We got the drink package with our burlesque show tickets, which included a bottle of wine, campaign or a bucket of beer. We went with a bottle of wine, which they had a couple different choices to choose from. But we also wanted to have a bit of fun so we got a 'flask' of Tito's for $65. It was larger than a normal flask and gave us about 8 (heavy pours) drinks between two people, mixers were included as well. The show was incredible. Each of the acts was somehow better than the one before. All the dancers were energetic, sexy and extremely talented. My boyfriend and I went to celebrate our anniversary and Ivan announced everyone who was there celebrating something that evening. We also got to come back for the 'afterparty' nightclub for free since we were there celebrating. The afterparty was fun, but drinks were way more expensive than they were downstairs. The dancers also came back out and were dancing during the afterparty, so it was like getting two shows in one. All in all, it was an expensive evening, but well worth the memories. Definitely recommend!

Absolutely wonderful time at the 7pm show. 10 out of 10. My only complaint was that it was too loud for me (but that might just mean I’m too old :-)

The description of the speakeasy was good is chef inspired and drink service. The food was terrible and was served as a main course a piece of pizza that resembled a frozen pizza from a grocery store that was of the cheapest variety and the pasta was a lean cuisine frozen meal. You pay 65.00 for the supper club!!! The drink package was not as expected a small flask for 4 people and to get a regular size bottle cost 170.00 that you can go to the liquor store and get for 25.00. The show was ok as there were three performance and one appearance from the ladies. The band was great. At the end the light came on and was told to get out. Will not be back. Terrible experience!

I found the Forty Deuce when exploring Valentine’s Day options. At the time it was completely sold out and I decided to book a group event for my Husband’s 40th Birthday. I book an event for 10 people which was $502.00. The ambience going into the speak easy and the actual venue was very nice. Apparently, I ordered the drink only package in error, I asked to add on the meal plan for all of my guests, I was told that was not an option. I asked if my guests could order off the menu and was told that wasn’t an option either. Only food options were appetizers-French fries, loaded fries, onion rings, fried pickles and fried Mac n cheese bites. I ordered all appetizers available for my guests/the onion rings never arrived. Appetizers were not good, I imagine the actual food being the same. Since we were seated on the “bridge” we had to hold out drinks and all of our belongings. Our waitress was extremely rude. The show was nice but quick-3 dancers and a small band performance. When it ended I assumed it was an enter-mission but, no it was the end. $502 for 1pints of jack daniels and 1 pint of Tito’s and a sip of champagne per person is not worth $502. I would not suggest to others or go back!

We loved the atmosphere and entertainment.
The “supper” part was not good. The main course was terrible. Some kind of pasta that was drowning in sauce and a tiny piece of freezer-brand pizza. Definitely seemed like they ran out of food and tried to quickly shove something on the plate.

Aside from the food, the entertainers (dancers and musicians) were exceptional.

Amazing unique experience! I was looking for a date night with music, not just dinner and my daughter suggested Ivan Kane’s based on reviews! It did not disappoint! Both my boyfriend and I had an amazingly fun night! And the food was also great! Wonderful servers! Fantastic show! We will be taking friends with us next time!

Booking was confusing. Upon arrival,, they had lost our reservation.. Everything else was wonderful, except the food. I understand that our tickets really mostly covered the show and bottle service, which were lovely, however our dinner tasted as if it had been sitting out for some time, not fresh. Apparently with the dinner package, you are unable to add items from the Cafe menu, and we were quite disappointed as we both hoped to try the milkshakes featured on the website upon booking. The musicians and dancers were phenomenal as were our servers, very attentive and kind. I would say next time we will plan to eat in the Cafe, then purchase a drink package to see the show. It was all very confusing when attempting to book. The dinner package needs to be more varied.

The show and ambience were a good fun time. The food was subpar to put it mildly. It tasted like hamburger helper. It was a few chunks of chicken with a whole plate of nothing but peas. The salad was a tomato and mozzarella cheese plate.. we told them in advance we were allergic to tomatoes. Thwy then took the plates back and brought us out plates with just wheels just wheels cheese. Like who would want 5 big junks of cheese by itself? We actually had to get something to eat somewhere else after we left. I think your food downstairs in the cafe is great, but the supper club meal was not at all worth the price. I would have rather had something easy that tastes good than something trying to sound fancy and tastes bad. It was a giant swing and a miss on the food. The rest of the night was fun though.

This place is a MUST! Came in with no expectations, just an open mind and hopes for a good show and some drinks. My husband and I were blown away. The service was great, the food was awesome, and the performances were incredible! The girls were so talented and the live band took it to a whole other level. We will be back!

A nice new speak easy scene for Columbus, OH. It is a great value for your money, I recommend having a few drinks before you get there. Drinks are are pricey. Food is average not bad, but nothing to brag about. The bad and the dancers were 5star. Great show and overall great experience

Loved the concept, the energy and the service was great! Very unique and will highly recommended. The only downside, that is enough to negate the whole experience, is that the actual performance was only 22 minutes total. 😕 maybe spread it out a little more? Or charge more? Idk

We stumbled upon this by accident trying to book the Cafe.
Several issues:

The food is a set menu which isn't obvious when booking. And there are no refunds.

The bottle service is only a $12 bottle of wine, so nothing fancy, but whatever. The wine "glasses" are plastic.

I asked for a bottle of water but apparently they were out... whatever...

Reservation is for 6, show starts at 7 and is supposed to be over at 8. They turned the music off and started cleaning by 7:30ish.

The show was good, the dancers worked their butts off.

I definitely don't think it was worth the almost 400 dollars we spent between tip/tickets/drinks for 3 people.

Responded on April 3, 2021

Hi there, It is stated on our website it is a prix fixe menu and is non refundable. I'm concerned you arrived at a total for $400 when tickets are $55.00 per/person and includes a three course, complimentary shot, bottle of wine/champagne, VIP table, and show? Would you mind sending me your info, perhaps you were double charged? The only other charges would be if you ordered off our cocktail menu where drinks vary from $10-$12.

Very fun, very unique experience. The food was ok. Small portion of fettuccine alfredo as the main course and tiramisu for dessert (which was fantastic).

Don't come here for the food - come here for the unique experience and the fun show. The show was fantastic and a lot of fun.

Overall, I'd go back for sure. I really enjoyed it.
