This room is based on a real life Manhattan speakeasy from the 1920s called Chumley's. A lot of research went into the making of this room and we wanted to use props that would've made sense in Chumley's!

Let's Play

With such a remarkable atmosphere, it's easy to see why 86 Bedford Street is so popular. But what makes this escape room stand out even more is its dedication to above-and-beyond gameplay. The owners of Just EnCase Escape Games know a thing or two about intricate and well-crafted puzzles, and they've made sure this core principle rings true for all of their rooms, this particular one included!

86 Bedford Street contains many intellectual games and is considered to be a fairly challenging room because of it. For this reason, many people flock to Just EnCase Escape Games — emboldened by the promise of a mentally stimulating experience! And all who try are rewarded no matter the outcome. Win or lose, 86 Bedford Street provides a level of entertainment not offered most places. When we asked the owners what their favorite parts of this escape room were, here's what they said:

One of our favorite things about this room is that the challenge level is high, because the puzzles themselves are intellectual. We pride ourselves on not using "filler puzzles" frequently, and therefore, most of the puzzles in our rooms are incredibly detailed and original. This is especially true for 86 Bedford Street, as it is the newest of our three themes we currently offer.

Let's not pass by the most important takeaway from what they said: Any escape room that elevates their puzzlecraft beyond mere "filler puzzles" is an escape room worth trying. And inside 86 Bedford Street, you'll find expertly crafted, unique puzzles to keep you on your toes from start to finish!

Helpful Hints

With any escape room, no matter the difficulty rating, there are tips and tricks for higher success! Here are some general ideas for your time inside 86 Bedford Street!

  • Communication - Don't get shy now! Your teammates need you (and the hidden key you just found). Many people make the mistake of remaining silent until the room is thoroughly explored, but this is wrong on so many levels! Not only will your constant communication keep the group organized and on track, it will also provide an opportunity to discover even more clues. If Uncle Jack is hoarding an important puzzle piece, but never mentions it, you'll waste valuable time searching for something you've had all along. Our advice? Call out everything you find as you find it!

  • Explore it all - This goes without saying, but you should investigate everything you're allowed to! Once you're inside the escape room, most things are placed specifically for your exploration. Unless your Game Master and/or waiver has told you otherwise, leave no stone unturned! Just make sure to follow all the rules of the room.

  • Stay organized - It's easy to get bogged down when dealing with multiple props and puzzles, but it's important to stay as organized as possible! Some places encourage a discard pile — where you'll place all previously used puzzles, locks and keys — but as long as you're keeping used keys with their locks, and keeping track of games you've already completed, you'll be good to go!

  • Ask for help - Just EnCase Escape Games offers unlimited hints, so if you ever feel stuck or frustrated, don't hesitate to reach out to your attentive Game Master! If you want to make their leaderboard however, stick to three hints or less!

  • Remember your teammates - This one is crucial! Don't forget: Escape-rooming is not a solo sport. The people in your squad are there to help the entire team, and when you work together you'll find the greatest success. It's easy to think of puzzle-hoarding Uncle Jack as the enemy sometimes, but don't! Let each person work their strengths, even if it means taking a backseat during a certain game. Everyone will have their time to shine, since you're all in this together!

That's A Wrap
