Established in late 2018 within an elegant Church Street Mansion, Storm Crow Manor boasts a mind-shattering assortment of themed chambers and secret passages, nostalgic and futuristic bars, effervescent mixed drinks, unpredictably crafted menu items, and of course the spookiest decor one would only see in movie sets.

Storm Crow Manor is a unique date night idea with eye-catching interiors across the walls, rooms, and staircases of the entire manor that effortlessly combine immersive ambiances and geek enthusiast culture.


The signature experiential cocktails are a definite staple at Storm Crow Manor, and The Orange Rhapsody is a monthly special for June – made with Galliano Vanilla, Gordon’s Gin, Aperol, lemon juice, simple syrup, and soda, offering a refreshing and tangy delight.

Every sip is contributed to the noble cause of supporting efforts in mobilizing young people in the HIV/AIDS response through a partnership with LetsStopAIDS. The flashing lit-up drink complemented the vibrant atmosphere adding a layer of enjoyment in addition to the creative spin on classic dishes prepared.

A team favourite, Bangarang Tropical Bellini is now pouring at Storm Crow Manor and you know we had to order it!


Storm Crow Manor dishes we tried include Dracarys Platter, Dungeon Poutine, and Buccaneer’s Bucatini, and to top it off for dessert we tried Miss Trunchball’s Chocolate Cake.

All of which we thoroughly enjoyed along with Storm Crow’s amazing customer service. 


When we visited, we were escorted to the Heaven Room – a sanctuary adorned with stained glass depictions of aliens and an ascension to the mothership, onlooking Church Street. The Heaven Room walls are painted with lively colour clouds against a serene turquoise backdrop, instantly feeling like you are transported past earthly bounds.

Our favourite room to visit, though, was the Scarface themed bar room, Black Lodge, located on the top floor. Hidden behind vintage red curtains is black and white floors, a picturesque statue, Scarface framed photographs, dining for guests and a retro themed bar.

You can even party at Storm Crow Manor with the option to rent the Full Manor (200+ capacity), the top floor (100+ capacity) that houses the Mary Shelley Bar, the Eclectic Cthulhu Pub, the Cyberpunk Post-Apocalyptic Lounge, Heaven and Hell alcoves, and the secret Black Lodge.

For smaller parties, the secret Black Lodge bar offers a capacity of 30 guests and the Nautilus Room, hidden behind a secret door in a bookcase, offers a capacity of 20 guests.

Have the most memorable event of them all with a unique venue that just adds to the fun!
