Obscura Society NYC Presents: The Lock Picking Party

Join Atlas Obscura for a Celebration of Lock Picking, Drinking, and the Illusion of Security

Learn how to pick locks with one of the world's very best while indulging in classic cocktails, live music and 19th century splendor. Calling the crafty and the curious; everyone leaves with their very own lock picking kit!

For anyone who has ever felt compelled to discover what lies just behind that locked door, this night is for you. Join us for an evening of cocktails and live music set amidst the world's largest collection of antique bank vault locks. Internationally renowned lock picker Schuyler Towne will be demonstrating his impressive skill set, handing out personal lock picking kits and sharing the tricks of the trade.  

The hijinks continue with an open cocktail bar generously flowing through out the night and the swinging sounds of Jason Prover and the Sneak Thievery Orchestra. Break out your best vintage attire, escape the norm and come prepared for a raucous, glamourous affair.

This event is strictly 21+
