasy experience:
“I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how much fun my husband and I had at Meadow Brook for the Speakeasy. It was one of the most fun evenings I have ever had. We meet a so many nice people and the food, fun, and Meadow Brook were all fabulous. If you have never been yourself, you need to go! It is wonderful.
I will go back again for sure to Meadow Brook Hall as it was so beautiful there.
Thanks again for the opportunity of a lifetime as I would have never gone to that event without being your winner. Now I am signing up for membership as I want to help to preserve that beautiful home for future generations to enjoy.” – Donna B of Howell, MI

Constructed between 1926 and 1929, Meadow Brook Hall represents one of the finest examples of Tudor-revival architecture in America, and is especially renowned for its superb craftsmanship, architectural detailing and grand scale of 88,000 square-feet. It was the center of a country estate that included 1,500 acres, numerous farm buildings, recreational facilities, several residences and formal gardens.
