Even if you've visited Dracula's Cabaret theatre restaurant in the past, the time has come for you to return. The show has changed, the menu has changed, and both for the better.

Those who have been previously will remember the ghost train, only frightening in that you had no idea how frightening it would be, the creepy cocktail menu and the pre-show easy jazz that accompanied you through dinner. The choice of meal is limited, but dinner is included in the cost of the tickets, as are entrées, morbid moose desserts and breadsticks.

The service can be varied; with some customers on one table receiving entrées after others had finished their mains. Novelty glasses, alcoholic syringes and a walking mechanical hand, among other things, are available for purchase from staff throughout the night.

The Draculettes are engaging and entertaining, as long as you ignore the pressure to purchase merchandise. Beware the framed photo they offer of you and the cast; they won't mention the $18 price until you've all gone out of your way to have it taken.

The new show, Sin and Tonic, is a hilarious and entertaining 80 minute burlesque style song and dance mix intermitted with cheerful stand-up and engaging skits. The show is dynamic and visually impressive, climaxing with energetic renditions of Sympathy for the Devil and Bad Romance. Both original and creative, Sin and Tonic brings new meaning to the phrase 'dinner and a show' and, when combined with the lively service and interesting décor, will ensure the Dracula's experience is one you will never forget.
