Frequently asked questions

How far in advance can I pick-up my costume?

As early as the Monday before your scheduled performance (subject to availability).

I don’t live in San Francisco, can you mail my costume rental?

Yes! For an additional fee (based on actual shipping charges) we can mail the costume to you.

**Please note, as with any online or catalog clothing purchase, there is a possibility of fit issues. Make sure you are as accurate as possible when sending sizes.

Can I just change at the venue immediately before my performance?

Yes! Located at 748 Broadway, The Dressing Room has multiple changing rooms and a designated area to store your street clothes. We will give you a 4 hour window to get into costume before your Speakeasy check in time.

Do I have to leave a security deposit?

No. However, with each rental there is a contract that must be signed before releasing the costume. The contract clearly states the replacement cost of each item, and notes that if anything is damaged beyond repair, not returned, etc, the card on file will be charged the amount stated on the contract.

I have a basic costume but could use some sprucing up. Can I rent just the accessories?

Yes! We have accessories packages available for rent at $30, and for purchase at $50. The women’s package includes: Headband, gloves, and costume jewelry. The men’s package includes: bow tie, suspenders, and hat (top hat or derby for rental; newsboy cap for purchase). Visit The Dressing Room for more information.

Is there really a dress code?

Yes. Our dress code is strictly enforced on Saturday, and optional on other performances. However, we encourage all of our patrons to dress up no matter what date they are attending to be fully immersed in the fun. 1920’s apparel is preferred, and cocktail attire is also acceptable. Cocktail attire includes a button down collared shirt and tie with slacks and dress shoes; or cocktail style dresses and dress shoes. Tennis shoes, yoga pants, T-shirts, denim, or other casual clothes are not considered acceptable on Saturday evenings. Patrons who are dressed up are more likely to be chosen for audience interaction.
