Wander freely through the historic hallways of The York Manor at L.A.’s decadent “House of Spirits” experience in this stately Highland Park landmark, originally created as a church for a Methodist congregation by notable architects Train & Williams.
After being abandoned for years between the late 1990s and early 2000s, the Tudor revival style structure was restored to its former glory and was eventually declared a Historic-Cultural Monument by the City of Los Angeles.
Now, it will become a gathering place for all things mysterious, magical and macabre. You’ll sip chilling concoctions, mingle with spirits, commune with the dearly departed on a giant Ouija Board, waltz to music and partake in sinister ceremonies. Your entry includes four miniature cocktails (five for VIP), each with its own wicked twist.
Guests will step through crested, wooden double doors and be transported to a world of fantastical elegance where a disquieting, interactive tale unfolds. There’ll be an intriguing cocktail party taking place and resident spirits focus their tale on the demise of the Vasiliev family, at the hands of the unholy ‘miracle man’, Volkov. Inspired by the real-life history of Russian holy man Rasputin and the Romanov royal family, there couldn’t be a more fitting setting than this eerily elegant period manor.
Beyond the square tower with a castle-like parapet, half-timbered gable, the open eaves, the roaming specters and lost souls may guide you to secret rooms. With over a century of history, there’ll be plenty to see on this 10,000-square-foot estate.
