American Horror Story: Hotel Murder Mystery Night

Last week, I was invited to the American Horror Story: Hotel murder mystery evening at the beautiful Beaumont Hotel in Mayfair.

Unsure of what to expect, I invited along a clever accomplice and food blogger Sofia Dench to help me tackle the murder mystery challenge. Arriving at the reception dressed in cocktail attire (as per request), we were escorted to the Cub Room, where we were met with crème de cassis champagne and canapes. Iris, the 'Hotel Cortez manager', scurried over to bring us a crucial information challenge pack each: we were to read through the character list, hotel description, serial killer compilation and other bits thoroughly, as they were to be key to our investigation.

After we read through our packs and nibbled on chicken liver parfait bites and quail eggs in celery salt, we were briefed by Iris and James March, the eccentric hotel owner. The setting was 1925, we were invited to the first wedding anniversary of Mr March and his wife Countess Elizabeth. We were to figure out who had killed James March, but we had to 'keep our eyes and ears open' before making a decision.

Conferring over our packs and a glass of wine, Sofia and I were determined to catch the killer. We were lead downstairs to the function room where we were to chat to all the potential suspects: the Countess herself, Liz Tayler the cross dressing bar attendant, Sally the drug addict, and Iris the manager. We were to eavesdrop on the private conversations between characters around the room, encouraged to ask them questions, and talk among ourselves. Who looked suspicious? Who had it out for James? After a good 30 minutes of investigation and open discussion (accompanied by more nibbles and wine) Sofia and I were pretty confident on who to pin the murder on.

Placing our votes, we eagerly awaited the killer to step forward. We were sure it was Iris, the hotel manager, predominantly because she had spoken so negatively of James and slipped me a 'pill' in a tissue whispering "you might need this". Our confidence was quickly struck down as Liz Taylor strutted forward to take responsibility for the murder, hiding a glass bottle shard in her bra.

After the revelation and many cheers and sighs, the guests sat and watched the first episode of American Horror Story: Hotel. Having watched a few episodes here and there of AHS in the past, I was pleasantly intrigued and entertained by the first episode of the Hotel season, and I even left the event only to watch another three over the weekend!
